About Us

Sunshine Au Pair takes a personal approach towards the host family and the au-pair. Our goal is always to find an excellent match.

In order to find an excellent match, Sunshine Au Pair evaluates the personal qualifications and personality traits of candidate au pairs and host families. As part of the service, we visit interested host families to discuss their expectations and their personal preferences.

Sunshine Au Pair recruits young women and men, who are genuinely interested, capable and suitable in becoming an au pair. With our extensive network of contacts we reach many people in small cities throughout Asian countries, where we often find the most interested and motivated young people. Our candidate au-pairs are selected on basis of a thorough and objective system with strict criteria.

Sunshine Au Pair keeps close contact with the host family and the au-pair during his/her stay in the Netherlands. We also invite au-pairs to interesting cultural events.

Lucy Lu, the owner of Sunshine Au Pair, and her Dutch partner, Rens Hartkamp, know from own experience all the nuances of inviting an au-pair. Together, they have developed profound insights into cultural differences and expectations of host families and au-pairs. They consider the exchange of cultural backgrounds, norms and values as motivating and enlightening.
