What do we do for you?
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.
Au pair guidance & events
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.
Au pair training
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.
Au pair screening
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.
Au pair law & legislation
As an au pair agency, we've been given the responsibility of the Ministry of Immigration and Naturalization to ensure that all administration is in order, but also that the au pair laws and regulations are followed. That is a huge responsibility, because the regulations are complex.
This is what we do for you as an au pair agency:
- search for a suitable au pair
- screen the au pair and check references
- drawing up contracts
- check submitted documents such as salary statement and BRP
- submit the au pair application to the ministry of immigration and naturalization
- guide the au pair with evaluations
- give advice on insurance and legislation
