GAPI - German Au Pairs for Ireland



What is an au pair?


Au Pair means "in exchange". The Au Pair program is primarily a cultural exchange where the au pair stays with a family in a foreign country to learn the language and to gain knowledge about customs and culture. In exchange for being able to stay with the family, the au pair helps with the children and will also do light housework. You can not expect a fully trained childminder. But an au pair has babysitting experience.

What do I get for my money?

The fee includes a reasonable background check of the au pair.
There will be support for you and the au pair.
We provide a network for the au pair and organise an intensive intercultural structured program for the au pairs.
