New Zealand Au Pair of the Year 2012 awards

For immediate release:

New Zealand Au Pair of the Year 2012 awards

New Zealand’s inaugural Au Pair of the Year awards have been established to help recognise a growing childcare sector in New Zealand.

According to the International Au Pair Association (IAPA) survey, last year New Zealand went from being the 12th to the 8th most popular country in the world for Au Pairs to go to. Cecilia Robinson, Au Pair Link’s founder and 2012 Her Businesswoman of the Year, says that the growth is due to the affordability and cultural experience that Au Pair childcare offers kiwi families.

In association with Kidspot, New Zealand’s largest parenting website, Au Pair Link is proud to announce the first ever New Zealand Au Pair of the Year award. Robinson says, “With the growth of Au Pair childcare in New Zealand, we feel that these awards are a fantastic way to recognise the amazing contribution that thousands of Au Pairs make to the everyday lives of kiwi kids and their families.”

The Kidspot New Zealand Au Pair of the Year will win domestic return airfares to Queenstown and 3 nights’ accommodation. In addition, the New Zealand Au Pair of the Year will be nominated for the IAPA Au Pair of the Year and the chance to travel to Rome to receive this international award.

The New Zealand Au Pair of the Year 2012 is open to nominations from Monday 16th of July to Sunday 12th August. To nominate an Au Pair or to read some of the amazing stories visit the Kidspot New Zealand Au Pair of the Year social page.
