Training Structure

The AuPair Academy training has been developed with the well being of children in mind and designed by a busy full time working mum with 8+ years experience hosting Au Pairs.

The training will be provided in your own home without interrupting your family's routine, it will be hands-on and will cover key childcare topics that I am sure will help you and your Au Pair in your au pairing/host family experience.  

The training is structured in a way to help your Au Pair understand the necessary skills needed to make the Au Pair experience a safe, memorable and happy one for both you, the host family, and your Au Pair.
