Au Pair Conecta is a young and proactive company based in Seville, dedicated to services related to "cultural exchange" and "childcare". We offer intermediary services and orientation to families and young people, interested in learning a language as well as improving their language skills at home or going abroad to spend time in other countries and experience another culture.
We are primarily focussing on our Au Pair programs, organizing Au Pair placements in host families in Spain an abroad. Therefore we collaborate with an extended network of international agencies, foundations and ONGs, spread over Europe, the USA.
For Au Pair Conecta each client is important. We set value on taking care individually and professionally of each applicant to our programs, always trying to deliver a service of good quality and know-how in our specific working field. We understand that each person or family might have different nessesities and requests and therefore attach great importance to a rigorous selection process for our programs with the objective of a perfect match-making between Au Pair and Host Family.
Au pair Conecta was founded by its associate partners Belén Cano Montero and Carolin Strohe. The idea was born through our own experiences of having been Au Pair as well as host family and due to our strong belief in the importance and benefits of cultural exchange programs. Both being married to husbands of a different nationality than our own and both being mothers of small children, it was the perfect solution to combine our family lifes with work. We are both convinced that the Au Pair program is a reasonable and rewarding alternative regarding the education and care of our children.
Our team in Spain consists of our two founding associates in Seville, a representative co-worker in Cordoba and collaborators in different cities throughout the national territory. We speak Spanish, German and English and work with a lot of passion and a firm conviction on our projects. We team up with an extensive network of professional agencies and international organisations, which all act in accordance to determined ethic codes and specific international legal guidelines.
Our principal objective is satisfying the nessesities of all our clients and protecting the rights and interests of all our Au Pairs, host families and of course their children! Therefore we continously try to improve our services and reach a high value of quality in our work.
To achieve this target we rely on the following principles:
Au Pair Conecta acts upon a certain statuary provision, established in the European Agreement on Au Pair Placement by the Council of Europe, which was signed and ratyfied in Strasbourg on November 24th of 1969. Spain aligned to this legal regulations on January 24th of 1986 (BOE nº 214 del 6 de Septiembre de 1988).
Au Pair Conecta follows the IAPA´s (International Au Pair Association) general Code of Conduct, an international guideline, formulated to guarantee the fulfillment of all agreements and the protection of our clients.ç
We are founding member of the Spanish Association of Au Pair Program (AEPA), which is a member of the IAPA (International Au Pair Association).
Au Pair Conecta is not a virtual agency managing an online-database. We are a legally registered company, which orientates and advises you during the whole process of the selectd program. From before starting the application until finalising all formalities.
Due to our own experiences of being an Au Pair as well as host family, we understand very well the concerns, doubts, nessesities and requests of both parts. We emphazise with the families as well as the Au Pairs and always keep in mind that the most important element in the whole project are the children.
We like to assume a lot of responsability in our work, from the very beginning until the end of each program.
Au Pair Conecta offers all its clients, being family and/or Au Pair, disposability and flexibility 24 hours a day the whole year through.
Through our individual and personal contact to each client, we try to adapt to the nessesities of all applicants with the objective to please and exceed their expectations.
