Find Au Pairs in the Greater Chicago Area

Busy parents can’t always be around their children, so it’s important to find childcare you can rely on. If flexibility and affordability are important considerations for your family, hosting an au pair can provide your children with quality in-home care that fits your lifestyle.

At AuPairCare, we believe that every family deserves quality, affordable childcare. We work hard to provide you and your au pair with a great experience, which is why we have an A+ Rating from the Better Business Bureau and official designation by the U.S. Department of State.

You'll find that Chicago AuPairCare Area Directors provide the best support in the industry, guiding you through the process of choosing and hosting an au pair. 

Affordable Childcare in Chicago Illinois

Hosting an au pair is surprisingly affordable. Full-time childcare in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs can range dramatically, charging thousands of dollars to care for just one child even before adding in the extra fees for multiple children, late penalties and other hidden costs. 

Meanwhile with AuPairCare, live-in childcare costs about $7.75 per hour or $350 per week. Hosting an au pair costs the same amount, regardless of how many children you have. Au pairs work up to 45 hours a week, all of which can be tailored to your schedule to accommodate after school pick-ups, unexpectedly long commutes, and date nights! Au pairs’ flexible hours allow you to balance work and family life without breaking the bank.

What is an Au Pair?

An au pair is a young adult from another country who lives with your family and cares for your children from your home. All AuPairCare au pairs work 45 hours per week, have extensive childcare experience and speak conversational English.

Finding the Right Au Pair

AuPairCare partners with you to help you chose the right au pair for your family. We do this by carefully screening all our au pairs, and use these factors and more to determine whether an au pair will be a good fit:

  • Childcare Experience
  • Specialized Training (Infants, Children with special needs, etc.)
  • Nationality and Native Language
  • Personality, Hobbies and Interests
