An Au Pair from South Africa is a great and common choice among Host Families.  Au Pairs from South Africa are taught to be independent from a young age, they grow up quickly and learn to be self-motivated and driven to achieve their goals. They drive from a young age, because of the rural areas here in South Africa, known as Farms. They are social people, love the outdoors, and adore animals, wild life and the ocean.aupairs south africa

American families benefits from South African Au Pairs because they grew up in a country very exposed to western cultures that makes them fit in exceptionally well with American Families, their English skills are very well developed, and South African Au Pairs are able to make the best of every situation and bring positive energy to any household.

I have three Au Pairs from South Africa, all of them are outstanding Au Pairs. This year an Au Pair Phila  from Durbin, S. Africa was nominated by her Host Family from Philadelphia as the Au Pair of the Year for the year of 2012.Phila

In the Au Pair of the Year nomination, Nicole – Host Mom, writes, “Looking back, I know that the day that we matched with Phila was probably one of the luckiest things ever to happen to our family because of the light and love she has brought into our home and for the positive influence she has been on the life and character of my daughters.  As a mother who works very long hours, there is nothing more important in the world to me than to know that, if I can’t be the one to take care of my children during the work week, the person who is taking care of them for me loves them almost as much as I do and is a shining example of grace, courage and character.”Au Pair Phila with her host child

Amazing Experience with Go Au Pair.

Being an Au-Pair has been a very Productive experience for me. I’m on my second year now. In August of 2011 was the time when I thought I was getting away from my comfort zone when I left South Africa. I was scared and didn’t know what life would be like on the other side of the world. But then I found myself experiencing things that I’ve never experienced before, I found myself doing things I’ve never done before.
I found myself making decisions without having to consult my mom or sister to make sure it’s the right decision. Wait… I finally found myself. That’s called being Independent. It took me being away from what I thought was my comfort zone to actually realize that the comfort zone is within myself.


In other words this is the experience that every young woman deserves to have. Having to travel to amazing places, making friends from all over the world, learning different cultures and different types of food, I’m talking Brazilian, Russian, Colombian, German, Canadian, Chinese. the list goes on. But the most important thing is the joy that you bring to Your host family by taking care of their precious children.Phila party 002
The trust and respect that you get from the Kids and parents, it all shows that you do not need to be a mom or a dad to feel like a parent, which is an amazing experience. I don’t go a day without having my host-kids telling me how much they love me. We tell each other that every day.Au Pair Phila with her host child
I strongly believe that the influence you have on the kids stay part of them for the rest of their lives. I try by all means to stay positive, show them love and respect for themselves and other people. And I am happy to say that I get the same kind of treatment from the entire family. I’ve been happy ever since I came here 17 months ago. I will forever cherish this experience.
When I’m not working I get together with friends and have lots of fun. We also have parties with other Au-Pairs almost monthly which are always fun.
I want to give thanks to our LAR Polina, she is the best. And to all the host parents who are giving us (Au-Pairs) the chance to experience different cultures.New year Au Pair
Last but not least, a special thanks goes to all the Au-Pairs that are sending a positive message out to the nation, because what you teach to a child today will be revealed to the nation when they grow up. So let’s keep showing them love, respect and a true meaning of happiness and also learn some things from them.
If we do that correctly, I believe that the world could become a better place.
