Have you ever wondered what makes Polish au pairs so special? Our recruitment team in Warsaw would like to share some of their top cultural insights with you below.
Staying power: Coming to the USA seems unreachable for the average citizen. They must obtain a visa to travel as a tourist so they appreciate the fact that as an au pair they can go for up to 2 years. They don’t tend to give up easily and actually have the lowest early return rate of all nationalities. Polish au pairs love their experiences so much that they have the highest extension rate of all the European markets!
Strong English: Polish au pairs begin learning English starting in Kindergarten. In high school, all students are required to take English and a second foreign language and pass the exam to be able to graduate.
Independence & maturity: It is very common for Polish university students to move away from their families at age 19, live alone or with other students, and have a part time job while they study full time.
Strong driving skills: Polish au pairs tend to have a lot of driving experience even before they get their licenses. They are also used to driving in all weather conditions as we have hot summers and very cold winters.
Childcare experience: Most Polish au pairs have a lot of experience taking care of children, whether siblings or cousins, or through volunteering at kindergartens, orphanages, or scouting. Scouting leaders travel with a group of kids and take care of them for about 2 weeks, 24 hours a day. Our au pairs really love kids, they really want to be au pairs, and when we do have transitions, childcare is rarely the issue.
