Culturally rich, yet so affordable

When you host an au pair, you receive full-time, live-in childcare for a low average weekly rate of $356. This is an exceptional value, especially if you have more than one child. At GreatAuPair, we offer the highest quality of service while keeping our program fees easy to understand, and most importantly, affordable.
