How Au Pair Butrfly works?

To help families with their research, the process of registration is quick and complete in  only five steps!

The Butrfly aims

Butrfly is a platform that connects host families with au pairs. Our goal is to help you find the best au pair match. That’s why we propose you to complete your profile with pictures and personal datas as well, because it’s important for us to understand who you are and all your criteria your future au pair has to fill in.

With this in mind, we organize an interview with you after your registration. We are listening your requirements and guide you with the process. We let you the choice between different packages according to your needs. Relative to the type of services you want, we assist you throughout the process of the au pair program.

Advices to create a good profile

On your account, don’t hesitate to be precise for the au pairs looking at your profile. Most of them have already had an idea about the kind of host family they want, but some ones require more information about you. More details you share on your profile, more time you will save with au pairs don’t match with what you want or what they want.

The registration process

As a family, complete your host family profile. Choose your type of support according to your needs. You will then be able to get in touch with the different profiles that interest you via our internal messaging system. Afterwards, if you wish, you can use your personal messaging system to get to know your au pair better.

Once you have made your choice, accept your future au pair on your dashboard to validate the match and notify you that you are no longer actively searching. Once this step is completed, depending on the package you have chosen, you either do the administrative procedures (au pair contract, visa, insurance, etc.) alone with your au pair or host family, or we will accompany you with all the administrative formalities.

Then your au pair experience begins!

After looking for an agency and participated to an Au Pair BUTRFLY webinar, we subscribed to the Premium formula. The Au Pair BUTRFLY team is really nice and is fully dedicated to the families AND to the Au Pair (candidates and recruited). The experience for the recruitment process was very good. Considering our context (blended family with joint custody), the agency offered many alternatives and responded very well to our specific requirements, our incessant questions, and tight timeline. After the recruitment process, the preparation of our Au Pair's arrival was just as good and followed, and they are still following our family and our Au Pair. We don't regret choosing BUTRFLY Au Pair at all, and we will continue to work with this agency as long as we need an au pair for our family.

The Butrfly agency bends over backwards to ensure that the "au-pair experience" runs smoothly from A to Z, both for the au-pair and the host family. Advice, trust and kindness. I highly recommend going through this agency to ensure that it's a success on both sides!

Professional, responsive and pleasant support. We've hired several au pairs in the past, but now I only use Butrfly because it's very reassuring for everyone.

Perfect made-to-measure support! A big thank you to the Butrfly team and particularly to our contact person who immediately understood our request and was able to answer our questions proactively.
