Childcare costs in Melbourne are on the rise, with parents currently forking out $141 per day, per child on average. Such fees are unaffordable for many working families but OZiAU-PAIR offers a cost-effective solution that will assist you and your family.
OZiAU-PAIR is a professional au-pair and demi-pair provider based in Melbourne. OZiAU-PAIR's demi-pairs are young adults (aged 19 to 30), who are trained in Basic Early Childhood Education and First Aid.
They have an elementary or intermediate level of English and have come to Australia either on a Working Holiday visa or for study purposes.
They are searching for local families who are willing to host them by providing accommodation and full board. In return, they will perform childcare and simple house duties. No money is exchanged between demi-pair and the family.
OZiAU-PAIR is a platform which links demi-pairs with local families in Melbourne. They have a strict selection process and all demi-pairs must have a valid Working with Children card.
Most of OZiAU-PAIR's demi pairs are from Japan and surrounding countries. The selected demi-pairs receive training before living with their host family. Demi-pairs typically work 15-20 hours per week with two days off on a three-month contract.
There are many benefits of a Japanese demi-pair. It is a great opportunity for the whole family to learn about a rich and diverse culture and language.
Japanese culture emphasises harmony, calm and a gentle way of life, which is more dominant when one comes in contact with children. Plus with an extra hand at home, the family's work and home life will become more balanced.
OZiAU-PAIR will find a demi-pair that will suit your family's needs and offer personalised support and assistance throughout the search, hire and engagement of a demi-pair.
