What is an Au Pair?


Au pairs are young men and women between the ages of eighteen and twenty-six who come from around the world to provide live-in childcare and cultural exchange for American families.

Au pairs provide up to 45 hours a week of loving and affordable live-in childcare for your family, while also introducing new cultures and languages to your children.

“Au Pair” is a French term meaning “on par” which aptly describes the relationship between an au pair and his/her host family. Au pairs live as a member of their host family, not as an employee.

The CHI Au Pair USA program is unique, and regulated by the U.S. Department of State. You can be ensured of high standards and comprehensive support for au pairs and their host families.

What is an Educare Au Pair?

The EduCare Au Pair program is similar to the traditional Au Pair program. EduCare is a wonderful alternative for families with school-aged children who require childcare both before and after school.

At only $295 a week, the EduCare Au Pair program is an attractive cost effective choice. EduCare au pairs live as a member of your family and provide 30 hours of childcare a week.
