As we draw nearer to the Brexit date, as a precautionary measure, the British Au Pair Agencies Association are recommending all au pairs entering the UK must carry with them:

At The Little Au Pair Agency we offer friendly and personalised support as you search for the right Au Pair for your family. The perfect choice for families looking for peace of mind and support throughout their Au Pair search and selection process.

We work with carefully selected European Partners to find the best Au Pair candidates, helping to reduce the amount of time you spend shortlisting applicants. We only ever send you details of screened candidates who meet your family’s needs.

The Little Au Pair Agency is a small family run agency based in South East London. Whilst we do  place Au Pairs throughout the UK, the majority of our host families are based in London and the South East of England. We only work with a small number of Host Families which means we offer a friendly service tailored to your childcare needs. We are passionate about helping busy families with their Au Pair search, and with first hand experience of being a Host Family can help answer your questions along the way.

We are a full member of the British Au Pair Agencies Association and comply with BAPAA Au Pair programme guidelines.61273 BAPAA Logo Redesign 2015 v04

Our website provides lots of information about hosting Au Pairs and more about us but we understand, particularly for first time Host Families, it can be easier to talk with someone. For an informal chat, please call us on 020 8462 6041.

We look forward to hearing from you and hope to be able to help with your childcare search.

Why an Au Pair?

The British Au Pair Agencies Association are raising concerns about the future of the au pair programme post Brexit as a result of a lack of government support for au pair visas for European au pairs ☹️The Future of Youth Mobility/Au Pairs?
There is a great contradiction when it comes to the assurances made to the British Au Pair Agencies Association (BAPAA) by numerous UK ministers v. actual actions taken by the ministers to secure the future of au pair program/youth mobility in England.
To directly quote the Minister for Future Borders and Immigration, Kevin Foster: "Looking to the future, we have indicated our desire to negotiate a youth mobility arrangement with the EU or with individual countries within it if a collective agreement is not possible."
Despite the above, BAPAA's recent communication with the EU commission regretfully confirmed that the UK "did not put forward proposals for future mobility arrangements in its negotiation directives nor in its draft proposals for an agreement"
The year of 2020 is rapidly drawing to a close, and the thousands of families relying on au pair childcare help in order to work in the UK, have no clarity over how they will be able to manage their childcare come 2021!
It is about time for the UK government to end the empty promises - real action and steps must be taken towards securing the youth mobility program for EU nationals!

As you will be aware, we are currently facing an exceptional and unprecedented set of circumstances with the COVID-19 virus. Understandably many of you will have questions and concerns. We recommend everyone monitors updates from both the UK and au pairs’ home governments closely and follows their advice. We are sure host families and au pairs will already be talking about the situation together, do keep those conversations going in light of the ever changing circumstances to continue to discuss the options available and find the best solution for you both. We hope you and your family and friends stay safe and healthy during this worrying time, and we look forward to life getting back to normal. ... See MoreSee Less
