Discovering the need for a Smart Au Pair
As two full-time working parents, the desire to have our children cared for within the comfort of our own home led us to consider the option of having an au pair. We wanted to ensure our kids were not in long daycare and that household tasks were taken care of while we focused on our careers. Seeking a balanced work-life routine, we knew an au pair could be the answer.

In our quest to find the right au pair agency, we stumbled upon Smart Au Pairs through a simple Google search. We decided to explore further and learn how they could assist us in this important journey. From the moment we connected with Camilla, our impressions of Smart Au Pairs were overwhelmingly positive.

Our perfect match(es)
Over the course of our au pair journey, we have welcomed five au pairs into our home. However, it was the current au pair, Sanna, who surpassed all expectations. Recommended by Camilla herself, Sanna has proven to be the best fit for our family. She brings a vibrant energy and love for adventure to our household, is very active and into lots of different activities such as boxing and diving.
