Questions & Answers

The application for my Au Pair position only took a few weeks. I signed up and within a few days I had a Skype call with the company to ask questions and get more information. After, I decided to move forward the company sent me family profiles and before I knew it I was doing my Skype interviews with potential families. From signing up and arriving in Australia it took about three months.

Safe and Easy Program

When I graduated college in 2012 I knew I wanted to travel, but committed to teaching for three years first. As my three years of teaching came to an end I began looking for programs that were trustworthy and helpful. This program is exactly that. I first emailed the company and found a quick response. Then, was able to Skype and ask further questions, while getting to interact face to face, which put me a little more at easy. After deciding to move forward with this program, the whole process was extremely easy and very exciting. Within two months of my first contact, I was leaving for Australia with a job and a place to live. The transition was so easy, they really helped me get everything set up the first week I was here and provided me with opportunities to meet new people.

The family that I have been placed with has been absolutely wonderful! There was no surprises when I came here, everything was exactly what the program said it would be and what the host family said it would be. I wouldn't change anything about this experience.

I highly recommend this program.

A Program for Anyone

I'm not the typical candidate that applies for an au pair program. I am a 26 year old male from the United States. Needless to say, I was apprehensive about the opportunities that would be available for me in Australia. I had quite my job as a fifth grade teacher in order to travel the world before settling down, buying a house, and starting a family.

From the very beginning of this process, I was able to meet with a great staff that helped and reassured me about this process and was more than willing to address my concerns.

After making the life changing decision to move forward with this program, I was amazed and thankful for how easy the process was for me. There was very little that I had to do. I simply provided my information, and they created my profile for me. They found families that were interested in my services within days. Within a month's time, I was in Australia with family that I would share this amazing journey with for the next six months.

I highly recommend that you take this opportunity to move overseas and follow your dreams. Never regret the things you wish you should have done!
