As an au pair you will take part in the everyday life of a Dutch family. This is a wonderful opportunity to experience a different culture and to see a part of the world. The Netherlands is known for its elaborate canal system and the country’s elevation is below sea level. It is a very tolerant and liberal culture and most importantly, a great place to live.
With the family or on your own free time, you can visit the many beautiful parks, Dutch towns, historical sites, festivals and famous museums. You will have the perfect chance to improve your cycling skills as most people get around by bicycle. As an au pair, you will not be just a tourist or a spectator; instead you will experience The Netherlands like you never thought possible. It is a small country, but full of life and worth spending a year in!
