What is an Au Pair?

An au pair is a young woman or man between the ages of 18-26 from another country, who has a genuine love for children and is willing to share their culture with your family. They have practical and verified childcare experience, have secondary education experience, speak English and possess a driver’s license. Au pairs are enthusiastic and mature with a natural desire to travel abroad to learn about other cultures and share their own. You have the flexibility to set the au pair’s schedule as your au pair will be living with your family. We have a wide selection of au pairs from different countries. As the host family, you are able to select an au pair based on your family’s needs; language, age, and gender are up to you to decide.

Here are some of the benefits of hosting an au pair:
  • Childcare duties: you are able to determine what kind of help you need with your children. An au pair’s responsibilities include childcare and light housekeeping related to your children.
  • Au Pair Benefits: Find out how an au pair can benefit your family.
  • Program Affordability: Learn more about Agent Au Pair’s Program and how surprisingly affordable it is to host an au pair.
  • Au Pair Matching: Find out about our Exclusive Matching policy.  Ultimately, the choice is up to you.
