As any other city of the world, the cost of hosting or hiring a child-minder, nanny or Au Pair can change remarkably regarding on what part of the country you live in.
An au pair is in charge of taking care of the children. He or she will get food and accommodation provided by the family free of charge and a small allowance in addition (basic pocket money). The family must also allow the au pair her time off.
Most of the time, the main reason for coming to Andorra is to learn Catalan, Spanish or French and get experience abroad. Indeed, au pairing is an ideal way to become fully involved in the Andorran way of life! During the time off, the au pair is free for what she wants to do: learning the language at school or just travel around this bi-border country.
Au pairs are not professional child minders and will not be a qualified nanny.
There are no conditions set to become an au pair in Andorra. However, one will probably prefer girls (it can be boys... but it's rare) between 18 and 27, European citizens (in order to avoid visa problems) and experienced with children.
