Au Pair Quality

All of our au pairs are pre-screened and held to the highest standards.  The rigorous admissions process requires au pairs to complete a comprehensive background screening including verifiable childcare experience and passing strict requirements to be accepted into our program.

A Program representative interviews each of our au pair candidates in person.  Au pairs must:

  • Submit 2 non-family childcare references
  • A character reference
  • A physician’s report
  • Proof of completion of secondary school
  • A letter explaining why they want to be an au pair

Our screening process is set up to ensure that only the most mature, responsible, and caring individuals are accepted into the program.
