What will await me on site?

reiseerfahrungen-en.jpg

Discover another culture
Granny Aupair is an adventure! We cannot tell you what will expect you on site. But an adventure is always what we ourselves make of it, and we will never return totally unchanged.

But one thing is certain: Unlike a tourist you will gain deep insights into the soul of a culture. How does the day-to-day life of a family differ from family routines in your own country? How do families raise their kids? How does the school system work? What is a typical weekday meal? Where do locals go shopping? How do they pass their leisure time? What is a typical workday like for the locals? What is the typical weekday routine? How important are friendships? What are the most important values? How do people practice their religion? Come and see for yourself!

Having a Granny Aupair has been such a blessing in so many ways. When I was first looking for an Aupair and then found Granny Aupair, I was thinking mainly about our 16 month old and how he gets so frustrated when I can't take him outside just when I'm starting dinner.

Tips from a Granny experienced Family from Abu Dhabi

Living with a Granny Aupair

Living with a Granny has been a very pleasant experience so far, however the main challenge could be in making sure that everyone is enjoying their privacy. On our first Granny experience, the Granny used to come to our private spaces like bedrooms and study rooms. Her intentions were good and it was her first Granny experience so we didn’t take it personally.
