What will you do as an au pair?

Cultural exchange

Mostly your visit abroad is seen as a cultural exchange, but because you get to live with a family ‘for free’ you’d also help with taking care of the kids and the household.

During your stay

You help your host family with:

  • getting the kids ready for school
  • picking the kids up & taking them to after school activities
  • help with homework
  • help with domestic work
  • cooking/ getting groceries

Time to yourself

You have about 30 work hours per week, this depends on the legislation of the country you’d wish to visit. In the time you don’t work, you’re free to discover the culture, people and country. Doing fun things with other au pairs will be the highlight of your stay!

Questions of other au pairs

Why Nanny Nina and not some other agency?

Okay, we don’t like to brag or anything, but we often hear that we are super involved and know what’s up with the legislation laws. It’s an exciting adventure and we guide you in every step.

What if I want to leave my host family?

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!

What is my allowance as an au pair?

It differs between countries what you get. In the Netherlands this is legally set to 300-340 euros per month. In other countries it’s sometimes higher or lower, you can google the country which you’d like to visit and look it up.

Heb ik recht op vakantie?

Yes, you get 2 weeks of paid leave. You can discuss with your host family when you want to have time off and if that works with their planning.
