Au Pair in England – London needs no introduction; if watching the Olympics wasn’t enough, go now to see for yourself: going there for a year is simply awesome!

Eat strawberries and cream at Wimbledon, wear your finest for Ladies Day at Ascot and your glam wellies for Glastonbury! You are also just a short hop across the channel from France and the rest of Europe for frequent weekend-breaks. We also offer our Mother’s help program in Britain, for those who are happy to do longer hours and earn more pocket money!
