Au Pairs vs Other Forms of Child Care

As a live-in childcare provider, an Au Pair provides a unique cultural exchange experience and offers unmatched convenience for a family seeking childcare. Don’t be limited by your daycare center or nannies anymore; from budget, skills to schedule and more – with Go Au Pair, you choose what is most important to your family.

Choose Skills:

All our Au Pairs must complete a 32-hour training course. Many are CPR and first aid certified and most are infant qualified with more than 200 hours of infant care experience. Take comfort knowing that your Au Pair is properly trained and prepared for unexpected situations.

Choose Schedule:

Create the schedule that best fits your needs and have the flexibility to change it as needed. Flexible scheduling, up to 45 hours a week, 10 hours a day, and live-in care means no more rushed mornings and frantic after-work evenings.

Choose Budget:

Starting at about $7.98 an hour, the cost of child care doesn’t change even if you have more than one child. Add in our personalized payment plans and protection program and you have a truly flexible and affordable childcare solution.

Choose Lifestyle:

Go beyond basic childcare: your Au Pair provides homework help, helps with meals and participates in the lives and activities of your children. Your Au Pair is more than a babysitter; they are an extended member of your family.

Choose Culture:

Whether it is learning a new language, experiencing native cuisines or introducing your family to different traditions and customs, your Au Pair will immerse your family in a new and exciting foreign culture.
