We had never had an au pair before and were feeling quite unsure about the process, but Nina.care helped us through the whole experience by matching us with the best au pair for us, guiding us through the documents, and supporting us throughout the year when any questions arose. They helped us to find an au pair that aligned with our cultural preferences which helped the integration of her into our family to be really smooth. While I was concerned about losing some privacy, the benefits of having an au pair far outweighed any cons.
We are now on our second au pair with Nina.care and are thrilled with the program as a solution to helping our family! The kids have created a nice bond with both of our au pairs that allows us to leave them in good hands while we finish our work days. They bike home from school with her and she helps with their afternoon activities. Our children are not so little anymore so they don’t need constant looking after, but having someone around in case they do need support in some way is invaluable to us.
We were desperate for an extra pair of hands around the house as the boys would finish school a few hours earlier than we would finish work every day! We couldn’t find a reliable afterschool program we trusted so we began to look into au pairing as an option. What a surprise! We loved it and found it to be the right fit for us as there was a consistent person for the boys to help them with their homework and take them to their afterschool activities.
I had the pleasure of studying abroad in Australia in my youth and wanted to engrain an international mindset in my children from a young age. With daycares being inaccessible due to the price and long wait, I thought an au pair was the perfect solution for our family. Having an au pair in the house has been an absolute life changer for us! She quickly fell into our family and we developed a nice routine. I was a bit concerned about privacy initially, but she wants her alone time just as much as we do so it ended up being a great balance for us.
My family and I were looking for a solution to childcare as we live outside of Belfast and couldn’t find any consistent and reliable options. Nina.care matched us with a lovely Canadian girl who has become a part of our family in just a few short months time. She helps us tremendously throughout the week and we also enjoy time together with occasional family dinners or hikes on the weekend. We love the cultural exchange having an au pair in our house brings to our kids and are happy to have someone we trust watching after them.
We were really struggling to find a solution for our family as all of the daycares in the area had months-long waiting lists. My husband and I were trying to juggle full-time work with full-time childcare, and it was becoming near impossible. Bringing an au pair into our home couldn’t have been a better solution! We now have consistent, reliable help from someone that our children love and adore. We trust her entirely to keep our children safe and occupied, and it allows us to have the work-life balance we have been desperately needing. Our free time can now go to doing fun things with our children on the evenings and weekends rather than doing chores around the house!
For us, Nica is already the 10th au pair! We are very happy with our au pairs because it was impossible before, with busy jobs and now 4 children, a dog (and 3 turtles) Privacy was not a problem for us, in the evening my husband Taco and I just want some family time, and that’s the same for our au pair she also just wants to spend some quiet time alone or with friends!
The daycare in our neighborhood was fully occupied, and that is why, after hesitating a lot, we chose for an au pair. I can only say that I’m positively surprised! If you match with an au pair that suits your family, it is a very nice solution that gives you space and time to really spend time with your children.
Hi! We are the au pair agency of Nina.care. What kind of au pairs do we select? We choose our au pairs very carefully. We only want reliable, sparkly people who really love and adore children.
We guide you and your au pair in every step throughout the au pair stay, so you don’t have to worry about a thing. We get in touch with our au pairs and make sure we have all the right documents, including the au pair contract, to ensure they are well prepared for the au pair program.
We screen our possible au pairs carefully and give advice when needed throughout the au pair program. Before your au pair arrives, she will get an information box with practical tips to feel right at home.
Our au pair academy has great language courses to help your au pair get to know our culture. We check in by sending a Whatsapp or call, and we’re always available for any questions you might have. We have matched more than 500 au pairs already, so we know what we’re talking about!
We take our screening very seriously. We follow all au pair requirements including asking for a background check, legalized birth certificate, and a medical examination, and we ask each potential au pair everything about their home situation, experience with children, ambitions, and everything necessary to really get to know them. That way, we can guarantee the best match for your family.
We are a recognized sponsor, which means that our au pair agency must ensure that all administration is in order and that the au pair laws and regulations are complied with with the Dutch government and UK government. That is a major task because the regulations are complex. In addition, we draw up the necessary contracts, check the documents supplied, check visa requirements, payout monthly pocket money, and support the au pair application.
Once your au pair has arrived, we ensure all au pair arrangements are made and help in applying for health insurance, setting up bank accounts, and getting settled in their new communities. We also offer regular evaluation points throughout the au pair stay to identify room for improvement and ensure everyone is happy during the year.

An au pair is (depending on the regulations per country) between 18-30 years old and comes from another country to partake in a rewarding cultural exchange programme. He/she comes and lives at your place and helps you take care of your kids and the household. First and foremost you need to see it as a cultural exchange and as a wonderful experience for your kids. Secondly, it’s a flexible and affordable way of daycare.
Based on the thought of joining a cultural exchange, an au pair is generally entitled to free board and lodging in exchange for doing childcare and light housework. On top of this, they receive monthly pocket money, to enable them to get to know the culture and language of their host country. Every country has its own au pair regulations. You can find a detailed look at the regulations in your country here or a general help on au pair here.
Typically, au pairs can stay anywhere between 3 and 24 months with their host family. It depends on which country you live in. You can find a detailed look at the regulations in your country or a general help on au pair here.
