Our agency holds 6 to 8 activities each year to give the Au Pairs a unique Dutch cultural exchange experience. All our events are free for our Au Pairs.
However, due to the pandemic, most of our events are put on hold. We are not sure when the safety protocols and travel restrictions will be eased. Under the current pandemic situation, we are here to provide (emotional and mental) support and guidance to our Au Pairs and Host Families.
To help the Au Pairs connect with their fellow Au Pairs, we have a Sunshine Au Pair WhatsApp group to connect with all our Sunshine Au Pairs. We will also help them join the Amsterdam Au Pair WhatsApp group and Den Haag Au Pair WhatsApp group, etc., where they may connect with all the other Au Pairs in the Netherlands.
Besides connecting our Au Pairs with their fellow ones, below you may see the fixed activities that we have for our Au Pairs for 2021. In-person event details will be organized once the government rules have eased.
For Au Pairs that will or have arrived after December 2020:
“First Dutch experience course” Dutch Language course
These Au Pairs will receive a “Welkom in Nederland” Dutch Language course. The value of this package is 100 Euros. The course will be conducted by professional teachers from Culture Online. For more details, you may visit the Culture Online Website
Online Culture and Welcome Session – Once every two months
We have a virtual Cultural and Welcome session for all our Au Pairs where they may learn about the Dutch Culture and the Au Pair life. This session allows them to share the exciting and challenging things they go through in the exchange year, and at the same time, they will get to connect with their fellow Au Pairs.
Transformation Coaching Sessions – 1 to 1 Private Coaching (upon Au Pair’s request)
Each Au Pair will receive a personal growth session from Veena, a professional personal and business transformation coach, and the founder of Forerunners Consulting and Coaching. These sessions will help the Au Pair to grow and develop themselves, and can also help the Au Pair explore ideas for their future career or study paths. These sessions can also help the Au Pair through the transition, changes and various experiences the Au Pair will be going through in the year.

Our in-person event details will be organized once the government rules have eased.
We can’t wait to see everyone in person soon!
