Do you want to experience a different culture and explore the beautiful country of the Netherlands while taking care of children and/or helping Dutch families with their daily chores? The Happy Au Pair program will definitely make this come true!
During your stay in Holland, we will organize trips and activities to introduce you to Dutch culture. A calendar of activities will be posted (visit the website regularly) and/or will be emailed to au pairs who are in the Netherlands during the activity. Trips to Amsterdam, Utrecht, and The Hague are just a few to mention, visiting old windmills, participating in Dutch Queen's Day, Carnival, and Sinterklaas are surely something to experience. Plus if budget and time will allow, we also wish you to see neighboring tourist cities of the Netherlands like Paris, Brussels, Gent, Luxemburg, Cologne, Dusseldorf etc.
Dutch language course, First Aid for Children Workshop, Christmas Party/Dinner, and visit the famous Keukenhof are also some of our regular activities for au pairs within the Netherlands.
We also require every successful au pair to obtain (with the help of Happy Au Pair) a regular museum card and transportation card for easy and affordable ways for you to explore by yourself the Netherlands.
