The best thing of being an au pair in the Netherlands is that there is an agency which protects me, so I feel safe here. Nanny Nina is the best! My au pair agency helps me so much, starting from the first time when my host family registered me to this agency. The people are so helpful. They made clear what steps I should take preparing documents for my visa. They always updated me with my visa progress. When I arrived here, Nanny Nina also helped me with the next steps my host family and I should take care of, such as the registration for my residence permit & health insurance. I can really recommend Nanny Nina for your au pair journey.
I had a hard time at the beginning of my arrival, but luckily Nanny Nina’s agency was always there to help. Give me advice and tips. Help me to be even better. After three months in the Netherlands, I was finally able to adapt and learn new things. Get out of my comfort zone and try to be my best as an au pair.
I remember very well, when I arrived in the Netherlands I got a package from Nanny Nina, and it contained several welcome gifts for me because I had arrived in the Netherlands. I was touched and happy. Thank you for always being there, Nanny Nina team.
After nearly transferring to another family, Nanny Nina listened to my concerns and helped me to resolve the matter. Due to my cultural differences, it is hard for me to voice my concerns to my host. However, they responded quickly and efficiently to my concerns.
Fortunately, I tried to talk to my family, and we managed to work things out. As lucky as I am in being a part of the best agency, I hope that every au pair will be too!
Nanny Nina helped me understood what my responsibilities as an au pair would be, which helped put my mind at ease when I started with this whole experience. As mentioned earlier, I was afraid of the responsibility that comes along with being an au pair. Having the agency there to help guide you can really make a difference in your mindset as an au pair.
If you’re thinking about joining the au pair experience, I would definitely recommend doing so, but also bear in mind that it’s not always just fun, and if you’re like me, you will sometimes feel homesick. The great thing is that you have an agency to help you deal with all of these kinds of emotions that come along with the experience, even the amount of love you develop for your host children and family.
No! You can use our platform for free:) You can register and look for a family for free. Usually you have to pay for the flight to the country you go to, but sometimes the host family pays for the flight.

It can always happen that you don’t click. This is why you discuss a notice agreement. Usually this is 1 or 2 months. This actually almost never happens because you get to know your family beforehand. If you don’t click, we’ll go look for another family!
You can always discuss with your host family when you want to have time off and if that works with their planning. Also the weekends are usually off! You also agree about this in the contract
It depends on what you agree in the contract with your host family, you always get a by the government specified minimum pocket money and sometimes the hosts also provide a fee for travel and phone.
