Especially in comparison to fixed opening hours of a day care center, an au pair offers unmatched flexibility in distributing the childcare times over the day and week.

But the family has to bear in mind, that (depending on country – the exact figures for each country can be found in the country information) an au pair is only allowed to work between 20 – 30 hours per week (only in the USA it’s up to 45 hours) so it’s definitely no full time childcare option.

Additionally the au pair needs to have the opportunity to participate in language classes which might interfere with the times when the family actually needs the au pair to look after the kids.
