Surviving home office with children - thanks to an au pair

No need to be a super hero and try to handle the kids plus the job all alone. With an au pair it's possible to manage your home office working hours even while the children are at home. Find your au pair match at AuPairWorld and get the extra childcare help you need.

Hosting an au pair – What's really involved?

A young person (typically aged between 18 and 30) from an European country joins your family as a new temporary member for a defined period of time (usually from 3 - 12 months). 

  • Au pairs help with childcare and family tasks - usually for about 30 hours per week.
  • In return, au pairs get a room of their own in the family home, share meals with the family and receive a standard amount of monthly pocket money.

How much does it cost to host an au pair?

These are standard cost factors to have in mind: 

  • Room and board in your home
  • Au pair pocket money (from 280€/month)
  • Premium Membership at AuPairWorld (from 39.90€)
  • Au pair insurance (from 24.90€/month)
  • Possible contributions to the au pair's local transport costs or language course

Au pairing and hybrid work models – how does it work?

An au pair can become a key part of the new mix. As you move between home-office work and in-person office time, the au pair can be there to fill in for both situations - for times when you are in the office, but also to free your back when you're working at home.
