Au Pair Whiz is the programme for professional au pairs. Au pairs eligible for this programme must have a diploma or degree in Early Childhood Education and have worked full time for 6 months with children under 5 OR must have worked for at least 12 months full time with children under the age of 5, e.g. as a nanny. Since they are better qualified, they are paid more. However, the host family's expectations are usually higher.
