What families can become a host family?
- Is there at least one child under 18 living in your household?
- Can you give the au pair an own room at her/his disposal?
- Do you speak Spanish in your daily life?
- Your au pair is not a Spanish citizen / Do you have not the same nationality as your au pair?
The main reason why an au pair comes to you is taking care of your children. Above that she/he takes however also simple tasks in your household.
Hiring an au pair means that your living costs become higher because during the au pair´s stay there lives another adult person in your household.
The au pair gets for the total period of her/his stay with you a free board and lodging. That is valid also in the case of illness and during the holiday of the au pair. Next to that the au pair weekly receives a pocket money from you.
Au pairs in Spain earn 80 EUR a week.
Au pairs in Spain get in a week one day off. Once in a month this day must be the Sunday.
The au pairs´holiday is not uniformly regulated in Spain. The best is therefore to make an agreement with your au pair in advance on the number of the holiday days. We recommend: When the au pair stays with you for 12 months she/he should get a four-week holiday. You can take this value into account in case of a longer or a shorter stay.
Your au pair should attend a Spanish course in order to learn the language as good as possible. Normally the costs of the course are covered by her/him. You as the host family can assist her/him to find something suitable in your neighbourhood. Au pairs staying in Spain on the basis of a student visa must attend a language school recognized by Instituto Cervantes.
