We offer our Au Pairs the opportunity to participate in several Au Pair events throughout the year. We announce all Au Pair events via our Facebook page and email. These excursions or meetings welcome all our Au Pairs registered with Au Pair International. Our Au Pairs have the opportunity to attend approximately five of these events per year, absolutely free of charge. This way all our Au Pairs can enjoy the opportunities we present to them. We hope to see more and more of our registered Au Pairs at our events.

Welcome meeting
Three times a year we offer a Welcome meeting to our new au pairs (also free of charge). During this day we will discuss several topics in a fun and interactive way, such as communication with the host family, giving and receiving feedback, taking care of host children and fun children’s activities. We will discuss the daily life and culture in the Netherlands. We will also have workshops, sketches and presentations including video’s. Last but not least: we will have a First Aid presentation – specifically for babies and children by a professional company.  The Welcome meeting will give your au pair a great kick start to their au pair year, and they will get to know a lot of other new au pairs!


The excursions can range from visiting the Keukenhof, a castle, a museum, beach activities or a cozy afternoon bowling. Every excursion is kicked off with an icebreaker game with all the Au Pairs attending, so that they can get better acquainted. This will help the Au Pairs bond and form new friendships for the rest of their year!
