Hi guys i am from Perth and i am a mother of a 11 month old and am very skeptical about childcare centres!

Aupairs instead of childcare! For room and board and family life they look after your kids for a small wage (I have offered one less than what a childcare centre would expect and i am still getting bits as a lot of them would rather get less money and get the experience!)

I am registered with www.newaupair.com and have found some great people and am communicating two great candidates who are not expecting more than $50-$100 a week!!

You have to pay around $50aus to get the email addresses but that gives you 30days access to any email address on the system!

If you have any questions regarding au pairs, i will try and impart with my limited knwledge! my email addy is [email protected]

It seems great and a lot of people want to go to NZ or Aus or even stay in their own country!
