Meet our au pair team

Hi! We are the au pair agency of What kind of au pairs do we select? We choose our au pairs very carefully. We only want reliable, sparkly people who really love children.

  • Our au pairs are reliable, mature, and independent
  • Someone you would love to have around your family

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.

Training and courses 
Our au pair academy has great language courses, first aid course and a pedagogical base course to help your au pair feel empowered in her role as caregiver.  We have matched more than 500 au pairs already, so we know what we’re talking about!

What you can expect from us


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.

Laws & regulation

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.

Support for au pairs and host families

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.

We are Jasmijn and Lyla Kok, founders of Nice to meet you! Our goal is to find the perfect match between families and their au pair or nanny.

What is an au pair?

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.

What are the rights that an au pair has?

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.
