AU PAIR

EUROPE

Au Pairing in Europe is a great way to live and experience the European culture, whilst doing something that you enjoy. As an Au Pair in Europe (in either Germany, France or Italy), you will become a part of the family where you will get to learn and partake in the various different traditions, holidays, celebrations and cultures that are well established in Europe.

Why Gap Year UK?

Au Pairing in Europe allows you to be working for 30 hours per week, which will definitely leave lots of free time in which to travel and explore the sights of the rest of Europe. In general, families in Europe are seeking Au Pairs with a native English background. This allows their children to be exposed to a cultural/language experience of hosting an Au Pair from abroad.
