The Au Pair Programme is a cultural exchange for young European people aged between 18 to 27 years.
An Au Pair lives as part of the family and is expected to be made welcome as a family member. He/She is an extra pair of hands for a busy household and should be treated as part of the family, not an employee.
Duties include childcare and light housework such as cleaning, ironing, washing-up at mealtimes and helping with the children.
Au Pairs should not be asked to undertake heavy duty chores. An Au Pair may be asked to take children to and from school, assist with after school activities and supervise them in a responsible manner in the absence of the parents according to the instructions given.
The Au pair Programme is widely acknowledged as a "Cultural exchange" experience throughout many countries around the world. It provides young people with the opportunity of experiencing day-to-day life within a secure family setting on a truly personal basis in their country of choice.
