The Au Pair Experience: Au Pair Jobs in the United States
Do you enjoy caring for children? Have you dreamed about spending a year in the United States, living with an American family and improving your English? Become an AuPairCare au pair and get ready to have a rewarding year caring for children and living in the United States.
For more than 25 years, AuPairCare has placed more than 50,000 au pairs with carefully screened American families. To help you make the most of your time as an au pair in America, AuPairCare provides every au pair with numerous benefits and opportunities to study and travel, along with a great cultural experience.
As an official au pair placement agency designated by the United States Department of State, AuPairCare will sponsor your J-1 au pair visa, organize your travel to and from the United States, and provide you with training and support throughout the year.
As an au pair, you can spend one year - with the option to extend your au pair position for another 6, 9 or 12 months - living with an American family and caring for their children. In your free time, you can meet new friends and experience life in the U.S.A.
To become an au pair, you need to be between 18 and 26 years of age, have experience caring for children, speak English, and be a high school graduate, among other qualifications. And most importantly, all applicants for au pair jobs must love children and enjoy spending time with them!

Au Pair Care’s proprietary Infant Specialized Training utilizes a hands-on approach to train au pairs in infant safety, the “American way” of infant care giving, infant stimulation and development. Infant Specialized au pairs are certified in infant CPR and first aid by the American Heart Association and also receive instruction in infant sign language and baby massage. This additional infant care training will help nurture your baby's healthy growth and encourage language development.
