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.

Au Pair Country & Culture Highlight: Brazil

Many young people come from Brazil to join host families as an au pair. Much like in the U.S., Brazilian culture is a melting pot. Portuguese is the primary language, and Brazil has African, Amerindian and European influences. They all help make up a rich and diverse national culture that champions family life and fun!

Brazilian Au Pair and Child Celebrating World Cup

Cultural Exchange Brings Brazil 2014 World Cup to America

Children begin expressing interest in different cultures at a very young age. Hosting an au pair exposes your children to ethnically diverse and historically rich heritages. It also helps them become more globally and culturally aware. The 2014 Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) World Cup Brazil™ is a wonderful time to take advantage of your au pair’s background!
