Certified Au Pairs


About Us

CA LogoMaking the decision to become an au pair is about more than looking after children. It’s about immersing yourself in another family and becoming an integral part of a child’s development and growth. Becoming an au pair offers individuals far-reaching opportunities for travelling overseas or even obtaining valuable childcare experience locally.

Although au pairing can often be described as a rewarding experience, it’s not for the faint-hearted and should only be pursued by those who have a genuine passion for children. With great reward comes great responsibility, and where the health and safety of a child is concerned, no wiser word could be spoken. Personal characteristics that are often used to describe au pairs are: patient, caring, reliable, hardworking and compassionate. For those who can confidently say that they have these personality traits stand the chance to benefit from a number of advantages, both financial and personal.

C.A.P gives these individuals the knowledge and opportunity to become top qualified au pairs – giving them the credibility of a formal qualification as well as the right tools and resources to start off their journey as a caregiver. Our au pair training programme divides au pairs into three categories according to their qualifications and experience, and guides them along the path to becoming a certified au pair.
