Why online preparation for your au pair makes sense:
A new au pair takes on a crucial role in the family with serious responsibilities for the care and well-being of your children. You want the best au pair with the best preparation for this important role.
Preparation makes a difference
When au pairs start their stay with an overview of the au pair role, childcare activities and home safety, they can learn more quickly on the job and take on their new responsibilities more effectively.
Commitment from both sides
Au pairing depends on a positive process of give and take. You give the course, your au pair commits to the preparation, and together you have the first step of a happy partnership for the au pair stay.
Au pair preparation from Babyem - How it works
After your purchase of the course, your au pair can work through the course at their own pace with learning checks for each unit.
The Babyem course material has been developed by a highly qualified childcare team and features 6 hours of well-structure interactive materials with lots of videos and practical learning examples.
When the course has been completed, the au pair gets a certificate of completion that they can share with you. More information on the Babyem course is available here.
