For Host Families
Sunshine Au Pair prepares invitations specifically tailored to your family needs, and after which, we will then start our stringent au pair selection process. The candidate au pairs are thoroughly vetted. We will then provide the host family with profiles of our au pairs together with copies of their reference documents. Our au-pairs are independent, reliable, positive and all have experiences in looking after siblings and/or with baby-sitting.
Our services will be available to you during the entire period of your au pair’s stay: You may call us 24/7.
Sunshine Au Pair provides high-quality service. Quality means a successful au pair placement that meets the expectations of both the host family and the au pair.
Clarifying the expectations of the host family and the au pair
Assessing the suitability of the au pair and host
Supporting the host family and au pair during his/her
Offering opportunities to au pairs to broaden their cultural experience
We are looking for an au pair to join our family
Based on your requirements, wishes, and needs, we will send you possible candidates that we think will suit your needs. We will then schedule Skype conversations for you and the candidates you have chosen. If you have found your ideal Au Pair, then there is a match!
We found an Au Pair on our own
With the self-match service, we will need to have a Skype talk with your chosen Au Pair candidate before confirming to work with your family. We need to make sure that the candidate knows the Dutch Au Pair program and the rules of being an Au Pair in the Netherlands. We will also introduce the Sunshine Au Pair agency to your chosen Au Pair, explain the Au Pair program in detail to her, and after which, we will request the necessary documents for the registration and application of the visa and/or the residence permit.
How long does the procedure take?
What more does Sunshine Au Pair do?
It is our first time to host an Au Pair.
We do always to ask the Host Families the following:
- Do you have experience in living with others?
- If not, are you ready with welcoming/opening your house to an Au Pair for a year?
The Au Pair program will benefit the family and the Au Pair. Your family will be introduced to a palette of cultures, languages, and new experiences. Having an Au Pair makes balancing family, life, and a career much easier. The Au Pair will travel to a whole new world, make new friends, learn new languages, experience different cultures, develop themselves, etc. It will be a win-win situation for both parties.
Does the au pair need to have health care insurance in the Netherlands?
Just like everyone in the Netherlands, the Au Pair is required to have health care insurance.
