For approx. 3 years we are now dealing with Sunshine Aupair to select an au-pair for our (host) family in The Netherlands. With a good explanation what is required for our family Sunshine starts searching for the best suitable candidate. After the selection by Sunshine a number of selected candidates will be invited for a face-time call with the Host Family. Both the candidate(s) and Host Family will give their feedback to Sunshine. Our experience is that the selected candidates by Sunshine usually meets the requirements we requested and in coordination with Sunshine and based on our impression after the face-time call(s) we select the best candidate. We now have our third au-pair working for our family and it works out very well. In January 2018 we are expecting our fourth au-pair. The stay for an au-pair in The Netherlands has a maximum of 1 Year. And we are happy with Sunshine Au Pair service.
