What is an au pair?

An Au Pair is a young adult living abroad with a host family who takes care of their children and provides light housekeeping related to the children in exchange for accommodation and a minimum stipend. Au Pairs are treated as part of the family, joining in family meals and activities. Au Pairs often choose to be an Au Pair for the cultural experience and to improve their language skills.

Au Pair vs. Nanny: What's the difference?

An Au Pair must meet the Au Pair Requirements to participate in a government-sponsored Au Pair Cultural Exchange Program, where local nannies do not. In the U.S., Au Pairs must be between the ages of 18 and 26 with demonstrable childcare experience. Nannies may be much older than Au Pairs. Au Pairs and host families agree to program rules and regulations defined by the government, which are overseen by the Au Pair Agency sponsors. Au Pairs typically don't make a career out of childcare work as nannies more often do. As such, nannies are generally paid more than au pairs. Au Pairs are seeking a cultural experience and want to be part of the family. The relationship between a nanny and a family is typically more of an employer and employee, not governed by an exchange program.

Be an Au Pair in America!

Being an au pair in America or overseas can be a life-changing, cultural experience. If you are between 18 and 26 years old, have childcare experience, and speak English well, then the Au Pair USA Program may be the right adventure for you. Discover the Au Pair Program in USA. Or, for additional experience, there are au pair jobs available around the world.
