Sunshine Au Pair was founded in 2012 and is a recognized Au Pair agency of the Dutch Immigration Office. We offer service throughout the whole of the Netherlands. Most of our host families are located in major cities of the Netherlands. But we also have host families who are located in small villages. We work with au pairs from various nationalities.

We provide detailed interview feedback of the au pairs, do necessary reference checks, help with documentation and visa arrangement for you and your Au Pair, and conduct regular follow-ups meetings. Besides, we also provide quality events for the au pairs, and have online and in-person classes that may help them gain knowledge and connections during their Au Pair year.

For approx. 3 years we are now dealing with Sunshine Aupair to select an au-pair for our (host) family in The Netherlands. With a good explanation what is required for our family Sunshine starts searching for the best suitable candidate. After the selection by Sunshine a number of selected candidates will be invited for a face-time call with the Host Family. Both the candidate(s) and Host Family will give their feedback to Sunshine. Our experience is that the selected candidates by Sunshine usually meets the requirements we requested and in coordination with Sunshine and based on our impression after the face-time call(s) we select the best candidate. We now have our third au-pair working for our family and it works out very well. In January 2018 we are expecting our fourth au-pair. The stay for an au-pair in The Netherlands has a maximum of 1 Year. And we are happy with Sunshine Au Pair service.
