What We Offer
Au Pair 4 Me is an agency designated by the U.S. Department of State as an au pair program sponsor that offers American families childcare services that are a great alternative to daycare centers and nannies. The au pair program is an educational and cultural exchange program designed to give foreign nationals a great opportunity to live with an American host family and participate directly in their home life while providing limited childcare services.
Through this program, exchange visitors and host families take part in a mutually rewarding, unique, intercultural opportunity. As au pairs provide live-in childcare they become a part of the host family. The host family will share with them their culture, traditions and language. This is the best solution for American families as they select an au pair who is carefully interviewed and screened by our representatives and who meets all of the requirements. Au Pairs provide up to 45 hours of child care each week including help with household duties related to children. The host family can arrange a weekly schedule based on their individual needs.
