About AuPair Academy

AuPair Academy delivers one to one  practical in-home personalised training for Au Pairs. My aim is to ensure the best possible experience for both host families and Au Pairs and promote the safety & well being of your children.

While you continue with your busy schedule, AuPair Academy will train your Au Pair in your home with a programme that is tailored specifically to your family’s routines and requirements. It will provide your Au Pair with solid grounding in childcare best practice, safety & first aid awareness and everything will be done within a supervised environment.

The AuPair academy will help you to get set for a successful and rewarding experience and will provide your Au Pair with all the necessary knowledge to help with their Au Pair journey.

AuPair Academy is the first company of its kind in Ireland. It was born from a true passion for education and years of personal experience training Au Pairs in the home environment. I am a true believer that spending quality time training Au Pairs at the beginning of their stay will set your family and Au Pair on the path to a successful and mutually rewarding experience.

 

About Me

Originally from Spain, I married an Irish man and have been living in Dublin for the past 18 years, working full time in the communications industry. As the proud mother of two great kids, I am passionate about childhood education and have successfully applied a wide variety of training and mentoring skills both in my career and family life over the years.

If you asked my family and friends to describe me (and I did before starting this little adventure!) they would regard me as a highly organised person that loves crossing off tasks on to do lists, who loves cleanliness and tidiness, with great attention to detail and someone who takes great pride in a job well done. They would also say that I am bubbly, cheerful, empathetic, and a good communicator who loves being creative when the situation allows. My kids would say (and did say!) that I am a good teacher, a good worker, neat, funny, loving, caring, fashionable and nice. 

I am fully aware of the countless challenges that childcare poses for all busy working parents and firmly believe that hosting Au Pairs is an excellent choice for many families. In my own family we have hosted Au Pairs for the past eight years and have had extremely rewarding experiences that have both enriched our family life and brought us lifelong friendships.

The first few weeks of hosting an Au Pair can be very demanding with language, communication and cultural challenges to address. I believe that  it is extremely important that adequate time is spent training your Au Pair at the beginning of their stay as this will save you time and effort and will help avoid misunderstandings in the long run.

I speak fluent and native level Spanish, English & French and have a working knowledge of German. With a degree in translation and interpreting, I am Garda vetted, fully certified in Paediatric First Aid and currently qualifying in Training Delivery & Evaluation (QQI).
