Host Family's Requirements
Becoming a host family is a stimulating, rewarding multicultural experience. It will be an enriching experience for you and your kids, a time of growth for your kids who will have the opportunity to get to know, appreciate and respect a different culture while re-discovering their own traditions.
If you want to embark on this adventure, you absolutely need to have: an open mind, a sense of hospitality, a feeling of trust, strong committment and a great deal of patience.
Hosting an au pair is not just about responsibilities. It also involves many practical advantages besides giving your children the chance to learn a new language. Au pairs take care of your children, help you with the housekeeping, can babysit and so on.. Au pairs can really be a valid help in your daily life..
- You have at least one child under the age of 18 for the Au Pair to take care of.
- You have a room for the Au Pair available at the family’s place.
- You must give the Au Pair some time off in order for her/him to attend a language class .
- You have a different nationality form the Au Pair's one.
Fees for the Host family from abroad

Only upon the payment of the fee, the family wil be entitled to be assisted by our agency, For late payments beyond the set deadline, no assistance will be provided by us and the au pair will be hosted by another family.
