QUALITY LIVE-IN CHILDCARE. Program Costs & Discounts

Program Costs

Cost is one factor that weighs heavily in choosing a childcare solution for most families. According to recent reports, childcare costs in the United States have increased dramatically in recent years. Choosing Au Pair 4 Me childcare and hosting an au pair gives you so much more than a nanny or daycare provider. Your family gets quality live-in childcare up to 45 hours per week for an average cost of $355 per week. Regardless of how many children you have or how old they are, the average cost of Au Pair 4 Me childcare is still only $355 per week. To make the cost of the au pair program even more manageable, we offer standard and extended payment plans, allowing families to choose a payment option that works best for them and their budget.
