Hosting an au pair - the perfect solution

An au pair is the ideal solution for many families, providing extra help, in a flexible, and personal way. Hosting an au pair is cultural exchange with the benefit of flexible, affordable childcare.


Flexible, affordable childcare with a cultural exchange

Fitting in all of the activities and necessities of a busy family life can sometimes be a challenge. An au pair can be with your children when you are at work, at appointments, at functions, picking up and dropping off other children, and even babysitting, giving you the opportunity to spend an evening out, without having to organise a babysitter.
