Childcare for the summer holidays – what's your plan?

Arranging childcare during the summer school holidays can pose a major challenge for working parents. With a summer au pair as part of your family team, you can relax and enjoy everything the summer has to offer.

With school not in session, childcare needs to be available for the whole day - a completely different challenge from during the school year. Does your family have a plan for the summer months?

Traditional summer childcare

  • Summer camps
  • Local babysitters
  • Relatives

But can these really give the flexibility and variety that you and your kids are looking for?

Hosting a summer au pair – What's really involved?

A young person (aged between 18 and 30) joins your family as a new temporary member for the summer.

  • Au pairs help with childcare and family tasks - usually for about 30 hours per week.
  • In return, au pairs get a room of their own in the family home, share meals with the family and receive a standard amount of monthly pocket money.

Finding an au pair is simple
