Au Pair Training

Au Pair Training 

Australia is one of the most popular countries to come to for a working holiday as an au pair. Sun, surf, easy going people and fun…you will experience all of these highlights when you visit.  But Australia is also very family-focused and concerned with child safety; parents will expect you to have the skills and knowledge to keep kids safe when you have an au pair job. That is why Dream Nannies recommends that each of our au pairs prepares first with an online training course designed just for au pairs in Australia.

If you want to be an Au Pair – you need to take this course!

The course will take you about 6 hours to complete, and you can log in and log out at your convenience.  You will be asked to watch instructional videos, learn from case studies, and complete short quizzes along the way.  The course covers the following in six fun, easy lessons:
