The matching process might seem to be the most difficult part of the program process. You might have a lot of questions and doubts about matching with the right host family. Our agency will support you during this process and answer all your questions.
Once your application is approved and available online for host families, they may contact you and discuss your childcare qualifications in depth. Be patient, as it can take some time for families to start contacting you. The entire process from the time you submit your application to when you arrive in your host family’s home can take as little as 6-10 weeks - or longer depending on how many families are looking for an au pair with your specific qualifications.
It is required to have at least two telephone conversations before matching with a host family. Make sure you are well prepared for the interviews. Read the family profile, write down any questions you want to ask them and be prepared to answer the host family’s questions.
If a host family believes you are the perfect au pair for them, they will ask you to match with them. Remember that the matching process is a mutual agreement and both, the au pair and host family need to make a decision. Be sure to match with a family whom you are excited about and for whom you are confident you can meet their child care needs. When you agree to match with your family, you will choose an arrival date that you both agree to.
Once Au Pair 4 Me is notified about the match and agreed arrival date, we will process the match and finalize it. Your au pair profile will no longer be viewable by other host families. You will be notified that your match has been processed and approved and Au Pair 4 Me will send you information about your visa process.
