About us

Welcome to HBN Au Pair Services!

HBN stands for “Huisje Boompje Nanny”. The name is derived from the Dutch saying “Huisje- Boompje-Beestje” which means; Living a happy family life.
Yes! you’ve just learned your first Dutch expression!

As a full-service Au Pair Agency we guide and advise both Au pair and Host family in the most personal yet efficient way in the proces before and during the whole Au pair Year. How do I know if the Au Pair program fits me and how do I find the right match? What can I expect from an Au Pair and how does it work? All understandable questions which we will try to answer in our personal and transparent approach.

Would you rather choose your Au Pair yourself or have you found your matching Au pair already?Than you can choose our Self Match Service. With our new tailored customer automation and our official sponsor of the IND, we take care of all legal procedures and tedious paperwork in the process. HBN feels that the key to the success of the Au Pair program lies in our personal approach and expertise advise and guiding of both host families and au pairs. This is where we profess to make a difference.

Huisje Boompje Nanny was founded by Emeline van der Vecht-Vehmeijer. As a hardworking mother of 4 she personally experienced how tough it is to keep everything balanced; Your home, kids, work and partner. After years of positive experiences with different Au Pairs, she decided to use her expertise and experience to guide other families through the Au Pair Program. She uses both her education (MBA) and her interesting background as a marketer to organize her business Huisje Boompje Nanny in a professional yet personal way.

´Being a host-family ourselves for over 10 years, we have experienced that the cultural exchange together with the help in household and child-care has an enormous added value to our family life. We have a more balanced home and our kids get a taste of another culture and language. Every year we make friendships for life and  see every Au Pair going through a tremendous  personal growth”

HBN has grown into a close and professional team of girls who have been an Au Pair and mothers who have experience in being a Host Family. Through the experiences we share we build a training program for both Au Pair and family that enables us to guide both parties in the best possible way. But the most important is that both parties feel the Au Pair Program is the best option. We want this Au Pair year to be an unforgettable experience for both the family and Au Pair so that the times spend together results in lifelong friendships and something children recall as a joyous time with great memories.
Our team will always be at your disposal for personal advice and we’re looking forward to meet you!
