Our Education Programme.

Our mission is to provide high-quality education and care in a secure and loving home environment. Through linking loving au pairs with our tamariki and their families, we nurture cultural understanding, positive learning outcomes and life-changing experiences.

We’re committed to delivering the highest possible level of service to our customers, supporting you and your au pair every step of the way.


Our Curriculum


Our team of Programme Managers are all qualified early childhood teachers and are dedicated to supporting our au pairs, families and their children. Au Pair Link implements a high-quality programme, in line with the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum, Te Whāriki.

Te Whāriki (translated as ‘the woven mat’) supports your children’s learning and interests, as they are woven through different learning experiences, helping them to:

  • Be curious.
  • Develop their natural interests.
  • Persist with difficulty and problem-solving.
  • Express their ideas through creativity.
  • Take responsibility.


What ERO says about us


Our programmes are well-regarded by the Ministry of Education and Education Review Office (ERO) and are designed specifically for your child’s individual needs, so you’ll relish in seeing your children develop into happy, healthy and confident learners.


“A focus on high-quality care and education in children’s own homes and positive learning outcomes is highly evident.”

“The placement of educators is well considered and responsive to the needs of individual children and their families. The programme manager works positively alongside educators to provide a curriculum that effectively supports infants and toddlers.”

“The service values the importance of children learning through play. Children are introduced to a wide range of learning experiences within and outside the home. Well considered, high quality resources and regular excursions further enhance these opportunities.”

“Through the recruitment process, provision for children with additional learning needs is carefully considered. The programme manager effectively works alongside educators, families and external agencies to promote the participation and engagement of these children in the learning programme.”
