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.
