Awesome and Amazing!???? I’d say I had an awesome and wonderful experience because the team is composed of amazing people. They were in constant communication with me from the very beginning until now that I’ve arrived here in the Netherlands. Michelle was just so helpful in everything and so with Erin and Ritsya. Everything just flows smoothly with the process and assures you with what’s going to happen next. Thank you Nanny Nina!
Erin, you were the most supportive person throughout the whole process. Your calmness, through evaluation of situations, passion for what you do and your genuine concern for the families you handle is super appreciated. It was an amazing experience working throughout the process and I loved how you pushed to get things done and kept me updated through the whole process – though it was long, you tried all you could including offering me temporary help. I will be forever grateful.
You are a great asset – evidence by how many other Netflix families you have assisted and they have nothing but praise for you.
I hope we get to meet again and wish you the very best in your future endeavours.
Hele fijne ervaring met de dames van Nanny Nina. Veel contact gehad met Erin supertevreden en altijd klaar om onze vragen te beantwoorden en ons bij te staan in het hele proces!
Nanny Nina is zeer behulpzaam geweest met het plaatsen van onze fantastische au pair uit Thailand. Ondanks de onzekere tijd die de lockdown in 2020 met zich meebracht en de wachttijd van de IND is het toch gelukt. De medewerkers zijn zeer prettig, professioneel en toch laagdrempelig in de communicatie. Ik kan Nanny Nina aanraden!!!
An au pair is between 19-30 years old and comes from another country. He/she comes and lives at your place and helps you take care of your kids and the household. First and foremost you need to see it as a cultural exchange and as a wonderful experience for your kids. Secondly, it’s a flexible and affordable way of daycare.
They are entitled to an allowance and board & lodging. Allowance is legally set at different amounts per country. For example in the Netherlands it has to be a minimum of €300 and a maximum of €340 a month, but in Belgium the minimum is €450 a month with no fixed maximum amount.
Aside from these costs an au pair is entitled to a minimum of 2 days off per week and 2 weeks of paid vacation if he/she stays with your family for a year.
An au pair can work a maximum of 30 hours per week, which you discuss together.
An au pair can stay for one year in the Netherlands. If he/she is returning home, we’d love to help you find someone new!
The room needs to have daylight and a window that can open and close. It has to private, heated if needed and there needs to be enough lighting. Oh, and wifi of course! Make your au pair feel at home, it’s pretty exciting for her as well.
We make sure we have all the right contracts, screen the au pair, apply for a visa at the IND and best of all – we make sure your au pair feels at home & organize events for him/her.
What kind of au pairs do we select? We choose our au pairs very carefully. We only want reliable, sparkly people who really love and adore children.
We guide you and your au pair in every step, so you don’t have to worry about a thing. We get in touch with your au pair and make sure we have all the right documents for the IND.
We screen her carefully and give advice when needed. Before your au pair arrives, she will get an information box with practical tips to feel right at home.
Our au pair academy has great language courses to help your au pair get to know our culture. We check in by sending an app or call and we’re always available for any questions your might have.
We screen your au pair and make sure you and your au pair comply with all au pair laws and regulations. We also make sure that you and your family have a carefree and pleasant au pair year and that your au pair has a great time! We do this with love (& work late hours if we have to) because we really love our work.
We think it’s so important that your au pair gets help and guidance to feel at home. That’s why we organize 6 au pair events every year. Think, for example, of ice skating in Amsterdam at Christmas, celebrating Sinterklaas evening, boat trips in Haarlem and high tea in picturesque locations.
We are the only au pair agency that offers our au pairs access to our own in-house au pair academy. It provides all kinds of interesting training courses on how to “survive” in the Netherlands. You will also find courses on self-development, communication and pedagogical development.
Hosting an au pair is a choice that has a major impact on your life, and that of your children. That is why we make sure that you have a perfect match with your au pair. As a family, you can also look for an au pair yourself, but even then we screen the au pair according to our strict guidelines and check whether it is a good fit. It sometimes happens that we advise you to choose another au pair after the screening because we hear alarm bells going off.
We have a lot of experience with screening and know what questions to ask to prevent the au pair from coming to the Netherlands with wrong reasons or expectations. We also test whether he or she is exactly what you’re looking for in terms of standards and values, character and experience. We sincerely believe that investing a little more time in advance and choosing the right au pair candidate can avoid a lot of time and problems.
