Au Pair In America
Other Ideas: Parenthood.com; StrollerTime Fitness; Exceptional Parent Magazine; Feakes Associates; Children’s Bereavement Resource Center
Au Pair in America brings eager young adults from around the world, ages 18-26, to join your family and care for your children in a cultural exchange experience.
Au Pairs and EduCare companions are international visitors who travel to the U.S. on a J-1 Visitor Exchange Visa for 12 months to acquire a better understanding and appreciation of American life while living with an American family and caring for their young children. They can become full-fledged family members, sharing a cultural exchange experience, which often leads to a lasting relationship with the host family.
The Au Pair/Companion is not a professionally trained child care worker or capable of running an entire household when parents are absent for business or personal travel. Responsibility for the welfare of the children always remains with the parents.
Au Pair Child Care Extraordinaire
In addition to requirements to be an Au Pair in America, Au Pair Extraordinaire candidates either have completed a full-time, two-year academic course in child care or are at least 20 years old and have two years full-time experience as a nanny, child care provider or nursery school teacher. The supply of these special au pairs is extremely limited, so apply early to avoid disappointment.
Hosting an Au Pair
If you are interested to learn about another culture by hosting a young person who, in turn, provides child care, then one of the Au Pair in America program options can meet your expectations.
