for your family
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 pocket money
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 and experience Australia.
All our Au Pairs are fully screened, reference checked and personally interviewed and selected to match your requirements. We follow a rigorous and professional recruitment process and make sure they have Working with Children Checks / Blue Cards, references and knowledge of First 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 Pair to make sure you and your children have a positive and enjoyable experience.
Live in Au Pairs offer the most flexible and affordable childcare for families who have the space and desire to share their homes. Au Pairs are paid weekly “pocket money” in addition to being provided with accommodation and meals.
Most Au Pairs receive between $250 – $350 pocket money per week and are very flexible to work around families requirements – perfect for shift workers, rural families and busy working families needing that extra help around the home.
Dream Nannies specialise in recruiting experienced Au Pairs (Au Pair Plus) and Live-in Nannies for families that have younger children/babies, or larger families that need someone with good experience / qualifications / training.
Families pay slightly more to get a lot more benefits and the experience you need. Experienced Au Pairs and Live-in Nannies can care for children sole charge or work alongside a stay at home mum, and can also help with the smooth running of the household.
Dream Nannies have Live-in Nannies available from Australia and New Zealand who can also be available for 12 month placements.
Unlike Au Pairs who are here as a cultural exchange, Live in Nannies are to be treated as employees and are usually following a childcare career.
