Live-in Au Pairs & Nannies


Live-in Au Pairs

An au pair is typically a young, single person from overseas who wants to come to Australia to further their English and to live as part of a family to experience the Australian way of life.

Having a live-in au-pair is an enriching and fulfilling experience that offers the benefits of cultural exchange and affordable childcare for your family and provides the au-pair with experience caring for children and an opportunity to experience a new and exciting culture.

Au-pairs live with a family and provide a combination of child care and light housework duties in exchange for board and a small weekly wage.

In Australia, most au-pairs are travelling on a 12 month visa, so placements usually last 6 months or more, allowing some time for the au-pair to travel.

All our au pairs are fully screened, reference checked and personally interviewed and selected to match your requirements. We follow a rigorous & professional recruitment process and make sure they have Working with Children Checks/Blue Cards, references, and knowledge of 1st Aid.

Our Au Pairs have great English, are confident drivers for those who need a driver, and have a love of children and family life.

We also provide and recommend Au Pair Training if required, and provide ongoing support to your Au Pair as well as to your family.

Dream Nannies is committed to the safety and wellbeing of your family and we aim to give you the highest quality au pairs to make sure you and your children have a positive and enjoyable experience.

“Thank you for providing quality au pairs in such a timely fashion.” – S.Gatt, March 2013

“Annabel is fantastic! We couldn’t be happier! I just wish she could stay longer!
Thank you so much for finding her for us “ – K.Ambrose – May 2014 

We had two weeks to find a new au pair and I called three agencies, as well as placing my own advertisements. Jackie responded the day I called Dream Nannies, had the first interview lined up within 48 hours and within a week we had found the ideal candidate. She saved me hours of time, was great to work with and extremely professional in her approach with both ourselves and the candidates. I will definitely use Dream Nannies again and highly recommend Jackie” – M.Donevska – Oct 2014
