As an au pair, you will not be just a tourist or a spectator; instead you will experience The Netherlands like you never thought possible. While it is a small country, it is full of life and a worthwhile place to spend a year!

What do you receive as an au pair?
Pocket money: The pocket money amounts to a minimum of €300 and maximum of €340 per month.

You cannot come to the Netherlands without an official IND sponsored agency (Erkend Referent IND) like Sunshine Au Pair. Au pairs with a European nationality do not need an Au Pair visa or residence permit. However, they do need an authorised agency like Sunshine Au Pair to legally join the Au Pair Program in the Netherlands. The Au Pair program in the Netherlands is set under strict legal conditions. These are set up to protect you as an Au Pair in the Netherlands.
