Demi Pair

Demi Pair

 A Demi Pair is an excellent option for families requiring after school help, but fewer hours.

This is the perfect choice for those who only require a minimum of help in the home, yet all the advantages of having someone familiar around who can assist when needed.   Generally the placements are for stays of between 3 -  6 months.

Our Demi Pairs will be registered at a full-time language class in London, Monday to Friday, (up to 20 hours per week)  and families must be aware that it is essential that the candidate is permitted to attend his/her class even if the child/children are unwell or on holiday themselves from school.

The guidelines for demi-pair are:

  • The demi pair will help in the home for up to 15 hours per week. She will assist in the mornings to get the children ready and she will be available to help when they come back from school or kindergarden. She will expect to be on duty for 3 hours per day.
  • The family pays NO pocket money, but needs to provide all meals and private accommodation.
  • The family should cover the expense (oyster card) for transportation to and from language classes, which could be between £25 - £50 per week depending on location of family's home.
