Why Be An Au PairHome > Au Pair Information > Why Be An Au Pair
For many, a childcare job is simply an easy transition to the world of work and a way of acquiring a higher standard of living than is normally possible in one's early working years. In addition to your own room, you may have your own TV, the use of a car, and the chance to accompany the family on exotic holidays. There will be no need to worry about organising or paying for transport to work, finding accommodation and all the other headaches normally associated with starting a job in a new place.
In addition to the worthy goals of learning a language and experiencing a foreign culture, many people simply want to see the world and can't afford a straight holiday. Jane Newel was a trained nanny with two years residential experience in Britain when she noticed an advertisement in a national newspaper for an experienced nanny to care for a three-year-old girl:
It was January when I saw the job advertised and I was immediately interested because it involved a lot of travel. The winter blues were getting to me since I was extremely fed up with the British climate and longed for some sunshine.
It can also be a very good way for young women to assert their independence from over-protective parents. Some au pairs learn to appreciate their own families more after intimate acquaintance with another family.
