Au pairs are internationally minded young adults with child care experience who live and work in a new culture providing loving childcare to a welcoming host family. An au pair doesn’t just work for a host family, they become a real part of the family, building a valuable relationship that often lasts long after the program has ended.
Host families provide au pairs with a safe home, a private room, meals, and a stipend, as well as share their culture, lifestyle, and tradition. Outside of the family, au pairs have opportunities to take classes, make new friends, and travel in their spare time.
