Au Pair Sanne with Host Kids

Our au pair gap year program is for young Australians wanting to be an au pair overseas.

We guarantee you an au pair position and accommodation before you travel and agency support before and during your au pair experience.

Here are the TOP TEN reasons why we think taking a smartgapyear is simply AMAZING

  • GUARANTEE – job & accommodation sorted before you go!
  • TRAVEL – because you earn as you go, you can spend your weekends exploring the highlights of Europe using cheap flights. Many au pairs also get to travel with their host family on holidays!
  • MONEY – come back from travelling without being broke!
  • NEW FRIENDS – make new friends and learn about yourself in the same time, many au pairs make ‘friends for life’ during their gap year.
  • AWESOME MEMORIES – as any adult what was the most memorable year of their life, they are likely to say their gap-year; scores higher than being in love
  • NEW PLACES & CULTURE – see your new place as a local, not a tourist.
  • CHILDREN – you get to do ‘kids-stuff’ like going to the zoo, kick a ball in the park and make a tent in the lounge!
  • YET IT’S MORE THAN CHILDCARE – no need to be ‘supernanny’ or choose a career in childcare, just be a big sister and part of the family!
  • LIFE SKILLS – from navigating local transport to time management & cooking! And maybe a new language too!
  • CAREER – Au pair experience will look great on your CV whatever you chose for your future!
