2. Match with Host Families
You’ll have an opportunity to connect with potential host families directly to make sure you’re both happy with the match. You’ll have access to interviewing tips to guide the conversation. Matching can take a few weeks.
3. Get your visa and flights
Once we process your visa documentation you can book flights based on the dates you’ve agreed with your host family.
4. Review resources from InterExchange
We’ll provide a wealth of resources to prepare you for your travels including access to our participant Facebook group, our Childcare Guide, and more.
Your host family will pick you up from the airport or train station. You’ll have local support in the Netherlands when you need it, as well as an au pair training manual and more to help you along the way. Every so often you’ll be invited to optional au pair meet ups.
My year abroad in the Netherlands allowed me to create a community and entire second home there. I will forever have connections there now and am excited to go back to visit!
