While you will never become rich by working as a nanny or au pair, the pay is reasonable, and your board and lodging is all covered by your host. Health insurance is often provided as well. This means that you can travel to another country without concerns about finances or emergencies, as you will be covered by your employer for most eventualities. But what are some of the other advantages of taking up employment of this type?

Build new friendships - you will most often be placed with a family, but not as a servant. The term 'au pair' refers to someone with equal standing in the family as the other members. That means to you get to live with the family as one of their own. You do everything with them, and this means that if the family takes a summer holiday, you get to go along! The friendships built over a long summer can last a lifetime.

Excursions are paid for - you can plan different adventures, picnics or excursions to the park, the zoo or to a museum. As long as you take the children, you get your entrance fees paid for, you food is supplied, and all your transport is provided. Sometimes you even get to drive the family car.

Research and Study - if you are studying sociology, anthropology or teaching, working and living with a family in a context different from your own can give you great insights into your study, or can even supplement a research project. In any case, having experience as a nanny in a foreign culture goes really well on your resume, especially if you are preparing to work in education or a child related career.

New Skills - you will learn new skills like meal planning, household management, activity planning, transport arrangement, budgeting, and organising a schedule. These are all invaluable skills to have under your belt.
