I am an American and am looking to au pair in France. I've only just begun my search for an agency and feel pretty overwhelmed. I'm hoping some of you might be able to answer a few general questions.
1. What agencies have you all used?? I've found some very specific ones on UFAAP's site, but then there's also the larger ones like GreatAuPair. Any recommendations?
2. How likely is it to be able to au pair in a specific location in the country?
3. Just out of curiosity, about how long did it take for you to get everything set up, from joining an agency to finding a family to actually going there?
Thank you so much for your help!
