Do they eat French fries in France? Do kids in Brazil play soccer?

Your kids are naturally curious about the world. An au pair provides an opportunity to learn about the world without leaving the comfort of your home. The US government created the au pair program to promote mutual understanding through cultural exchanges. Your kids will love learning about the world through the eyes of your au pair and each of you will benefit from this cultural exchange.
