Granny Aupair Experiences

Granny Au pair Experiences


This is what our members say

Here our Grannies and families tell us about their personal experiences with Granny Aupair. Be inspired by Cambodian weddings, given away cuddly toys and lucky meetings!

„The family is very hospitable and very nice“
Maria, as Granny Aupair in Thailand

„Dear Mrs Hansen I just cannot thank you enough for having the fantastic idea of initiating Granny Aupair. I feel extremely well here. The family is very hospitable and very nice. The parents work so much that I am on my own during the day until both children return from school. This is usually between 15 and 17:00 in the afternoon. As I am very well able to keep myself busy, so this isn’t a problem for me. It would probably be more difficult for me the other way round:”

„The three children have become so close to my heart“
Dorothee (64) as Granny Aupair in Norway

„It was a very exciting time I was able to spend in Norway in a loveable family, with whom I will certainly stay in contact. The three children have become so close to my heart, that I am really curious about how they will develop. Norway is a wonderful country, in winter as in summer. It was also important for me to experience my own limitations.“

„Granny Gisela is a very special woman, we enjoyed her stay with us every minute“
Stefanie, mother from Italy

„I think learning something never stops, the same as dreaming“
Dietlinde (70) as Granny Aupair in Portugal

„This enterprise is an adventure. Adventures are – as always – incalculable and not always fantastic. I think learning something never stops, the same as dreaming. I am not disappointed but certainly a bit wiser as before my departure. "

„What I received back in thanks and sympathy in the Indian project was very moving”
Christa (64) as Granny in a women’s project in India

“My stay in the Indian project has personally given me a lot. What I received back in thanks and sympathy there was very moving, Due to the women’s poverty one is involuntarily confronted with questions like: What is really important in life and what do I really need? I was thus prompted to buy hardly anything this winter, as my wardrobe is full and everything seems to be there already. That in some cases the women have had very bad fates but still seemed always happy, extremely impressed me. One sees quite a lot in a different light after returning to Germany. I was a great experience, especially as in India “older people” still have a different standing than in Germany. “

„It could well be that this will not be my last trip as a replacement Granny”
Inge (70) as Granny Aupair in Australia

“My travel bug and my wanderlust made me apply to Granny Aupair and now I have been on Tasmania for three months. On three days a week I look after the two year old son Elliot of a German-Australian family, enjoy family life, the joint trips and excursions and my leisure time for further activities. I have not regretted my trip “to the other side of the world” for one second and It could be that this will not be my last trip as a replacement Granny.”

„She took my hand immediately and said ‚My Gerda!‘“
Gerda (57) as Granny Aupair in England

„In order to learn the English language a bit better, I spontaneously decided last year to apply as Granny Aupair abroad. Together with my husband I visited the chosen family in Nottingham beforehand, so that we could get to know each other. We found ourselves hitting it off immediately and I took Jessica into my heart at once."

„The four year old twins I look after are very lively and keep me on my toes.“
Sigrid (60) as Granny Aupair in England

„I have now been here in Staffordshire with my host family for exactly two weeks where I have quickly settled in. The four year old twins I look after are very lively and keep me on my toes. Up to now everything is working out well. In the coming week I will be looking after the twins on my own for a week, as Kat, my host mother is on a business trip. I hope that will work without a hitch. But I am optimistic and curious what is still in wait for me.”
