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 as little as $367 per week. Regardless of how many children you have or how old they are!

Pricing should be simple to understand, with no hidden or incremental fees.

To make the cost of the au pair program even more manageable, we offer standard and extended payment plan, allowing families to choose a payment option that works best for them and their budget. The example below represents the minimum costs of the Standard Au Pair Program, please call us or try our instant chat for more details and information.

A host family may not pay less than the weekly minimum stipend for each week of the program.
