Au Pair of the Year Award 2015

For the eleventh edition of the IAPA Au Pair of the Year Award, we have received a record number of 59 submissions.

The nominations were made by host families from around the globe, from Beijing to Alaska and from Hawaii to the Netherlands. The au pairs themselves, male and female, came from South Korea, Germany, Iceland, Jamaica and America.

The overall quality of submissions was impressive this year, all referring to their great experience with their au pairs and reaffirming the importance of the au pair programme’s basis: cultural exchange.


Because we are a military family the cultural exchange aspect of the programme was very appealing to us … We not only wanted assistance with our boys, but wanted to share our country and provide a rich life long experience for their year abroad.
– S. family, Peyton, CO, USA

The au pair programme, although new in China, has already proven to be so meaningful! We are able to have a close look at English lifestyle, culture, society and education.
– Z. family, Hangzhou, China

 “Our au pair introduced us to a Swedish Christmas, bringing traditional Swedish treats and customs to our family, which was all the more impressive given that at the time she had only been with us for a month.
– H. family, Weybridge, Surrey, UK


After a thorough review of all the nominations, we have determined an initial top 10 shortlist. The difficult task now remains to determine the top three finalists.

The top three finalists will be announced next week – Watch this space for more information!

The winner will be requested to join us in Lisbon, Portugal for WETM-IAC 2015 and will be announced during the celebration dinner on Monday, 16 March 2015.


Thank you to all our members participating in our Award and making it into a success:
