Earn Money & Experience Life Living with a New Zealand Host Family

As you help with childcare and light housework in exchange for your own private room, all meals, a flexible schedule and a weekly stipend up to $195 USD (dependent on experience and hours), you will quickly become part of the family! Live like a local in a vibrant New Zealand city or town while doing work that is meaningful and rewarding.

Most participants are first time Au Pairs. You will need to demonstrate previous childcare experience which can range from babysitting, summer camps, volunteering, coaching, tutoring, teaching or having formal qualifications in child care.

6 Month or 12 Month Program - Your Choice!


Work a 5 day week and get two full consecutive days off per week (1 free weekend per month), so you can explore your new city or catch up with other Au Pairs and discover for yourself why New Zealand is one of the top destinations for millennial travelers from across the world.

We provide extensive pre-departure support and our partner agency in New Zealand has an amazing 2-3 day free orientation program that you will join. Orientation includes picking you up at Auckland International Airport and all accommodation, meals, course materials and expert tuition. We also stay in touch to ensure you are settled and enjoying your experience. You can connect online with other Au Pairs in the program before you leave the US, and participate in monthly social activities in New Zealand. 

You can make back the money it costs you to participate in the program!

You only pay the program fee once and can extend to the 12 month program while in New Zealand for free.  Choose to extend your time with the same family or join a new family, or just spend some time traveling around New Zealand. You also get paid annual leave in addition to your weekly stipend. On the 6 month program you get two weeks paid annual leave and on the 12 month program you get 4 weeks paid annual leave. Plus, you are entitled to have a paid day off on public holidays! 

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis year round, so apply today and experience life as an Au Pair in New Zealand. You can apply up to 6 months in advance of your planned departure date.  Let us know your preferred start date and you could be with your host family in as little as 6 weeks. It is possible to participate in the program with a friend and we will do our best to place you near each other.

Our Au Pair in New Zealand Program is only $650.00 USD
