Ukrainian Au Pairs

Ukrainian Au PairUkraine is approximately the size of Texas and is the second largest country in Europe. The country's total population is over 45 million. There is a large emphasis on education in Ukraine and over 90 percent of our Ukrainian Au Pairs placed in the U.S. either have a college degree or were enrolled in college prior to starting their Au Pair program.

Ukrainian is the official language, but Russian is also widely spoken. All of our Au Pairs from Ukraine speak Ukrainian, Russian and English. It is common to find Ukrainian Au Pairs who also speak a fourth language, which is typically German.

While about half of our Ukrainian Au Pairs in the U.S. have  experience with infants, all of these Au Pairs have experience with children in the 5-10 year age group. Au Pairs from UkraineMap of Ukraine typically gain child care experience through babysitting and tutoring. 

What do Host Parents say about their Au Pairs from Ukraine?

Pam has hosted 6 Au Pairs through Go Au Pair. Pam's most recent Au Pair, Anna, who is from Ukraine, just finished an extension (2nd year) with her family.

How well did your Au Pair assimilate into your home?

"Anna is a lovely young woman who assimilated easily into our home."

What cultural differences did you encounter?

"She is very quiet and follows directions in a precise manner. I have the sense, however, that in the Ukraine, independent thought is not encouraged much, so Anna is reluctant to make decisions on her own. She places high value on education and is extremely careful with money, because life is much harder in the Ukraine than in the United States."

Would you ever choose another Au Pair from Ukraine?

"Certainly. The choice of an Au Pair depends on the individual, not the country."
