host family requirements.

Your Requirements


World-class childcare right in the heart of your home. Using an agency like Au Pair Link means our families have the peace of mind that they will be well-supported throughout the process.

In addition to your general employer responsibilities, we have developed a set of minimum requirements host families must meet to qualify for our programmes.


What do you need to do?


  • Provide your au pair with a private bedroom, with suitable bathroom access, and food.
  • Sign an Individual Employment Agreement between you and your au pair.
  • Comply with our Health and Safety requirements
  • Comply with all relevant New Zealand tax and employment law obligations.
  • Complete a police background check before your first au pair placement and every 2 years after.
  • Pay your au pair in accordance with our wage guidelines
  • Provide your au pair access to a vehicle for work and personal use, if public transport is limited. Any vehicle your au pair drives must be roadworthy and have a current Warrant of Fitness, registration and airbags.
  • Agree to and follow our host family terms and conditions.
