We provide live-in au pairs, parents' help and housekeepers across Ireland and the UK.

Are you looking for a more flexible childcare option? Have you been struggling to find wraparound care that works for your family’s specific needs? Do you need some more support with your children and around the house?

Life can be complicated, especially with young children. We understand that your working patterns or personal circumstances might need a bit more support than standard after-school care can provide. Rather than patchworking together a series of fixes that still leave you scrabbling for help when your child gets sick or an important meeting comes up, let us help you find a single, perfectly matched solution to your problem.

Whether you’re looking for an au pair, or some extra support from a parents' help, we will work with you to establish exactly what you need, source the best applicants for your criteria and set up the final placement.

If the house is where you need more help, then we can also connect you with live-in housekeepers to suit all requirements.

We have developed an international personal network which ensures that many of our female Au Pairs and UK families come to us by
personal recommendation. It is also possible to place UK based female and male Au Pairs and mothers helps (all of whom are based in the UK)
with families. We also have extensive links with partner agencies across Europe. The services offered after an Au Pair is placed include customer
support as well as pre-placement services.
