Nannies Abroad Awards the first full scholarship to a Kiwi to be an Au Pair in China.

We are happy to announce the first full scholarship awarded to a Kiwi recipient to be an Au Pair in China with Nannies Abroad.

Nannies Abroad, is operated by International Working Holidays (IWH). Nannies Abroad was created in 1994 with the sole purpose of finding Kiwis pre-arranged nanny placements whereby families had been screened to ensure the safety of the applicants as well as offer them full back up & support. IWH was later created to include other overseas programmes for New Zealanders such as Camp America, working holiday programmes and volunteer projects.  


Isobell Tregoweth studied at the Ashton Warner Nanny Academy in Auckland will be leaving this year to live with a host family in China as she was awarded a scholarship worth approximately NZ$1,500. 



International Working Holidays & Nannies Abroad OE Advisor Shelby Cooper visited the Ashton Warner Academy to introduce the graduating class about the opportunities abroad which they would be more than qualified for. The focus of the presentation is on Au Pair in America which is the most popular programme for kiwis. Other countries the girls can nanny or au pair in include the UK, Italy, Spain, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Australia & China. China tends to attract less attention however.

Au pair means "on par" or "equal to" the family. They are welcomed as another member of the family and in exchange for looking after the children during the week they are given their own room, meals, time off and are introduced to a new culture.

The programme in China is unique as families want au pairs to look after and speak English with the children up to 30 hours a week. A local coordinator is on call for the au pairs and visits the families regularly to monitor how the au pairs and families are getting on. The au pairs are networked together so they can explore and experience the culture together during time off. They also attend Chinese language and culture lessons, they are required to attend lessons for at least 60 hours over a 3 month period.

In order to encourage more kiwis applicants to discover the Chinese culture, a limited amount of scholarships are available for Nannies Abroad. The candidates need to submit an application with Nannies Abroad and supporting letters for why they should be awarded the scholarship.

The scholarship includes return flights to China, insurance (medical, travel & liability), programme fees, transfers, orientation, sponsorship for a cultural exchange visa (worth approximately NZ$1,500).

"I was confident in Isobell's application for the scholarship as we've had great success from girls who have done our programmes from the Ashton Warner Academy in the past." - Shelby.

Isobell has told a few of her friends that she is going to China who responded: "why on earth would you want to go there?" Isobell thinks that kiwis probably just misunderstand or don't have enough knowledge about the country or culture.

"I'm really looking forward to sharing my journey." - Isobell.

Keep a look out for updates on Isobell's journey as an au pair in China.
