We add a more personal touch with our selection. All of our Au Pairs are vetted, checked and references verified. Our Au Pair profiles usually have between 7 - 10 documents which include proof of education, criminal health check, copy of passport, verified childcare references and any other documents that they feel are important for the role. We also only place Au Pairs who have a genuine interest in working with children.
There are many Spanish Au Pairs in Ireland. There is a huge Spanish network in Ireland. They settle very well and are very like the Irish. They are very family orientated and are very social. They also rarely get home sick as it is only two hours on a plane home. They enjoy going out on day trips at weekends and they love to sample the Irish culture.
Our Au Pairs are the highest paid in Europe and receive between €150 - €200 per week and our Au Pairs work no more than 30 hours. We are very proud to say we are the First Au Pair Agency in Ireland to advise higher pocket money and our placements are a huge success.
Happy Au Pair = Happy Children = Happy Home.
Our Au pairs do not do more that 30 hours + a nights baby sitting.
Depending on requirements it can take anything from one week to four weeks. Please be as specific in your questionnaire as possible. The Au Pair and family choose each other as we try and get everyones interests matching.
We advise 3 Skype interviews. Usually Au Pairs are nervous during the first interview so please speak slowly. The second Skype interview get the children involved and the when reaching the third Skype everyone is happy with the match and discuss terms.
Please remember that this is a cultural exchange program and it is important for all Au Pairs to sample everything about the Irish culture. The food, sport, places and everything else that makes us Irish. Many Au Pairs do their own thing at the weekend with other Au pairs but feel free to invite to join you for some activities at the weekend if you feel they would enjoy it. The Au pairs also teach children some Spanish and thankfully many of our families stay in touch with their past Au Pairs for many years after they go back to Spain.

Yes we do once there are English classes within 30 minutes of the house. We do our research on your area and see if there are English classes and other Au Pairs. They will need to drive if there is not a bus stop close to the area.
If issues cant be resolved we investigate the cause and then we can get a replacement if we can find a match. If the issues are the families fault such as hours or pocket money issues the Au Pair will be moved as soon as possible.
