Founder


Strong values and knowing the importance of family

Having come from a large, close family I know the importance of unconditional love, happiness and laughter. I have had the opportunity to work with children over the last 10 years both Au Pairing and facilitating children with and without special needs.

Seeing the growth and development of each child, helping them unlock their unique potential is my most rewarding aspect of working with children.

I completed my Honors degree in Psychology and furthered my education with a play therapy course, where I volunteered as a play therapist with Kids Voices. I later joined an Internship program at Island Dolphin Care, in Florida where I witnessed amazing results with their dolphin assisted therapy program with children with special needs and medical concerns.

I have Au Paired both locally and internationally and the joy and experience this brought me, has driven me in the career path of wanting to assist children and families as well as Au Pairs, special needs Au Pairs and facilitators in finding the perfect match. I have seen first hand that you don’t just become another employee, you become part of the family.

 


Cayla van Vugt

Senior Au Pair Placement Manager


I have traveled, explored and worked with people of all ages all over the world. This has taught me the unique characters each individual holds.

Through my years and love for Au Pairing as well as working at Iroquois Springs Summer Camp in America, New York, I learnt the importance of understanding each and every child’s unique qualities and their needs.

Coming form the same large, close and loving Family as Ashleigh – we both hold the same values of honesty, Loyalty and Commitment and know the importance of unconditional love and how when you become an Au Pair you become part of a Family.

For us at Au Pairs & Beyond we want to bring you these Family values we hold and assist you in finding the perfect placement or perfect Au Pair for your Family.
