Au Pairs, Nannies and Child Care

These can include working in an Orphanage or Children's Home, becoming a private Au Pair, or being a Nanny for the winter season in one of the many Ski resorts. Many of the large Gap Year providers offer a childcare programme, often working with underprivileged and neglected children in the developing world. Offering care, support and stimulation to these children can have a significant impact on their lives, and is therefore one of the most worthwhile ways to spend your year out.

These placements can be paid or voluntary positions and some may require a formal qualification, although the majority don't. It's always worth checking with the provider before you commit to anything. If you're thinking of planning a Childcare Gap Year, have a look at some of the opportunities listed below. Not only could you be working in some fantastic destinations and experiencing new cultures, you can also return from your year out knowing you've made a positive contribution to children's lives.
