Au Pair New Zealand
Au Pair New Zealand

Live with a host family, care for children, and experience New Zealand!

As an au pair in New Zealand, you’ll live with a vetted host family for 6 or 12 months, care for your host children for up to 45 hours per week, and experience New Zealand as a local. You’ll receive a stipend, private bedroom, and meals. This intercultural experience is a great way for U.S. citizens to help others and gain insight into Kiwi culture with the safety and support of a program.
