Au pair preparation

With over 25 years in the business we know that you will go through some challenges preparing for your exchange as an au pair. But don't worry, we will be there to support you every step of the way.

Once you've chosen your host family there's still a lot to do to get ready for your experience abroad. Before departing New Zealand you will receive preparation material from us on a regular basis to help you get ready. Some of this material will coach you through the emotional and mental preparation. Others will focus on general childcare topics like safety, and how to develop a good relationship with your host children. There will also be information on the USA and how best to succeed during this experience. 

All of this pre-departure information will help prepare you for your first adventure in the USA at the Au Pair Training School outside New York City. The training you receive there will support you throughout your au pair experience.
