When it comes to managing kids, work and a household, even the most organized parents need help. Knowing where to find high quality, affordable childcare can seem like a daunting task. GreatAuPair USA can provide you with a professionally screened and trained international au pair that's expertly matched to your family.

What is an au pair? Au pairs are caring foreign nationals between the ages of 18 and 26 who are interested in providing childcare while experiencing American culture. Our au pairs speak English, have a driver's license and can stay in the U.S. for up to two years. In exchange for room, board and a weekly stipend, your au pair will work up to 45 hours per week providing childcare and related tasks such as:

  • Caring for infants
  • Doing children's laundry
  • Helping with bedtime and morning routines
  • Preparing kids meals and school lunches
  • Helping with homework
  • Driving kids to school and activities
  • Playing and having fun
  • Teaching your kids about another culture and language

But most of all, providing you with the satisfaction of knowing that your children will have someone you can count on to provide the best care possible. Since au pairs come to the U.S. to learn about our culture and to share theirs, you'll be surprised at how quickly your au pair becomes a special member of your family.

Did you know that hosting an au pair is one of the most affordable childcare options available - especially for those families with more than one child? The cost of hosting an au pair averages just $356 a week regardless of how many kids you have. That includes the au pair's travel, insurance, J-1 visa and our full support for the duration of your GreatAuPair USA program.

Our au pairs arrive year-round so get ready to experience a whole new world in childcare. Our highly trained and qualified au pairs are waiting to meet you.
