Parents of infants looking for childcare don’t just need an extra pair of hands. They want someone confident, capable and nurturing to attend to their baby’s needs. PROaupair’s Infant Childcare program specialises in matching Australian families with childcare providers who love babies and have the necessary training and experience to care for infants.
The childcare professionals in PROaupair’s Infant Childcare program have degrees from their home country in Germany in paediatric nursing or early childhood development or have extensive experience caring for infants. They are ideal candidates for families with infant multiples and families who may have an infant as well as older children.

- Feeding baby
