We Focus On The Caregiver. We Know What Families Want.
We help thousands of caregivers to get sponsored and hired abroad – without paying agency fees. We know that having a polished resume, the right training and interview preparation makes all the difference. We are not an agency, we are not hired by employers and we do not charge placement fees to applicants. More importantly, we provide caregivers with the tools, resources and 1-on-1 help to show an employer “their very best.” We also submit the applications for you, as we know that access to technology can be a challenge. We believe that helping caregivers help themselves is the key to bringing quality care to families worldwide.
“I started KidcooverPrep out of a passion for helping caregivers to get hired, without paying agency fees. I am also the founder of a licensed Canadian agency and have a strong understanding of what families are looking for in applicants. KidcooverPrep is not an agency and provides career services and training to caregivers worldwide and the professional support to get sponsored or hired directly. Our company is committed to quality and we take a hands-on approach to supporting our caregivers. To our caregivers across the world: We believe in you. We value you. We care about you.” – Marla Brock, CEO
