Why host an Au Pair?How to become a host
Family and profession balance
Becoming a host family is an important decision. It is first of all, wanting to live a constructive and reciprocal intercultural exchange, but also to benefit from a better balance between family and professional life thanks to the help of an Au Pair.
Taking care of your children
This Au Pair will be a girl or boy between the ages of 18 and 30 and will speak at least one of the 3 official languages of the country. His primary motivation will be the discovery of our culture and the development of a language. As a bonus, he loves children and will take care of yours.
It’s a win win situation
If you are going to host an Au Pair for a temporary stay, he will certainly help you with some light everyday tasks, but it will also be an opportunity for him to discover new perspectives. It is clearly a win-win situation for both parties!

Before we took in an au pair, we relied on babysitters and acquaintances to look after our children, but in some cases no one was available. Having an au pair proves a much more balanced life and greater flexibility.
Recruitment is a long and tedious process. Fortunately, we can leave this burden to an agency.
