Matching with Your Host Family

With Cultural Care Au Pair we have a personalised matching team who will review your application and match you according to your child care experience and interests. You will be a part of the largest network of host families in the USA. All applicants are able to review a family's application and speak to them before accepting or denying an offer.

How the Matching Process Works:

  • We read every application and check references from our Cape Town office.
  • Once we have officially accepted your application, the Placement Team will begin looking for a match for you.
  • When you are matched with a family, you are able to review their basic information in your online account.
  • The host family will review your information and if they feel you might be a good fit, they will call you for a phone interview.
  • Once the phone interview is complete, you and the family will decide if you would like to match with one another.
  • If both parties agree to match, we will begin arranging the travel plans.

We understand you might be nervous for the phone interview. We recommend thinking of a few potential questions you would like to ask your future family so you feel prepared. Also, remember to be yourself!
