DUTIES OF MOTHERS HELP:
They are expected to be at home looking after children normally whilst the mother is at work, or helping the mother in a busy household. They are asked to keep a home clean, maybe do some cooking and shopping. Be responsible for laundry and ironing, etc. They generally work between 8-10 hours per day. Our Mother’s Helps are aged 20+ and must have previous childcare experience. Depending on their experience, they may be able to have sole charge of toddlers and school-aged
children. As they are generally not formally qualified in childcare, this is at the discretion of the parents. The wage of a Mother’s Help varies a great deal on age, experience, ability to drive, etc. but we recommend a starting figure of £150.00 per week after tax. We do not expect our Families to pay for their Au Pairs/Mother’s Helps flights to this country.
Au Pair/Mother’s Help should be registered with the Host Family Doctor when they arrive. If the Host Family have a problem with this, they can telephone the Agency for advise.
If an Au Pair/Mother’s Helpare required to look after the children for longer periods during the school holidays, the families should pay extra pocket money. Please telephone the Agency for guidance.
If an Au Pair/Mother’s Help asked to accompany a Host Family on their holiday, the normal pocket money should be paid each week.
The Agency arranges outings and get-togethers, these may be addressed to you, we would request that you pass these immediately to your Au Pair/Mother’s Help.
We give support to both you and your Au Pair/Mother’s Help throughout their stay.
All the above are guidelines. A successful relationship between an Au Pair/Mother’s Help and the Host Family depends on a willingness on both parts to understand the needs of each other.
