Frequently Asked Question

How it works?

First of all askaide is not an agency, formalization is done directly between you and the person you have chosen.

When registering, be sure to add a photo, fill in your preferences, and write a short description about yourself and your babysitting experiences.

If a relative near you needs childcare, homemaker, pet sitting, school support or elderly care, they can send you an invitation with the details of the request.

Accept the invitation if you are interested, otherwise decline.

You thus freely and jointly agree with your employee the amount of his remuneration and the different working conditions.

The word "Au Pair" is a French term, which means "on par" or "equal to", denoting living on an equal basis in a reciprocal, caring relationship between the host family and the children. An au pair will typically be a young woman and sometimes a young man from a foreign country who chooses to help look after the children of a host family and provide light housekeeping related to the children. The au pair is given room and board and is typically paid a weekly "pocket-money" salary called a stipend. Au pairs generally stay with their host family for one year.

Au pairs are typically in search of a new cultural experience while also desiring to serve as an integral part of a parenting team. This experience usually draws au pairs to a new country and often times involves improving their foreign language skills.

An au pair is not considered a domestic employee and therefore employment taxes need not be paid as such. An au pair is not a nanny.
