An au pair is an unmarried young adult aged 18 to 30 years, who has no children and travels to a foreign country for a defined period of time to live with a host family. The au pair is considered as a full member of the family during the entire stay. As such, he or she helps the family with childcare and can be asked to assume some light household tasks. In return, the host family provides free board and lodging, as well as pocket money. However, the au pair is neither a housekeeper, nor a nanny.

  • You can learn the language ( often courses are paid for ) and how to cook the local cuisine if you desire, and of course be a big brother or sister to the children in your adopted family, teaching, playing and sharing your own culture with those that will soon be your younger friends for life.

  • Becoming an Au Pair in another country is a great way to experience family life in another country. Generally our positions are for 3 – 12 months, and allow you to become part of the day to day lifestyle of a family in another country, while enjoying all the greatness that comes with spending the day with children

  • The benefits to heading abroad as an au pair, are the ability to be able to travel knowing you have a base to go back to , and the support of a family and our agency behind you.
