Premium Families and Certified Profiles at Au Pair Butrfly

Fanny · 11/08/2022

Launched in 2018, Au Pair Butrfly is the leading French au pair agency. Our primary mission has always been to make this program accessible in France to both families and young people who want to travel. The majority of our families in France have now welcomed their first au pair with us, and we have been able to support young people who have come to France from across the globe!

Premium Families and Classic Families 

At Au Pair Butrfly we have 2 types of families who wish to host an au pair:

1. Classic families who want to be independent in finding their au pair: They are validated according to regulatory criteria: they have at least one child over 3 years old, have presented an identity document and photos, and have completed 100% of their profile. These families are free to contact you and you are free to contact them. Au Pair Butrfly did not interview them.

2. Premium families who want Au Pair Butrfly to take care of everything for them. These families subscribe to a package that includes: the recruitment of suitable candidates, the paperwork (contract, insurance,...), follow-up and assistance during the entire stay. All these families are validated during a video interview with the Butrfly team. They appear as « Premium Family » in your family search.

  3. You have childcare experience (baby sitting/tutoring/...)
  4. You have an intermediate level of French or English to facilitate communication with the host family

What is a certified au pair?

A certified au pair is someone that has passed a short video interview with the Butrfly team. When creating your profile, don’t forget to book an interview with our team so that you will have more host family choices and so the team can present your profile to our awesome Premium families!
