The Au Pair program is very well known and common in the Netherlands. While babysitting is one of the typical ways Dutch Au Pairs gain childcare experience, internships at daycares, nurseries and hospitals are also common.
Becky is a first time Host Mom with Go Au Pair who welcomed her Au Pair, Anja, from the Netherlands into her home several months ago.
"Anja assimilated into our family so very easily. She immediately became a part of our family. She really has become another member of our family. The most important piece was that she immediately assimilated into our children's lives and she did."
"We really had very few cultural differences. As many know, most European countries are very similar in culture to the U.S."
"Oh absolutely! We would definitely choose another Au Pair from the Netherlands. She has been great and we look forward to spending the next months with her. Our children absolutely love her!"
