Full service

The success of the exchange year depends to a large extent on the choice of the right Au Pair. After all, they will live with in your home and will be, in some extent, in charge of the upbringing of the children. It is necessary to choose the right candidate because they will have certain rules and responsibilities to adhere to. Choosing the right candidate will ensure that the year ahead will be a success. It is important that you and the Au Pair share a connection or that you “clicked”, this will help to build a better bond.

Thanks to our many years of experience in the mediation process between the Au Pair and the host family and our extensive international network, Au Pair International is exceptionally able to find a suitable and qualified Au Pair for your family. Once we have evaluated and identified your needs, we will work with our partner agencies in South Africa, Ukraine, Russia, Colombia, Argentina, Mexico, China and / or Thailand in search of the ideal Au Pair candidate. In the menu tab “Au Pairs”, you can get acquainted with a examples of au pair candidates.

Our foreign colleagues interviewed all candidates on our database. In addition, an extensive file of each candidate that applied, consisting of an application form with personal information, experience, their background and photo’s, a letter to the host family, references, a health certificate, diploma and a certificate of good conduct, is compiled. Of course, we expect our candidates to have good English language skills, have an affinity with children and light housework, and have good social and communication skills.

We continue with the “matching” procedure with the utmost care. Each Au Pair candidate goes through an extensive interview process with a Dutch employee of Au Pair International. Because we have personally seen each candidate and performed an interview via Skype, we are able to create an accurate match. During the selection process we will always keep your needs, desires and personality in mind. If you have any doubts about a candidate please let us know, we will discuss your concerns with our partner agency, and if necessary, we will propose new candidates. Au Pair International will continue until you have the right person and you can make a sound decision.
