Au Pairs are a safe, flexible, affordable childcare option. Parents face challenges that simply didn't exist a generation ago. We believe childcare should help make parenthood a little easier. By inviting an AuPairCare au pair into your home, you give your family quality, affordable, live-in childcare – with a cultural twist.

For about $350 a week, you'll receive live-in childcare – up to 45 hours per week, regardless of the number of children in your family.

The local area director is the support system for host families as well as au pairs and make sure the guidelines are followed that an au pair does not work more than 10 hours per day and 45 per week. The flexibility of the program is a big plus for families because when the children are in school or camp, the hours do not count towards the 45 hours per week and a family can use those hours in the evening or weekends for babysitting.
