A demi pair is like an au pair, they live with your family and assist with childcare and light domestic duties.
A demi pair is the holder of a Student Visa hence they are required, by law, to attend school and usually study General English. Demi pairs are only allowed to work 20 hours per week on their Student Visa. Generally demi pairs will only suit families who live close to major city areas and need late afternoon or early evening help. Demi pairs receive accommodation and meals plus $150 minimum per week for 20 hours work.
The main role of a nanny is to provide a safe, caring and stimulating environment for children within the family home. Nannies should be qualified or have a solid amount of experience in childcare. In most cases, nannies require a full-time position and in a sole-charge role. Depending on the nanny’s experience, she will be capable and experienced in caring for young babies to pre-schoolers.
Nannies are responsible for keeping the children’s areas clean and tidy and looking after the children’s belongings, including bathing, feeding, meal preparation and any other activities relating to the children.
Nannies are available live-in or live-out. The Placement Fee for a nanny is $850.00. We have 20 years experience recruiting and placing nannies with our client families. We will do the hard work for you with our thorough interview techniques and disregard applicants who we feel are unsuitable.
Mother’s helpers can be a great benefit to families who require another pair of hands at the busy and frantic times of the day. They assist with childcare and light day to day domestic duties. Mother’s helpers, like au pairs, are available live-in or live-out.
