The Ethos of the Program As an au pair you join your host family, live with them, an
"My experience so far has been really good, my host parents are very accommodating and make me feel quite at home. As with every job there are ups and downs, but mostly ups, moving to the other side of the world has been exciting, scary, fulfilling and whatever other emotion you could think of. I have met so many amazing people and the decision to come over here and work as an au pair is by far one of the best decisions I've ever made."
"Smartaupairs were an absolutely amazing pairs agency! They checked in on me every few weeks via email and phone calls. Whenever I emailed them they were very quick to respond and they were really helpful. They arranged meet ups with other au pairs and also had a Facebook group where you could get in contact with au pairs all over London/England. My year in London was fantastic many thanks to Smartaupairs!!"
"I am in England since the end of August and I really love England! But I had to change the host family and it was not so easy to deal with that kind of experience. Nevertheless, I had great support from the smartaupairs team and they took my problem serious. They sent me new family applications very soon and I found the perfect family for me! My new family is very nice and I have a very good relationship with my host mum and a good one with the kids :) It is amazing how quick you improve your English skills while being abroad. I am really looking forward to the next months!"
"I live in Redhill (Surrey) now for one month and I really like it here ! The area is surrounded by beautiful parks, where you can play always with your hostchildren and you can easily take the train to London, which will take 20min. My hostfamily helped me a lot to settle in and I already feel that I am a part of the family. My hostkids are lovely boys. You learn every day something new as an Au pair! First of all you improve your English just by talking it all the time and then you learn to be very patient with the children and how to handle difficult situations. I take part in a language course at a local College twice a week. I've met some of my friends there. Most of them are local Au pairs,too. Furthermore I would suggest every Au pair to check Facebook to find local Au pair groups. You can just join them and take part at their weekly meeting :) I am really happy that I have made the decision to become an Au pair and very lucky to have such a friendly hostfamily ! "
"Smartaupairs is an excellent au pair agency - very well-organised and supportive, they help you with everything and make the whole process of finding a family quite easy as they give you tips for your application and do their best to find the perfect family for you. After arriving in your host family they do regularly check on you to make sure you are alright. Thanks to Smartaupairs I am having a great time in London! :)"
