I never understood why Kurt Busch was pulled from the #2. I still think Ragan has potential to show signs of life.

He wasn't really pushed from the 2. All they did was change the car paint scheme and add a 2.

I do agree that it's odd that they would change his number though. Especially, to give it to an, as of yet, unproven driver.

WHAT IS AN AU PAIR?(for au pairs going overseas)

We are specialist in Au Pairs Australia and our agency can help with finding affordable and flexible nanny-style childcare to help busy parents all over Australia.

Host families and candidates from Australia can benefit from our knowledge and expertise and enjoy cultural childcare. Our unmatched all-inclusive service is ideal.

A family au pair is a popular choice for active families who need a bit of extra help with childcare, after school care, help with homework, meal preparation and cooking, school runs, bath time, baby-sitting and light housework.

In many modern families mum now also works, making work-life balance challenging at times. Parents working shifts and single parent families can relax in the knowledge that the au pair can provide flexible live-in childcare. A family au pair, sometimes also called mom’s help or nanny, provides the ideal live-in childcare solution and our au pair agency can find the ideal au pair for your family.

An au pair nanny is an educated young person who would like to improve their language skills further and experience the local culture. They become part of family life and help out with daily tasks involving the children.

Most family au pairs stay with their host family for 6 months and are able to provide real support for the host family. They can be on duty for 25-30 hours and may attend language classes in their free time and often use their weekends to go sightseeing and meet up with friends. We offer placements throughout Australia including Au Pairs in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth.

Our au pair agency has years of experience of placing top European au pairs, which means that we can offer you and your family access to the finest candidates. We place au pairs all over Australia.

We are known for placing candidates with strong language skills and a genuine interest in children, looking for a real cultural learning experience and committed to providing a reliable extra pair of hands for the host family.

We will also facilitate Australian candidates wishing to travel to UK, USA, Canada & Europe.

Easy online registration supported by efficient personal service from an au pair expert means most host families start interviewing within days from registering with us for help finding an au pair. We provide extensive FREE extras to help you such as interview guide, contract template, handbook guide and welcome pack for you and your au pair.

Our MD and founder, a well-travelled business mum, Nicole, 45, speaks four languages and has, prior to managing the au pair agencies, spent 15 years travelling the world as a Manager in the travel industry with companies such as Hilton hotels, First Choice Holidays, Airmiles and P&O.

Nicole, who moved to England in 1993 from her native Holland, has always been passionate about encouraging young people to broaden their horizons and to improve their language skills. In 2009 she moved to Australia for another ‘cultural adventure’.

With two children and husband with an equally demanding career, childcare has always been vital to help balance the demands of juggling family and work. A family au pair was ideal as it gave the children early exposure to cultural exchange.

Her own au pair hosting experiences combined with her career in travel marketing and passion for languages inspired her to set up Smart Au Pairs. The benefits of affordable and flexible live-in childcare continue to motivate her to recommend more families all over Australia to embrace the au pair experience.

The team at our Au Pair Agency is split between our offices in the UK and Australia. We are all ex-pats, some of us speak several foreign languages; we appreciate the advantages of a gapyear abroad. We want you to benefit from our expertise and passion for cultural exchange and the au pair experience. Your satisfaction with our service and with the au pair program is our priority and our daily ambition.
