The schedule may be flexible, but there is a certain holiday policy:
The Au Pair should have at least one afternoon off
The participant should have at least one day off (which will be 1.5 days off a week along with the free afternoon)
They should have time to attend a language course
At least once a month the day off should be a Sunday.
The participant should get 5 weeks of holidays per year. If she/he starts the stay after the 30th of September, she/he should receive 6 working days holiday by the end of the year. In any case, discuss everything before the stay begins! The Au Pair will get payment during the holidays, days off and days of illness.
