Host Family Process
Hosting an Au Pair is the only affordable, convenient, live-in solution that loves your kids like you do (except for grandma).
Step 1: It starts with you and your needs.
What is most important to your family? Do you need an Au Pair with great driving skills? An Au Pair
with infant experience? Register and complete your profile to help us help you find an Au Pair that matches your family’s needs.
Step 2: Find the best Au Pair for your family
Search through hundreds of Au Pairs, and do a detailed evaluation of the important aspects of each Au Pair’s profile.
- Childcare experience
- Infant Qualified

Step 3: Au Pair Arrival
The Au Pair Success Workshop
Upon arriving in the United States, our Au Pairs will attend our Au Pair Success Workshop. The Au Pair Success Workshop is specifically crafted to build the skills, confidence and knowledge of every Au Pair to shape their success with their Host Family and the Au Pair program.
Once your Au Pair arrives at your home, you’ll start to see the benefits (and fun) of Au Pair child care, and can help your Au Pair adjust to life in the United States.
“After years of stress and frustration, and many different nannies, we decided to look for an au pair. When Veronika arrived on January 2, 2016 our lives were forever changed. We had no idea that a real life Mary Poppins had just arrived!”
“I can honestly say that bringing her to live with us as our au pair has been the best decision we could possibly have made. She has afforded us so many priceless “intangibles” during her time here that I can’t begin to quantify her contributions to our family.”
Step 4: Having a successful childcare experience
What is an Au Pair success example?
- Your Au Pair and children have formed a life-changing bond
- Your Au Pair becomes a part of the family, and trusted team member for the parents
- You can’t imagine what your life would have been without your Au pair
