Au pair events

We feel it is important to make the exchange program complete and special for the au pair as well. This is why we have a wide range of events and courses for au pairs.


Each year we offer our au pairs the opportunity to participate in various au pair excursions and meetings. We announce the au pair events via Social Media and by e-mail. Au pairs who are registered with our agency can participate in an event free of charge.

The events are well attended, generally around 100 participants attend. Plenty of opportunities to make new friends!


Our introductory course 'Dutch for au pairs' is specially tailored for participants in the au pair program in the Netherlands. In this compact course, which includes two lessons on location and eight online lessons, the au pair is taken along an unique story: the journey of an au pair. 

Read more about our Dutch course in our brochure. 


Our excursions vary from a visit to a castle, the Keukenhof, a city trip, a museum, activities on the beach or an afternoon of bowling. We start each excursion with an introductory game to break the ice. After all, the goal is that the au pairs get to know each other and stay in touch afterwards! Take a look at our Social Media for photos and experiences!

Welcome meetings​

For au pairs who have just arrived in the Netherlands, we organize a free 'Welcome meeting' app. three times a year. During this day we will cover topics in a fun and interactive way such as: communication with the host family, giving and receiving feedback, caring for children and fun children activities. We also discuss daily life and culture in the Netherlands. The information is treated in the form of workshops, videos, sketches and presentations.

In addition, the au pairs receive a presentation from a specialized company about first aid for babies and children. The 'Welcome Meeting' gives the au pair a flying start for the au pair year. In addition, the au pair will get to know other newly arrived au pairs
