Considering an au pair for the first time?
F.A.Q. - Considering an au pair for the first time?
We are currently getting a lot of questions from families considering an au pair for the first time. The economic situation has made many families re-think their childrens’ education and childcare options for after school or families with younger children are calculating the cost of the nursery or the nanny versus cheaper options such as an au pair.
To make sure we cater for ‘first timers’ the best possible way, we have answered some of the questions we are asked most frequently. We have also designed a special appendix to our au pair handbook guide to help first time host families with even more detailed information.
