Becoming an Au Pair (live-in nanny) gives you the unique opportunity to work and travel and experience other countries and cultures with the security of being in a home-away-from-home environment.

Au Pairs get a chance to combine all the fun and excitement of a being part of a young family in another country, with the opportunity to travel and meet some of life’s most memorable people.

Dream Au Pair Programme

Dream Au Pair is your Au Pair Team in New Zealand. We can help you be an Au Pair in the USA. We work with InterExchange, our New York based partner, to ensure our Kiwi Au Pairs have the very best experience.

As an Au Pair, you will work as a live-in nanny and help care for the family’s children. You will have your own private room and all meals will be provided like you are just one of the family. In addition to room and board, you will receive a weekly stipend from your Host Family.
