An au pair budget friendly travel itinerary for Split, Croatia
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!
Hi! I am a full time working mother with 3 kids (12, 8, 7) and a father who is away for work about 6 weeks at a time. Our first au pair was from South-Africa and our current Maryana is from Brazil. Our au pairs are so much fun, and we really see it as enrichment for her, the kids and ourselves.
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. 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 set by the government are complied with. That is a major task because the regulations are complex. In addition, we draw up the necessary contracts, check the documents supplied, pay out 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 between 18-30 years old and comes from another country to partake in a rewarding cultural exchange program. They come and live at your house and help you take care of your kids and the household.
First and foremost, you should see it as a cultural exchange and as a wonderful experience for your kids. Secondly, it’s a flexible and affordable way of daycare. The best of both worlds!
You pay after we’ve found you your perfect au pair.
Our au pairs come from all over the world! The thing they have in common is that they LOVE kids and speak English so that communication isn’t going to be an issue!
Yes, the au pair can do light housework. They can help with vacuuming, emptying the dishwasher, putting in a wash and folding laundry – but no cleaning of the bathroom of cleaning windows for example.
As part of the au pair program, au pairs are entitled to all meals and housing from the host family. They must live in the same house as their host family and should have a private room with a door, window, bed, wardrobe, and desk as well as access to a bathroom. Their food and living quarters are included if they become sick or are on holiday time.
We love to send profiles of matching candidates to you and can assist with making your au pair contract, the extensive screening of your au pair, visa application, and support during the au pair year.
