Family: couple, girl 11 + boys 13,7 and 5
Lenght of stay: 3 months, March - May 2023
My experience was incredible. I stayed with the most accommodating family, who made me feel very welcome and cared for. Looking after the children was very enjoyable, and taught me a lot about not only childcare, but about myself.
Ana was very supportive; I was fortunate to have no issues but I know if I had, Ana would have been on hand to help me. The communication process when choosing a family and being chosen was very clear and Ana made it very smooth and easy. Definitely stick it out longer than 1 week; it may feel very overwhelming when you first get there, but once you get to know the family and children and the routine, it’ll become enjoyable and you’ll feel much more confident, even if the first week you feel like it’s not for you or you’ve made a mistake.
Learning the language is a must; I only had 4 weeks of lessons during my trip but they instilled so much confidence in me when speaking to everyone that I would definitely recommend. Also a great way to make friends, I know I’ll continue learning now I am home. I made many memories with the children that I will value forever, and learned a lot about myself from my trip.
It was a great experience and I’m so glad I decided to au pair, and choosing to go through Destino Idiomas was the best choice.
