Choose the program option that best fits the needs of your family. All of our au pairs speak conversational English and provide live-in childcare for 45 hours per week, up to 10 hours per day.  

  • Standard Program

    • Our standard au pair program is a year-long experience welcoming a reliable and loving au pair into your home. From babies to preteens our au pairs are experienced childcare providers. Standard programs are offered virtually and in-person.

    • The infant training program provides au pairs with additional education including infant safety (CPR certification in-person only), developmental milestones, and baby sign language. The virtual training option, All About Infants, is available for Virtual Academy au pairs. Our in-person Infant Specialized program will be made available for au pairs arriving in 2021.

Au Pairs vs. Nannies vs. Daycare

    • Deciding on the right childcare solution for your family takes thought and time. There are pros and cons to every option - but we believe the benefits of au pair childcare are hard to find elsewhere. One host mom describes the experience she’s had with her au pair.

      She’s not just a childcare provider; she’s a member of our family. She’s my parenting partner- Host Mom Marisa

      How else do au pairs compare to nannies and daycares? We did the research on location, adult to child ratio, and more.
