Become a Host Family

Au Pair New Zealand and family H in AucklandAn Au Pair is a young person from overseas who comes to New Zealand on a Working Holiday Visa. They come to improve their English, travel around, discover a different part of the world, but also get to know themselves better while they earn some money from looking after your children, help with light household chores and do some babysitting when required. An Au Pair is a great, flexible home based childcare option and although you are their employer, they become part of your family and will live with you at home, so it is important to see your au pair as a big sister or brother to your children and treat them as such. An au pair does not need any formal qualification in childcare, but has experience of working with children (babysitting, camp leader, tutor for example) and they stay from a few months up to one year. This depends on your requirements and their visa.
