Au Pairs Gauteng

Get Your Career off the Ground with Au Pairs in Gauteng from NannyMaids

It’s no secret that career, marriage and kids are a huge juggling act, and with women now making up more than 50% of the workforce, it’s hard to meet their obligations without help. No mother truly wants to leave their little one at a day care or even at home with their domestic worker while they go off to work. If they could stay at home they would, but due to our down turned economy, the reality is that men work, women work and children need care. While the aspirations of the modern working woman continue to soar, one can’t help but wonder how most working moms in Gauteng do it all. Well, we’ll let you in on a little secret – they hire au pairs in Gauteng through us at NannyMaids!

We Find Exceptional Au Pairs with Impeccable References

Finding au pairs in Gauteng that are legitimate and trustworthy is quite a tough job to do on your own. Do you really have what it takes to do all the legwork, screening, calling, background and criminal checks? Because remember, when you hire an au pair, you’re inviting a stranger into your home that you know absolutely nothing about. It doesn’t matter how friendly they look, how presentable, honest and clean-cut they appear – can you really afford to leave your child alone with someone you know very little about? The worst thing that you can do is to hire au pairs in Gauteng without the proper references, experience and training – if you’re a parent of a young child looking for au pairs in Gauteng, then you’ve come to the right place.

At NannyMaids, we’ve been in the nanny and au pair industry for many years, and as a credible nanny and maid placement agency in Gauteng, we provide the peace of mind that comes from doing meticulous investigations and background checks on all our au pairs in Gauteng. From biometric fingerprint screening to criminal checks – we will ONLY offer you an outstanding candidate with an exceptional track record.

We Only Hire Au Pairs who are Educated in Childcare

At NannyMaids, we believe that au pairs should not only be caring, clean-cut, honest, loving and fun – they must also have experience and training in childcare. Young children are prone to accidents and when you leave for work each day, it will give you peace of mind knowing that your au pair knows how to handle situations ranging from medical to psychological. Because every child is different, we take the time to get to know both our clients and our au pairs before we make a perfect match. Above and beyond having experience and a credible track record, our requirements range from the following:

  • They must have a valid driver’s license and own their own car;
  • They must be able to collect children from school and take them to their extra mural activities;
  • They must be able to do basic shopping, and make lunch and dinner if required;
  • They must have completed a childcare course with children from 3 months to 16 years old;
  • They must agree to commit for at least one full year;
  • They must have a good command of English or Afrikaans, and Zulu or Xhosa if required;
  • They must be in good health and be a non-smoker;
  • They must be able to help children with homework; and
  • They must love working with children of all ages.


Our Au Pair Services will Save You Money

Money doesn’t grow on trees and things are not getting any cheaper either, and while there are plenty day-care options in Gauteng, no parent wants to send their kids to just any day care. The financial costs of an au pair are much less than private establishments, especially considering that an au pair can offer your children so much more. Furthermore, depending on what you’re looking for, our au pairs can assist you from as little as only working mornings, a few hours a week or several hours each day.

If you’re a mother to small children and are looking to get your career started again, then we at NannyMaids can help you. We are simply committed to finding the best au pairs in Gauteng for your child. To learn more about our services, au pairs, nannies and rates, make the smart choice and contact us today!
