"We all adore her"
Rachel, Mother from UK

In 2011 you introduced me to Dagmar and she came in the November. She stayed for many weeks and on and off over the past 4 years she has become not only an amazing friend to me but part of our family. She came to our wedding and we all adore her. Your service is amazing, you were just starting up then, you may remember our radio appearance!

Anyway this is a long overdue thanks.

“Great flexibility and the motto ‘it will work out somehow’ belong to Italian life”
Granny Maria (65) about her „second family“ in Italy

Four years ago I chanced to come across a newspaper-feature about Granny Aupair: I had already toyed with the idea to aid my knowledge of Italian with a longer stay in Italy and decided to try this via Granny Aupair. Following the start of my retirement, I started a first try to find a family in Italy.

"There will certainly be a next time!"
Granny Martina about her stay in England

At last the time had come: a whole free year streched in front of me! The feeling is unbelievable: You know that you have a year to do things, you always wanted to do, or would have done earlier, if it had been possible. I for my part wanted to travel to England.

“The time in Australia was an asset in all kinds of ways”
Granny Gudrun tells about her time in Australia

The time in Australia was an asset in all kinds of ways. I can recommend it to any woman who is open to new ideas and willing to take a step into the unknown and into a strange family, anyone who is flexible and tolerant, to take the step. The reward is a priceless treasure of experiences, family life and the beautiful feeling to be needed.

"I felt totally at home in my friendly and loving host family"
My Granny Aupair stay in Abu Dhabi

For a long time I already had the wish to leave my daily life and normality for a time and get myself involved in a totally foreign culture, with other people, with a totally different life. I had already heard of Granny Aupair but still needed some time to get my teeth into the idea.

Gabriele, participant in the Granny Aupair-Workshop

"Not only the atmosphere in the beautiful historic rooms was very pleasant, but also that we got to know each other personally. It was important to me to get to know the "other women ", those with the same ideas in mind and heart, similar plans or prospects for the future."
