What is an Au pair?
The term "au pair" derives from French and means "reciprocity". An au pair programme is also based on the idea of reciprocity. As an au pair abroad, it is your job to take care of your host family's children during your contractual working hours and perform light household chores. In return, the family will provide you with free meals, free accommodation and weekly spending money. Aside from your duties as an au pair, you will have the opportunity to discover your host country, meet friends and try out new things.
Gathering international experience as an au pair is different from traveling to a country as a tourist. An au pair programme takes much longer than an ordinary trip. You will also get to "look behind the scenes" and discover what everyday life really feels like. During your au pair year, you will speak the language of your host country every day and will be able to become fluent rather quickly. Compared to a regular holiday, your experience as an au pair will be much more intense and in depth.
However, this does not mean that you won't be able to be a tourist in your spare time! You still have the chance to travel, either during your free weekends or holidays or during your travel month at the end of your au pair experience! Find out more about your numerous opportunities to discover the country of your choice!
Playing, cooking, helping with homework, reading aloud, doing crafts...? As an au pair you take on many tasks and duties in your everyday life. Together with your host parents, you will be in charge of the kids and become an integral part of the family. Find out what your life as an au pair could look like.
We as an agency can give you plenty of information on what it means to be an au pair. However, what a year abroad as an au pair really looks like can be shown best by those who have experienced it. Blogs, vlogs and testimonials of our participants will give you a very close insight.
