I know it is just January, and normally, for au pair matching, it should be still quiet and slow. BUT this year is definitely different.
I see multiple host families seeking Japanese au pairs and started searching their au pairs.
So, if you would like to have an au pair for summer this year, it is not too early. It may be a good idea to start reviewing au pairs’ profiles.
As a fact, several of my au pairs who completed their applications are hoping to arrive in the USA in summer 2017. The earlier, the better for sure.
At the same time, I do also have au pairs who are ready to arrive to the US immediately.
I would say this year, I have more variety compare to previous years in terms of au pairs’ experiences. It is truly interesting. I have, of course, preschool or kindergarten teachers with few years of experiences. I have repeat au pairs who decided to try again. I have nurses who have been taking care of children as well. Don’t forget! I have male au pairs. Our male au pairs like cooking, friendly, and love sports. If you have boys, a male au pair may be something to think about.
We will do our best to have our au pairs complete their applications and place their profiles ready as quickly as we can. We are also planning to have an au pair seminar in March in Tokyo.
We are looking forward to sending more au pairs this year!
