Aussie Au Pair Services

A little bit about us...

A little bit about us...

 

 

Aussie Au Pair Services was started in 2016 to help families source Au Pairs from all over the world to help fill their childcare needs in a cost effective and home based manner. 

It was started by Sue Pember who has a passion for helping families and making a difference in the community. 

The point of difference between our new Au Pair company and other companies out there is that we have a qualified European Case Manager/Social Worker with 2 years Au Pair experience who works as a liaison between the Au Pair and your family to ensure a happy and healthy working environment for all involved. 

Our Case Manager will set guidelines and expectations so the Au Pair understands their duties and the host family know about limitations and both have a person to call on with any questions or queries that arise. Our Case Manager will also act as a support to the Au Pair if they feel overwhelmed or concerned about their situation.

We will also offer a social support network to the Au Pair so they have the opportunity to meet others in the same situation. Au Pair and Family inductions are facilitated on arrival and the ongoing support starts as soon as the Au Pair arrives with your family. 

Aussie Au Pair Services also have a designated GP Emily MacDonald from Ellen Heath to be the Au Pairs contact if they have any health questions or concerns while in Australia.
