Welcome to Family Au Pair

Family Au Pair is an Amsterdam-based, family-run au pair agency. We are recognized by the Immigratie-en Naturalisatiedienst (IND) in the Netherlands. We mediate between host families in the Netherlands, Denmark, Belgium, Norway and the most suitably qualified Filipina au pairs worldwide.

Global yet Local

Unlike other agencies, we personally/online interview, qualify, perform background checks and match au pairs with host families. We screen out further the potential candidates to get only the very highly-motivated, most well- mannered and caring au pairs for you.

Nothing beats Experience

Patricia was born in the Philippines and has lived in the Netherlands for over 30 years, so she knows and has a deep understanding of both the Dutch/European and the Filipino cultures.

Family Au pair carefully screen au pair candidates and potential host families to ensure a smooth and easy process for all parties concerned. Family Au pair happily provide support to both parties in preparing for adjustments... Read More

Why host an au pair?

“As working parents with three children, combining work and running the household can be very stressful. Having an au pair has several advantages. For our family, it meant having someone to help us lessen the daily stress of helping our children get ready for school, picking them up from school when needed and looking after the children while we are at work, as well as some household chores to allow our family to have more quality time together. For the past six years, we have been successful in finding a suitable au pair for our own family.” - Patricia
