These are strange times that we all find ourselves in with the world as we know it having changed. Many parents are trying to balance work commitments and deadlines with ensuring their children are completing the work that they have been given by schools. While high school children are generally able to be left to their own devices, kids in primary school, particularly foundation phase, have not developed the skills of self-study and require constant attention and assistance with getting through their school work and the load is sometimes insane!

We have secured an Essential Services Certification and all our au pairs will have a permit to work as an essential services provider under child care. Many of our au pairs are ready to get back to work and are available to come in and assist you half or full day. We are focusing our efforts with candidates who are studying teaching in the primary school levels for these particular requests.

We have also revised our rates to offer families a special lock down placement fee.

About us

Launched in 2015, Mother’s Load Au Pairs initially focused on the placement of mature au pairs that have wisdom, knowledge and patience working with children; and for families who want to be supported by an experienced and loving au pair in their daily life.

Over time we have come to appreciate that age is just a number but level of maturity and life experiences are what make candidates of all ages suitable au pairs.

While we have had great success with our mainstream au pair placements, we established a huge need for au pairs, tutors and facilitators for families whose children have remedial or special needs requirements.
