about au pairs and money
has anyone ever had an ofsted approved au pair to help with childcare while training nursing at university? also do au pairs accept childcare vouchers or funding?
thank you for your question. Au pairs are allowed to accept childcare vouchers, but they should contact the relevant Childcare Voucher provider in order to register with them and to be able to receive the payments to their bank account. In the UK host families should pay their au pairs at least £70 to £85 a week pocket money. According to the UK government you can take up to £55 a week of your salary as vouchers, so you would not be able to cover the whole pocket money for your au pair with them.

Thank you for your reply this was very helpful!
That would be fine. Also, i’ve been told they’re are au pairs that don’t live with you is this correct? I only ask because if not they need there own room and also so i can plan for when i go university. i will be studying midwifery and it means different shift works that consist of days nights etc. by then my children will be 5 and 3(nearly 4) so one in school and one in nursery, meaning the au pair would have extra time to themselves while they are there.
