How to get started:

Once the agency receives the host family application and application fee of $75, the placement manager will contact you with Next Steps.  The local representative will be in touch to schedule the in-home interview; and relevant agency documents will be forwarded for your review.

  1. Fill out the Host Family Application and "submit" - Approximate time: 10 minutes

  2. Download/View the Payment Authorization Form for the Application Fee and follow the payment instructions.
  3. Forward the Employment Reference Form to your employer to fill out and return to the placement manager (contact information above). One per family is required. The Employment Reference should show verification that the host family earns sufficient income to support a live-in au pair per program regulations. If the host family is self-employed, please submit 2 personal references.

  4. Forward the Personal Reference Form to your reference. The Personal Reference should be submitted by a long-time friend or neighbor attesting to the nature of your host family environment showing it would be a good home for an au pair placement.

Once your application is received, the placement manager will be in contact to review your application, discuss your placement and work closely with you to review criteria for your potential au pair. When your application is complete, you will discuss the “Match” process and enter matching where you will gain access to au pair profiles who meet your qualifications. The placement manager will collaborate with you to begin reviewing and contacting potential au pair candidates. Click here for more information on the Matching Process.
