What people are saying about the AuPair Essentials course
“I thought all the information was extremely relevant, very easy to understand and concise. It made me ready to step right into a family as an AuPair. I knew what to expect and how to manage if I was homesick”
“It takes a village to raise a child!” Au pairs, babysitters, teachers, parents and all caregivers, play a vital role in bringing up children so it is essential that everyone is trained and prepared for working with children”
What a wonderful course! Thank you Sitter Train for helping us settle our au pair into life in our family. We weren’t sure if we could spend the time needed to invest in teaching yet another au pair what to do but you did it for us! All we had to do was show her our timetable and certain things we liked our way!
Thank you Sitertrain for such a practical fun course. I loved how you put me in real life situations looking after a few kids at a time and unexpected things happen especially in the quizzes. It really helped me prepare for what its actually like being an AuPair.
