Extra hand: Having a Genki au pair is like having an extra hand in the house or a 'mother's helper'. She will job share the basic duties that is usually just your job. She can help with light housework, preparing meals, bath and bed time, getting ready for school (if you also have older children) and many other tasks. She gives you peace of mind as a busy parent. Having another adult in your home eliminates the stress of pick-up and drop-off at day care and the hassle of patching together coverage from babysitters or family members.
Time and quality of life: it gives you more time to do the things you want to do-spend more time with your children, spend more time with your partner, take a trip to the shops without kids etc.
Cost effective childcare: Childcare centres in Australia are now charging between $80-$120 a day per child! Your child also gets to stay in the comfort of their own home.In-home childcare is recommended by paediatricians as the healthiest childcare option.
Cultural exchange: Your family are introduced to other cultures and lifestyles . Children can benefit from learning about a new culture and language. Children also thrive as a result of the full attention offered by our au pairs, who serve as an extension of the family and enjoy focusing on your child’s personal learning and growth. They also love the extra attention they get from their parents.
