IMPORTANT: Due to rising oil prices, the cost of airfares to Australia has increased significantly. To offset this price rise, we have increased our fee to Au Pairs. However, it is expected that there will be a number of flight dates in 2022 when the host family may be required to pay a flight contribution. When a placement has been offered, we will provide the host family with a list of all flight dates including those where a flight contribution will apply. Flight contributions will not be greater than AU $100-$200 per Au Pair. 

CLASSIC - these Au Pairs primarily have experience with children aged 3+

PLUS  - these Au Pairs have a minimum of 100 hours childcare experience with children aged under 3 years.

PLATINUM  - these Au Pairs have either a formal qualiafication (degree or diploma) in a childcare related profession or a minimum of 2 years F/T work experience in a child-care related job.

Families choosing outside of the age range  - if an Au Pair is qualified to care for children aged under 3 years old, the family will be required to pay the Au Pair PLUS fee even if their children are aged 3 years or older. If a family with children aged under 3 years, choose a  CLASSIC Au Pair, they will only be required to pay the CLASSIC fee.  

Extensions - A weekly extension fee is payable for families wishing to extend beyond the agreed date of the placement. This fee covers assistance with the extension (if applicable) and the ongoing support services. The weekly cost of the extension varies according to the au pair tier (CLASSIC, PLUS, PLATINUM) the initial placement duration, and if the placement is with a new or returning family.  Please click here for further details. 

Returning Families  

The Total Fee for Returning families includes the Service & Placement Fee less the Returning Family discount ($200). The service fee will be invoiced upon registering for a new au pair, the placement fee less the return family discount will be invoiced upon confirmation of a placement. Returning family discounts are only applicable to families whose last placement was completed within the last 12 months.
