francisco's family from Spain


Stefan's family from Germany is a very functional place to find an AuPair, except the search for names or keywords is not possible, which makes it sometimes inconvenient. The search would be necessary, since there are to be contacted and talked to hundreds of candidates to find the "jewels" among the "fakes" and the "I prepare an incomplete profile just to see what happens without having a clue about the AuPair-system" and the "can you marry me"´s. But of course this problem is not to be allocated to, but just a problem of the times and people abusing the homepage....

Marie's family from Germany

Dear AuPair Team, we´ve been extremly lucky to meet our first aupair through Our first aupair is originally from Ukraine, but she knew German and Germany already, since she lived here for almost 3 years. She was living with us for almost one year and she integrated herself into our family as a real family member. She saw what needed to be done and she bonded with our newborn baby girl like a sister, maybe even closer. After this great year with her, she started to do an "Ausbildung" (3 year training on the job) as an engineering draftswoman in September 2019, in a company just 20 minutes from our home and she still comes to see us frequently and attends our family parties. We also met our second aupair through but unfortunatelly, she is the complete opposite of our first aupair. She comes from Kazakhstan and she lied to us about her intentions to come to Germany in the beginning already. She came here to be together with her German boyfriend. Before we hired her, we asked about having a boyfriend in Germany and she lied to us. She used the aupair visa to come to Germany several weeks earlier, before she started being our aupair, but claimed towards us, that she is still in her hometown. She has only very little interest in our one year old baby girl, but much more interest to learn German language and have free days to meet with her boyfriend, since she already told us, that she will definetly marry this guy to stay in Germany. It turns out, that she is lying very often and we lost the trust in her completely. She thought, that she just has to take care of a baby for 4 hours per day and taking care means to her, just sitting in the same room, learning German and watching the baby, no matter if the baby cries, is hungry or thursty or if the diaper needs to be changed. She didnt expect, that she has to help with the dishes, prepare food for the baby, or help in the kitchen when we cook etc. Since she is not interested in taking good care of our baby and doesn´t want to be part of the family, we are looking for a new aupair. After the first really great experience, the second one is very bad. We hope, that a new aupair will fit much better to us and especially doesn´t lie. But most important to us is, that the new aupair loves to take care of our baby and stay with us as a family member, which also includes helping with the daily chores. We already learned from our experience, that it´s important to check, the motives of the aupair for their wish to come to Germany and to have not just one interview and 2 or 3 video calls, but write and talk over several weeks and try to get to know more about the aupair. Otherwise, it might be very disappointing, for us and the aupair. Kind regards UK
