What a year it has been.
We have had a great year and have many happy families around Ireland. We also have a new online first aid course that all Au Pairs must complete.
We also have a new sister agency call My Au Pair.ie. We offer families a pay monthly option for placements.
Also 30% of our placement have stayed on longer than planned which is great news for families as they have stability in the long term.
I have been alarmed by the amount of agencies that have been appearing and disappearing on a constant basis. We have a certain caliber of Au Paris that we place and competition doesn’t bother me as we only specialize in Spanish Teachers, Childcare workers or people working with children. It is worrying for families as many of them are not insured and would not offer the support as many of the top agencies do. In choosing an agency please make sure they are part of INAPA (Irish National Au Pair Association)
Please remember that it is choosing some one to be with your kids on a daily basis and it is well worth taking time to find the right Au Pair.
Have a great New Year and roll on 2015
