Loving and caring Au Pairs from Around the world
Au Pairs are young people from all over the world who join American host families, providing up to 45 hours of loving childcare per week, while sharing new cultures and languages. Au Pairs live as members of their host families, embracing their role as a dependable caregiver.

Hosting an Au Pair is a rewarding and enriching cultural experience for the entire family. You and your children will have the opportunity to embrace another culture right in your own home. Your family’s view of the world will expand through sharing language, culture and customs.

Why CHI Au Pair

CHI’s Au Pairs undergo a thorough screening process, including personal interviews, previous childcare experience evaluation, psychometric testing, criminal background checks and confirmed character reference checks. 

CHI’s Au Pairs love children and are excited to share their cultural heritage with their host family and to become a part of the daily family life.
