Activities & Things to Do

Our au pairs and host families work together to plan daily schedules and activities for their children. Caring for children is a full time job requiring full attention, so this section aims to make it easy for parents and au pairs to get creative and try new things throughout the au pair placement. The activities discussed here are a great opportunity for host parents, host kids and au pairs to bond and make lasting memories.
