AuPairCare believes that learning is a continuous process. From pre-departure virtual learning, to a hands-on curriculum and on-the-job safety reminders, our au pairs receive the superior training and continued reinforcement of their skills while on program. The 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 also receive rigorous training before they come to your home. Safety CareTM, 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.
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. AuPairCare also offers in-person and virtual enhanced training options for toddlers and infants. Our in-person Standard Program, Infant Specialized, and Toddler Care au pairs all receive hands-on training at our Au Pair Academy located in New Jersey before arriving to your home. Virtual Academy au pairs conduct their Academy training online through interactive courses and webinars and fly directly to your home airport. As a host family, you can also select our from two additional virtual trainings, All About Toddlers and All About Infants. Similar to our in-person program option, these two trainings lead au pairs through advanced, age-specific child care with videos, quizzes, resources, and include a live, virtual workshop with an AuPairCare Academy trainer
