Useful tips for host families
- Be flexible.
- You need time to get used to each other. Patience is required by all. Help your au pair feel welcome and make sure she is truly a part of your family. Ask her how you can make her feel welcome with regard to cultural differences, food, customs, etc.
- Spend one or two days showing her everything in your home, the neighborhood….
- Post a written schedule every week, so that the aupair knows when she is on duty.
- Good communication is the key, talk to her.
If you ask us, Family & Aupair will provide both of you with support and suggestions during the stay.
