About us

We find the perfect match for your family


We have two missions: one for our families, one for our candidates.

At AU PAIRIN' Cape Town we understand that being a parent can be challenging at the best of times.

Our mission is to bring you an affordable, personalised and tailored placement service. Whether it's a nanny, au pair, tutor or home-based caregiver, we take time to understand your family's needs. We have a dual commitment to your family and the candidate we place with you.

All our candidates are trained, experienced and must abide by our values and code of conduct at all times. We only consider the top applicants for positions.

We are passionate about childcare and love building and maintaining warm relationships with our team and families. We are based in Cape Town and enjoy meeting our clients for consultations during the placement process. Please feel free to get in touch, especially if it's your first time hiring an au pair or nanny.

Values we expect our candidates
to live by every day.

Respectful in all conversations and dealings with families
Reliable and pragmatic in our approach
Responsible and accountable for our duties
Compassionate in everything we do, every day
