Countries and Cultural Exchange

Cultural exchange is the heart of our au pair program. Au pairs are so much more than a live-in nanny; simply by being around other cultures, your little ones become more adaptable, global citizens.  To help you navigate the many new cultures we bring to the U.S., we’ve created a series of blogs to highlight au pair countries & cultural knowledge, along with great stories and ideas on how to introduce your au pair to the United States.
