Square AuPair was created with experience and passion.
I am Kristyna, the owner and director of Square AuPair.
I moved to the UK from Prague in 2000 as an Au Pair with the plan to stay for 10 months to improve my English. I remember the feeling of arriving to London with just two (rather large and over packed) suitcases, very well. Meeting my host family at Stansted Airport for the first time, I was full of excitement but equally nervous. I had no idea what to expect. It turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made (sorry mum and dad!) and one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. During my 12 months Au Pair experience, I learned English, I made long lasting friends, I became independent and discovered the true English culture – and along the way England has also become my home.
Fast forward a few years later, and suddenly I found myself standing in the middle of the airport again, this time with my husband and my 5 year old daughter by my side, waiting for our very first Au Pair to arrive. I was equally excited and nervous, just like all those years ago, but this time I was thinking – Who is this person I am letting into my home, my family, my life?
Like you today, I began with searching for the right Au Pair agency to match me with the right person…and felt totally lost, scared by the lack of communication and almost as part of some sort of “au pair world machine”.
Luckily, our first Au Pair was a fantastic young lady – however all the promised support, feedback and help once she arrived never materialised for either us as the host family or for the au pair. Is this right? NO!
It was only because of my own past experience and initiative that I knew how to approach our first few days together.
I am very passionate about delivering the service we promise, being a support to both host families and au pairs before, during and after they are matched together.
I have experienced the feelings of everyone involved (and this includes very vocal feedback from my daughter!) and I know how important the Agency’s support is.
Having an Au Pair has turned into another one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for my own family.
I’m always delighted to receive direct feedback about Square AuPair – why not email me directly, even if it’s just to say hi! Kristyna@squareaupair.com
