Open your doors to Australia's most trusted alternative to traditional childcare.

Taking the step to welcome an Au pair to your home is a big one so finding the right agency is important.

AIFS Au Pair is Australia's only Child Wise accredited Au Pair agency. Our focus on child protection and screening is peace of mind for any family. Prior to being accept to AIFS, every one of our Au pairs are police and medical checked, completes an interview process, and must provide references which are verified.

Before heading to your home, AIFS Au Pairs attend an orientation week in Sydney, complete first aid training as well as face-to-face sessions including topics on age-appropriate care and culture shock.

Throughout your placement, AIFS offers you comprehensive support. This includes our own unique after-hours Community Counsellor support. It is one of the reasons why so many AIFS families use our service year upon year.

Hosting an Au pair is more than just childcare; it will open your doors to a life-changing cultural exchange which offers a global experience for your children. Whether your family is in Melbourne, Cooma or Cairns, let AIFS help open the door to a life-changing experience.
