After 6 years working in the Au Pair sector. 1st Choice Au Pairs have joined the British Au Pair Association. The association is made up of over 30 other agencies and strives to keep high standards within the industry.
We have always worked directly with both families and au pairs - as a sending and receiving agency. Since we did not often work with partner agencies in other countries, then there was no compulsion to join BAPAA to show our credentials. We recognise that families place a lot of importance on agencies following a code of practice, so we are glad to join and be part of things.
We think our standards are the highest in the industry - so we hope we can do our part to build positively on the reputation of the au pair sector in the United Kingdom.
