How Does it Work?
3. Family Profile
Sometimes one conversation is enough.
Other times either the family or the applicant need more time before making up their minds.
Agree on an arrival with your host family. We strongly advise you not to buy a plane ticket without checking with the host family first. Once you get it, please inform us as soon as soon you can to arrange your pick-up.
Your placement fee is due.
6. Didn´t work out?
We will still be on the look out for the best possible match for you, and will continue sharing your profile with families that we think are suitable for you.
As soon as another family shows interest in having you as their childcarer or tutor, we will repeat step number 5. We will do this as many times as may be necessary
