An au pair for your family
Become a host family and enjoy the modern solution for better family management. An au pair brings you highly flexible childcare in your home and a one-of-a-kind cultural cooperation.
A young person (typically aged between 18 and 30) from a foreign country joins your family and is integrated as a full-fledged member of the family team for a defined period of time (usually from 3 - 12 months). The au pair helps with childcare and family tasks while learning the language of the host country and benefiting from cultural exchange.
An au pair receives free board and lodging in your home as a fully integrated family member with his or her own room. In addition, au pairs receive a customary amount of pocket money that varies from country to country and is typically between 260 and 450 EUR per month (approximate figures). Detailed information on these and other au pairing costs in specific countries can be found in our section Info Host Countries.
