training for Au Pairs

Au Pair Training

All AuPairCare au pairs arrive at your home trained and ready to provide exceptional childcare. The AuPairCare au pair you select for your family has hundreds of hours of childcare experience, carefully checked references, and a proven commitment to caring for children. Because safety and quality care are our top priorities, all au pairs receive training before they come to your home.

Our au pair training program is designed to provide au pairs with an introduction to their year in America, and to provide practical training and education about childcare and safety topics. Au pairs conduct their Academy training online through interactive courses and webinars and fly directly to your home airport. All au pairs caring for children under the age of two are required to have a minimum of 200 hours experience with that age group. From pre-departure virtual learning toon-the-job safety reminders, au pairs receive superior teaching and continued reinforcement of their skills while on program.

Additional Au Pair Training Courses

AuPairCare offers additional online training courses to train au pairs in topics important to diverse families. No matter what your childcare priorities are, AuPairCare has a number of training plans and courses to fit families.
