All participants attend pre-departure seminars on the following topics: rights and obligations of participant of Au-Pair program; child’s age psychology; first aid; establishing friendly relations and resolving conflicts with host families;  children’s games and leisure; language courses with Au-Pair vocabulary, etc. All seminars conducted by the Ukrainian Au-Pair Association allow participants to acquire the necessary knowledge for successful participation in the Au-Pair program abroad.

Legality

We are an officially registered association. We are not a travel company and do not provide employment services abroad.

Support abroad

Throughout the Au Pair program, we, together with our Au-Pair Agency partners, personally support each participant as personal mentors. In case of misunderstandings between Au-Pair and the host family, we help to resolve conflicts and /or replace and search for a new host family.
