How can an Au Pair benefit your family?

Agent Au Pair provides flexible, reliable in-home child care and the opportunity for long-term cultural exchange for families and their children.

Hosting an au pair is a cost effective childcare solution. Unlike hiring a nanny or attending daycare, having an au pair provides you with a set number of childcare hours each week. Au pair offers an experience that you won't receive from regular childcare because it includes a rewarding cultural exchange experience. Your family will be exposed to a different culture, traditions, and language.

An au pair can be described as a family member, friend, caregiver, academic tutor, and household helper.

How can your family benefit from an au pair?

  • Affordable Childcare
    For a weekly cost of approximately $355, families can make a consistent schedule for the au pair to work.
  • Assist with household chores
    Help with childcare chores around the house, such as: preparing meals, grocery shopping, doing the child(ren) laundry, helping pick up after the child(ren), driving to activities, ect.
  • A Cultural Experience
    Having an au pair in your home allows your family to take part in a rewarding cultural exchange and gives you exposure to different languages and traditions.
  • Childcare that fits around your schedule
    Live-in childcare that is flexible around your family's needs. Families can schedule their au pair, up to 45 hours a week, based on when they need their childcare help.
  • Experienced Au Pairs
    All of our au pairs have at least 200 hours of childcare experience and go through a rigorous screening process, background check, and interview to become an au pair.
    When our au pairs arrive in the country, they attend our Au Pair Training School , where they review child development training and child safety training prior to arriving to your home. This gives our families the peace of mind that their au pairs are well-qualified to care for their children.
