AU PAIR CORK

The European Au Pair Agency offer a dedicated au pair Cork service for families who are looking to benefit from flexible childcare solutions.

Welcoming an au pair into your family home will bring great benefits to the lives of you and your children as well as giving au pairs from across Europe the chance to discover Ireland and improve their language skills.

We work closely with families in Cork to find suitable au pairs from European countries such as Austria, France, Germany, Portugal, Spain and Sweden.

Families will enjoy the following benefits:

Assisting with homework

Bringing children to their school

Children's laundry

Helping children get ready for school

Light house cleaning duties

Play and activities

Our team understand the importance of ensuring both au pairs and families enjoy a positive experience during their respective homestays and that both will mutually benefit from the experience.

Finding a young woman or man who will be able to build a strong rapport with your children is something we take very seriously to ensure their integration into your family life is as seamless as possible.

The au pair Cork placement experience enables individuals from all over Europe to improve their language skills in an English-speaking country, explore Ireland and assist their assigned families with day-to-day childcare needs.
