Ask any parent what they are looking for in an ideal childcare provider and the answer will be the same. A well-trained professional who loves children, can work flexible hours and fits into the family’s budget. Many families have discovered that this ideal childcare provider exists – in the form of a live- in childcare professional.

PROaupair specialises in providing professional care providers - highly experienced childcare professionals with degrees and training from their home country in Germany. Our childcare professionals have experience from their home country as occupational and physical therapy assistants, nursing, special needs education, and early childhood education and preschool teaching. PROaupair is the only agency with a focus on families with children with special needs.

Our highly personalised placement process helps to ensure that each host family finds the right professional carer for their needs. Unlike most agencies, we hand-select our professional care providers, meeting each one in person to ensure they meet our high standards for quality, professionalism and training. Our childcare professionals are live-in therapy assistants or early childhood educators – with an international flair!

All of PROaupair’s professional care providers are recruited directly through our network of European universities, vocational training schools, and hospitals – as well as through referrals from organisations like the German Red Cross. PROaupair’s childcare professionals are excited about the opportunity to live and work in Australia where they can gain international work experience in their career while also learning about the local culture.

Each of our programs includes up to 40 hours per week of live-in childcare from an English-speaking care provider. Program pricing is the same no matter how many children are in one family. PROaupair manages all the details – from visa sponsorship to insurance to support – and we even offer a “pay-as-you-go” payment option.

PROaupair understand that childcare requirements differ from family to family, which is why we have three professional childcare programs: Special Needs Childcare, Infant Childcare, and Childcare Ages 2+.
