Au Pair Gap Year

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

The host families that we work with are all located around or in London in pleasant homes and with quite a few other au pairs in the area. Wear your glam wellies for Glastonbury, your finest attire for Ladies Day at Royal Ascot, and eat strawberries and cream at Wimbledon! You will be located very close to France and other areas in Europe for fun-filled adventures on the weekend.

Meet new friends and learn about the experiences of other au pairs around you. Britain is a great place for people to learn English so you can make friends with internationals and help them with your skills.

Indicate any specific passions or hobbies in your profile since you can share these talents and interests with the host family. Participating in activities is another great way to make friends. If you are a fan of animals, then indicate this preference on your profile and you might be able to work in a household with a dog or a cat.
