Students on this programme study English in the morning for 15 hours a week, and learn childcare practices with their host family in the afternoons, evenings and the weekend for 15 hours a week. Students will typically help the family with childcare, meal preparation, light housework (laundry, dishes, vacuuming etc.), school pickups and drop off. There are five childcare assignments to complete in order to receive a certificate. Some students with a work visa may be able to be paid for additional hours. No fee is payable for accommodation or for meals as the students are required to live in the family home. Possible criteria: Pre-intermediate level of English (IELTS 5.0), Minimum age 18; Visitor, Working Holiday or Student Visa; completed application including a letter of introduction; police check. Outcome: International experience in a childcare position; NZ Child First Aid Certificate; NZQA Approved English and Demi-Pair Certificate; Ongoing support and advice throughout the programme from the Demi-Pair Coordinator.
