Newsletter Grannies - Invaluable Experiences

Dear Ladies,

Again and again we receive reports of grannies who enthuse about their lovely times around the world. From Australia, Abu Dhabi, USA, South Africa, Malaysia etc.: Granny Aupairs bring home priceless impressions and experiences as souvenirs from all over the world. True to Granny Aupair's philosophy of cultural exchange. Away from the normal tourist program our temporary Grannies have intensive experiences in a foreign country, which they can get to know in a completely different way due to the family connection. 

Our families are also very enthusiastic about the concept. Nevertheless on occasion irritations arise for example concerning pocket money and the Granny’s tasks. Both sides sometimes have exaggerated expectations. Therefore we would like to point out explicitly once again: Granny Aupair is not a job agency. The word "au-pair" comes from French and means "reciprocity". We see our initiative in this original sense of the word. 

As a Granny you live in a family for a period of time as a temporary grandmother or help in a social project and are integrated into the everyday life of another culture. Language barriers, unknown customs and differences in mentality have to be mastered by both sides. But this challenge is also your chance for personal development and to experience yourself in a completely new way.

It is very important to be totally clear in advance whether you feel up to the task. And what kind of type you are. For example, if you go to the suburbs of an American or Brazilian city or to one of the "gated communities" in Namibia or South Africa, you could be on your own a lot and should be able to occupy yourself, especially if the children are in school most of the day. Those who would like to have a lot of social contacts should take a close look to see if there are any possible leisure activities nearby. 

Currently around 70 families from all over the world are looking for a loving temporary Granny as soon as possible or later. We are introducing you to three of them below.  

Best wishes from 

your Michaela Hansen und your Granny Aupair-Team

English Country Living

 

Beautiful little villages with houses of golden limestone nestling in the middle of a landscape of rolling green hills, this is what the Cotswald countryside in the heart of England looks like. The village of Ampney Crucis be found in the county of Gloucester not far from the historic town of Cirencester you can find. 

Here a family of four  and a dog (user name Redgreentiger) with two little girls (5 and 2) are looking forward to welcoming a loving experienced temporary Granny with a driving license as soon as possible. The two little girls are at school and nursery until the afternoon so the Granny would have enough time to explore the beautiful surroundings or visit a language course. A lovely room with a private bath is waiting for the Granny. The travel costs will be taken over in part.
