Families provide a wonderful opportunity for you to become part of their family and to benefit by the wider friendship of their local church. Relationships begun in this way are often deep and long lasting. You can join our closed facebook group and meet many other au pairs if you are in the UK, especially in London. If you want to go to the USA, we have Christian families from many States. Minimum of one year commitment. At any time you can write or speak to us. Skype calls are cheap and effective.

Countries you can go
United Kingdom or EuropeMost of our au pairs come to the United Kingdom. It is very simple to arrange. Travel to the UK is cheap and there are no visas to arrange if you are from Europe. Ideally you will come for a year but we can be flexible if you can only come for a shorter time. You can start in any month. If you are coming for only 6 months February is your best choice. You have the choice of London, which is multicultural, or many other parts of this varied kingdom. There are sometimes possibilities for Europe as well.
USAThe United States opens its doors to many nationalities to apply as au pairs. The rules are far more strict than for other countries. You must stay for one year and the costs to apply are greater. However the benefits are also greater. Christian au pairs in the USA have a unique opportunity. Read all of the information carefully. If you are interested please apply.
CanadaCanada is a huge country and dual language, English and French. You can expect that the culture will be somewhere between American and English. You will need to find your air fare. AT THE MOMENT CANADA IS NOT AVAILABLE DUE TO VISA ISSUES.
AustraliaAustralia is a very different experience for those who want to go to the ends of the earth. You should expect to stay for one year. The arrangements are similar to the UK but you need to afford your air fare. Most of our families are likely to be in the South east of the country. Christian au pairs in Australia enjoy a "laid back" cultural experience.
What is an Au Pair?
An Au Pair is normally a single person, male or female, aged 17 years or more. You are here primarily to look after children and learn the language as well as being an extra pair of hands. An au pair's duties might include washing, ironing, light house-work (vacuuming, dusting, washing dishes), meal preparation, taking children to and from play-group/school, and otherwise helping with the children (feeding, bathing, creative activities, homework). As an au pair you can work for up to 25 hours per week, usually 5 hours per day, with usually two days per week completely free, including Sunday. You will usually receive £75 per week or more depending on the location, and you will get free lodgings and meals.
What is an Au Pair Plus
Sometimes the normal 5 hours a day or 25 hours may not be enough for a busy family with two working parents. An Au Pair Plus will still not take care of a baby under the age of two for regular long hours.
An Au Pair Plus is normally a single person, male or female, aged 18 years or more. You might help with children and light household chores for around 30 hours per week. While an Au Pair Plus can work more than a normal au pair, the hours should be kept to 30 hours per week during term time where possible, to enable you to attend language classes if you wish.
Normal Au Pair Plus duties include childcare, preparing light meals for the children, tidying, washing and ironing, light housework such as dusting, sweeping/mopping and vacuuming, cleaning the kitchen or bathroom. Jobs which are not considered routine light housework include wiping down skirting boards and paintwork, polishing brass or silver etc. Your family will give you a timetable and the total number of hours they expect you to work. Traditionally the Au Pair's work is at least 50% child related, so any variation on this needs to be discussed and agreed with you in advance. If you will be the only person doing most of the weekly housework, or if the job involves little or no childcare, you should tell us. Some male Au Pairs may be willing to undertake outdoor tasks instead of doing indoor housework.
The payment you will receive is from £85 per week depending on the location, and you will get free lodgings and meals.
What is a Mothers Helper
A mothers helper is not normally a formally qualified nanny but is an experienced childcarer usually aged 18 or more with references to show that they can care for infant children.
Normal working hours would be a maximum of 40 hours a week with weekends free. A mother’s helper may also care for a baby or young child if they have 50 hours experience or qualifications. The timetable and responsibilities for a mother’s helper will be agreed with the agency beforehand.
The payment you will receive is from £120 per week depending on the location and your experience, and you will get free lodgings and meals.
