Why become a Granny au pair?

[ Au Pair ]  is French for equal and even. That is the cornerstone of the OurGranny program. Grannies and Families will share, give, and receive from one another in the most mutual way, making this experience rich and precious.

Whether you call yourself Granny au pair, Nana au pair, Yaya au pair, or Grandma au pair, you are active, enjoy spending time with others, and seek to make a difference in people’s lives. What more fulfilling than being around children and breathing in their liveliness and enthusiasm?

By becoming a family’s Granny, you will be make a true difference in their lives. You probably remember those early years, raising your own children, and how much you valued an extra pair of hand. Simple tasks such as preparing the kids’ lunch boxes can remove much weight off of tired parents’ shoulders. Share your experiences and savoir-faire with them. Help them navigate waters you have sailed before them. You will strive, knowing that you are the one bringing time back into their lives, allowing them to spend more quality moments with one another. You will bring more value to their busy lives than you know.

Do not underestimate the impact that you will have on the children. You will generally be involved with children living far away from their own grand-parents. Be ready to receive countless hugs, dry some tears, be their listener, the one having time to answer when Mommy gets busy with Little Brother. You will become their confident. They will come to you to prepare their cards for Father’s Day or draft their letter to Santa Claus. And only once you become their Granny, will you understand the impact that the children have on your own self. The snuggles at story time will become the favorite part of your days. They will share their unconditional love with you and you will get more out of your Granny experience than you ever imagined.

In this au pair relationship, you will receive so much more than you expect – all in the form of human interaction, love, fulfillment, and experiences. You will feel valued and useful. More than you have been in months or years. You will be that family’s rock and stability. The one they can lean on when times get hard and they need someone to talk to. In exchange, you will receive a new purpose and gain esteem in a way you never imagined. You still have so much to live and experience. Join a family and start seeing life through their eyes – live new things, participate in new activities, share common interests and start new ventures. Give a new sense to your life, you are so worth it!

Life is far from over and we encourage you to start a new chapter as Granny au pair. There is so much in store for you – go and unlock your potential to be happy and feel useful by becoming a child’s Granny, Nana, Yaya, Grandma, or whatever else your host children might call you!
