Cultural Benefits

Au pairs bring the world to your home and teach your children about a new culture. Soon your little ones will know how to say "Please" and "Thank You" in another language.


Simple Process

Finding quality childcare is one of the most important searches you’ll go through, and AuPairCare is here to help you with the process.

What is an Au Pair?

An au pair is a young adult from another country who lives with your family for a year and provides in-home childcare! Au pairs travel to the U.S. on a cultural exchange, J-1 Visa and provide childcare in exchange for the opportunity to live with an American family. Because au pairs are live-in, they offer greater flexibility, caring for your children at times that accommodate your family's individual schedule. Au pairs can fulfill a variety of childcare-related duties that help your family thrive and grow. For folks who are looking to find a live-in nanny or other childcare provider, hiring an au pair provides cost-effective live-in childcare while bringing an enriching cultural immersion experience into your home.

AuPairCare au pairs coming from overseas start their program year with each other at AuPairCare Connect, a 2-day NYC welcome experience and adventure. This unique experience will help au pairs connect together, with AuPairCare, and with the United States, setting up a terrific start to their program year with their host families, with au pairs feeling confident, connected, and supported.

Over and over, we hear amazing stories from our families and au pairs about what an au pair really is:
