If your child is learning a foreign language, a native-speaking nanny or au pair can have an enormous impact on your child's ability to not only learn the language, but also derive enjoyment from the language.
They can provide an organic opportunity for your child to use the target language in their day-to-day life, often using vocabulary that might be missing in your child's life if his main exposure to the secondary language comes from school or daycare.
The native-speaking nanny or au pair should be someone who fits in with your family, who understands your child's needs and really loves spending time with children and teaching them new things, someone who will nurture and support your child, while helping him or her acquire fluency in the target language.
Because each family is unique, at Amazing Pairs we offer different family packages. We can put you in contact with au pairs or full-time, part-time or short term native-speaking nannies and playtime/conversation tutors who are ready to be interviewed by a great family like yours!
We will draw from our global network and our experience in recruiting candidates, to help you find the right caregiver for your family.
We are focused on your success, so we will not charge our placement fee until you have hired the candidate (or, in the case of au pairs, when the flight is booked).
Please read more about Our Process, take a look at our most popular services below, and let us know if you are looking for something different.
