Enjoy your summer abroad as an Au Pair!

If you have a couple of free months and would like to take part in a cultural exchange program then this is your chance.

How does this program work?

The summer program is just like any other Au Pair experience but shorter since sometimes Host Families normally need an extra help just during the school holidays.

Some of the Au Pair duties during the stay include: taking care of the kids, driving them to their activities, cooking and light housework. Just as in a long term program, the Au Pair will work for a number of hours per week and receive pocket money per week or month. The Au Pair’s free days should be respected and holidays are proportionally deducted depending on the length of stay.

Does the Au Pair have any time off? Of course! Discuss this case with the Host Family - but first find out how it works for you. All the information right here

Being an Au Pair during the summer is also a great chance to have an international experience without leaving your home, friends, family and studies for a long time.

Does the Au Pair program require a minimum stay with the Host Family?

The duration of the Summer Au Pair program depends on the country and the family’s needs. In most of the cases the stay lasts two or three months between June and September. 

What do I need?

The Au Pair requirements for the summer program are the same as for the Au Pair Year. Usually the requirements are: 
  • age between 18-30 (depending on the host country), 
  • experience in childcare, 
  • single marital status, no own children
  • certain language skills 
For summer programs we recommend to choose countries where there is no need to apply for an Au Pair visa.
