If you are looking for a live-in Nanny (Au Pair) for New Zealand or Australia, you have come to the right place! Linguavision offers young people a chance to get to know another culture through au pair programs in New Zealand and Australia. We have very motivated and experienced childcare providers, so please do not hesitate to contacting us right away.
Generally, an Au Pair is doing the same tasks as a Nanny (childcare, some cleaning and cooking). However, having an Au Pair means so much more because of the cultural aspect and the flexibility it gives to you as a parent. Your child will get the opportunity to learn a new language and encounter something totally different.
Our Au Pairs are interviewed -either in person or via a phone interview- and they are all experienced with childcare (this can be babysitting, kindergarten work, experience as a scout leader, teacher etc.). We also ask for childcare and character references, enabling us to see who is best suitable for your family. An interview report is available upon request.
What matters to you!
We do not place any au pair in any family, but look at interests, personality and the way you raise your children - the things that are important to you - plus the relevant experience of the applicant. We also ask for a police certificate of good conduct and a medical check.
We know it is important for you to feel safe with your new family member and we do everything to achieve this to make sure you and your children have a wonderful time too! Our Au Pairs/Nannies speak more than just basic English, so communication will not be a problem. They also have a full driver's license and most of them have done a first aid course.
Having an au pair is a big challenge, as you do not only trust this person with what is most precious to you, you will also allow him or her to become a part of your family.
What makes us different?
Linguavision is different in the way that we care about the contact with both family and the Au Pair during the program. We have been Au Pairs ourselves and traveled around the world and know that a warm and safe environment is the key to success! Happy Au Pairs give happy children and therefore also happy parents. That is our main aim!
We also participate in seminars, workshops and conferences in New Zealand and Australia but also overseas (e.g IAPA Annual Conference - the International Au Pair Association, which has international guidelines, rules and regulations for the Au Pair industry) so that we are trained to only give the best possible service and place the right Au Pair in your family.
You will also be happy when you find out how reasonable our charges are. Especially when you have more than one child, having an Au Pair is more beneficial than daycare. On top of that you get the cultural bonus and flexibility.
If you feel that being part of this cultural exchange can enrich your children and also your own life and you want to experience why we are the best, contact us now for more information or go directly to the application form. We look forward to hearing from you!
