What is an au pair?

Your third hand, an extra hour, and peace of mind for any curve ball that's thrown into your schedule.

Who can be an au pair?

Au pairs are caring foreign nationals between the ages of 18 and 26 who are interested in providing childcare while experiencing American culture. Each au pair is fully screened and trained by GreatAuPair to provide flexible and dependable care. They speak English, have a driver's license, and can stay in the US for up to two years.

What can an au pair do?

In exchange for room, board, and a weekly stipend, your au pair will work for up to 45 hours a week helping you calm temper tantrums, conquering your kid's laundry, assisting with morning and bedtime routines, whipping up kids' meals and school lunches, solving burning math questions, transporting kids to school and activities, playing and having fun, and most importantly providing you with the satisfaction of knowing you can count on the best childcare possible.
