We truly believe that an au pair can make a difference.
From our own experience we know that, when done right, an au pair can make a difference in a child’s life. And the other way around. However, a year on your own abroad won’t always be easy. In fact, at times it will be very hard. but with proper guidance we will help you through the rough times. We do our best to make sure that you, together with your fellow au pairs, will love the experience of learning a new language and culture.
