My day is like any au pair's day, when the children are at school I am free and my time is my time. I learned a lot about childcare, the dutch culture and lifestyle, more patience, disciplining children, be part of a family. I am very happy with my host family as I never experienced any problems with them at all or with my au pair agency. I enjoy every moment of this job as I have lots of free time which enable me to travel and to see places. The hard part of this job is to maintain disciplines at all times and to have patience every moment when you are with the children.
free boarding and meals, 2 days off per week, at least one weekend per month, 2 weeks paid leave and free return flight ticket.
not really much of cons, committ to a full year, hard work and need to overcome obstacles.
