Find Au Pairs in the San Francisco California Bay Area
Finding reliable childcare for your family can be challenging. If you are looking for a childcare solution that is flexible and affordable, hosting an au pair offers safe, personalized care all in the comfort and security of your own home.
At AuPairCare, we believe that every family deserves quality, affordable childcare. As one of the first au pair agencies designated by the U.S. Department of State, we’ve placed more than 50,000 au pairs and earned an A+ Rating from the Better Business Bureau.
Affordable Childcare in the San Francisco Bay Area
Hosting an au pair is surprisingly affordable. Full-time childcare in San Francisco can range from $1,200 - $3,000 per month, even before adding in the extra fees for multiple children, late penalties and other hidden add-ons.
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. And because you set your au pair's working hours, you don't need to worry about rushing home to pick up your kids to avoid that extra hour from the babysitter, nanny or daycare.
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.
