Finland

Finns are usually described as reserved, quiet and introverted. But wait until you get to know them: you will find them warm, sincere, and hospitable with a great sense of humor! People from Finland are very punctual and appreciate other people being the same. They value honest and open communication, so your Finnish au pair will be comfortable discussing any issues or concerns directly with you.

Most Finnish parents work full time, but spend a lot of time in the evenings and on weekends with their children, taking them to different hobbies and helping with homework. Since both parents work outside the home, children learn to become independent at an early stage which means you can expect your au pair from Finland to be used to doing household chores, preparing meals, etc. Families have on average 2-3 children, so your Finnish au pair will most likely have siblings.

In Finland, parents have access to free daycare for children age eight months to five years, so you can expect your au pair to have child care experience through working at a day care center or kindergarten, in addition to babysitting her neighbor’s children, cousins or younger siblings. Some au pairs from Finland might also have experience as a camp counselor during holiday or church camps.

In order to obtain your driver’s license in Finland, one needs to have acquired a minimum amount of instructed driving in addition to theory lessons. After passing a theoretical and driving exam, people of at least 18 years of age will be allowed to drive. Of course, your Finnish au pair will also be used to driving in challenging weather conditions such as heavy rain, snow or hail. Of course, it is always recommended that you discuss your driving needs when interviewing au pairs.

The Finnish school system is renowned for its high academic standards and results. With English being a mandatory subject starting at elementary school, Finns usually have very good English skills; in fact they are amongst the best English speakers in Europe. Your Finnish au pair might also be able to speak Swedish fluently, as it is the second official language in Finland.
