About Go Au Pair
Go Au Pair has been providing quality, child care for over 30 years. Beginning as a nanny company in 1984, Go Au Pair soon expanded to include Au Pairs and was one of the original Au Pair Program sponsors designated by the department of State in 1989. Go Au Pair has representatives in over 50 countries on 6 different continents and in over 65 American cities with headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah.
As an Au Pair agency, Go Au Pair provides families affordable child care solutions through various Au Pair programs. Au Pair child care is a cultural exchange program with a child care component. Parents can give their children the opportunity to learn from another culture and language, while receiving personalized care.
Go Au Pair strives to promote meaningful global family relationships, inspire personal enrichment and fun.
Our Host Families and Au Pairs become lifelong friends. Our Au Pairs appreciate thoughtfulness and support from their Host Parents and thrive off the sibling-like love they receive from the Host Children. Our Host Parents are delighted to partner with the Au Pair in caring for the kids and are pleased to have another role model in the home. Our Host Kids are thrilled to spend time with their “big brother” or “big sister” and excel in the nurturing environment the Au Pair creates.
Our Host Families and Au Pairs inspire each other. Host Parents describe their Au Pair as “a breath of fresh air” and relish in the open mindedness, enthusiasm and zest for life their Au Pair introduces. Host Kids learn foreign languages, games, songs, holidays and food from their Au Pair. Our Au Pairs improve their English, experience American culture, actively participate in daily family life, and learn more about themselves than they ever expected.
Our Host Families and Au Pairs have so much fun! Exploring new neighborhood places, trying new foods, singing and dancing, movie nights, pizza nights, family vacations, birthdays, holidays, adventures, dinner time, playing games, inside jokes, wrestling, baseball, soccer, swimming, meeting extended family, laughing, telling stories, even homework and housework are fun with the Au Pair Program.
Through the Au Pair Program, Go Au Pair fosters wildly successful cultural child care experiences.
Every day, the Go Au Pair Community embodies the spirit of the Au Pair Program. For us, this means committing to success, celebrating family love, seeking cultural experiences, cherishing personal growth, having fun, and trusting in our team.
The Go Au Pair Community is dedicated to success.
Families choose Go Au Pair because they are committed to their children’s success and to their own success as parents. They want the success of a family-like love provided to nurture their kids. Our Host Parents are dedicated to their role as parents, seeking the in-home assistance they need to be less stressed, better organized and to have more fun. Our Au Pairs commit to leave their family, friends and home, to travel halfway around the world, to live with people for a year they have met only through a webcam. They commit themselves to new language, new food, new surroundings, new experiences, new challenges, and a whole new level of awesomeness. The rest of the Go Au Pair Community, our representatives around the world and around the U.S. and our staff at Headquarters, are dedicated to the success of our Families and Au Pairs helping them to achieve their goals.
The Au Pair Program is built on family.
Family is the basic unit of our culture and during their time in the U.S. Au Pairs see first-hand the values we teach to our children, the values most important to Host Parents and experience the love of their “second family” or “American family”. An Au Pair becomes a member of the family as Host Parents and Children open their home, their community and their hearts in welcome. In return, Host Families discover the capacity to grow their family love beyond anything traditional child care offers. Go Au Pair’s headquarters staff and representatives work like a family and we are grateful for the opportunity to share our company’s family values with our participants.
The Go Au Pair Community is curious about culture.
Our participants and our company are excited for the opportunity to learn about each other! We choose to go beyond stereotypes, to leave our comfort zones, to experience for ourselves first-hand, to examine our own cultures, and to explore with openness the culture of another person. We choose to understand (even if we don’t always agree).We are passionate about “American culture”, showing it, sharing in it, and reshaping it with every Au Pair experience.
The Au Pair Experience is a journey of personal growth.
Go Au Pair is merely here to witness and provide a few pointers along the way. For an Au Pair, this is a profoundly life-changing experience that launches them into the rest of their life. They face challenges, small setbacks and mistakes but through the support of their Host Family and Go Au Pair they find their own strength and courage to overcome obstacles and grow. Through the help of an Au Pair our Host Families are afforded the opportunity to live their best life; conquering parenting, careers, marriages, household tasks, personal interests and fun.
Have we mentioned yet that Go Au Pair is fun?
Being an Au Pair in America is fun. Meeting people, travel, daily life with your Host Family, local activities, eating, school, it is all fun. Having an Au Pair in your home is fun. New conversations, new traditions, new zest for exploring, new foods, new games, new laughter, it is all fun. All seriousness aside, we value fun and encourage enjoyment and amusement among participants, representatives and employees alike.
But we couldn’t enjoy the fun of the Au Pair Program without also honoring our responsibilities and trusting in the global team work required to make each experience a success. Every member of the Go Au Pair Community has clear responsibilities and Au Pairs, Host Families, International Partners, Local Area Representatives and Headquarters staff are held accountable for their duties and commitments with the program. We pride ourselves on integrity, understanding, ownership, expectations and working together for the spirit of the program.
