Become a Host Family

Getting started

Au Pair Foundation has the easiest application process in place and we are with you every step of the way. Once you apply online (this should not take more than 2 minutes), one of our experienced matching experts will be in touch with you to discuss what type of candidate you are looking for. He or she will work with you and listen closely, search for the best possible Au Pairs to match your needs and present them to you as well as guide you through the interview process. Unlike with other agencies, you are the only family matching with a candidate and you don’t have to compete with other families for your favorite Au Pair. We are transparent about how much time you have to interview your favorite candidate and you are the only family speaking to this future Au Pair. Here are the steps for your review:

  1. Fill in initial HF application for access to full profiles of au pairs
  2. Call with one of our experienced Matching Experts
  3. Conduct interviews with Au Pairs
  4. Choose your final au pair
  5. Fill in the remainder of your HF application
  6. Welcome your au pair
