Cultural Care Au Pair advantage
Cultural Care Au Pair has been the leading choice for families looking for an au pair for over 20 years. There are so many factors to consider when choosing an agency — and choosing the right one can make a big difference in your au pair experience. Below we’ve outlined some important points to think about before you make a decision.
Before considering another au pair agency, or another childcare alternative all together, make sure you ask about their:
|Selection of au pair candidates||As the largest au pair agency in the U.S., we have the largest selection of candidates for families to choose from year-round.|
|Recruitment and screening structure||Cultural Care Au Pair recruits every au pair exclusively through established Cultural Care offices staffed with full-time employees. Other agencies outsource their recruitment processes to third-party agents.|
|Local support||Cultural Care Au Pair has the largest network of local childcare consultants (LCCs) in the industry. Our LCCs undergo rigorous training and ongoing professional development.|
|Matching process||We offer our families personalized matching process depending on their individual preference. Once a match is placed into a host family’s online account, they have exclusive access to the application, eliminating the stressful competition between families that exists with other agencies.|
|Payment options||Families have the option to pay the fee in full right away or in installments. All families enjoy a “Peace of Mind” guarantee that protects them in the case of involuntary job loss.|
|Au pair training methods||When our au pairs arrive to the U.S, they spend the first 4 days at our Au Pair Training School on St. John’s University campus in Long Island, NY: the only au pair training school hosted in a formal academic setting.|
|Customer loyalty programs||We reward our loyal host families with the best program fee discounts in the industry and prioritized matching. Repeat families can save up to $2,250 with our Repeat Family Rewards program.|
|Program history and experience||Cultural Care Au Pair has been a leader in the au pair community for over 20 years. Our founding company, EF Education, is the world’s largest private educational institution and manages dozens of cultural and language programs worldwide.|
|Commitment to helping children in need||Cultural Care Au Pair’s philanthropic, non-profit program, Kids First, is dedicated to raising money for children in need worldwide. Our staff, LCCs, host families and au pairs raised over $40,000 for the cause last year alone.|
Perhaps the most important thing you can do to ensure a successful experience as a host family is to find the right au pair. Cultural Care offers superior candidates for you to choose from.
