Let us discover the joy of cultural exchange together with our children!

Au pair is a foreign youth who stays a maximum of one year with a family.  Au pair program is a form of cultural exchange. The host family opens their home to and share their culture with an au pair. In return, the au pair shares with the host family their culture, help with child care tasks and light household duties. The word au pair actually means ‘equal’. An au pair is not an employee of the household, but an equal temporary family member. 

Au Pair Bureau HELDER is the first Dutch au pair bureau specialized in Chinese (Mandarin) speaking au pairs. Please join us or contact us.
