See how GreatAuPair USA works

Affordable childcare has never been so simple


Apply online. The first step is to register at by clicking on the "Join Free" tab at the top. Then fill out the online form and select the "Au Pair" option when asked what you are seeking. If you are eligible, you will be directed to continue with your Host Family application.


Before your Host Family application can be reviewed and accepted, you'll need to purchase a $60 subscription on the website, which gives you the ability to communicate with and interview the J-1 eligible au pairs.


Once you've narrowed down your list, you can add au pairs as favorites by clicking the green plus icon on their profiles. This will send an email to the au pair to let her know you're interested. Au pairs will be able to respond to you directly to confirm whether or not they're equally as interested.


Use our proprietary FastMatch system to easily narrow your search to find the best au pairs for your family.


Meanwhile a GreatAuPair Local Childcare Coordinator will contact you to schedule an in-home interview and go over any questions you may have.


We encourage you to Skype with your favorite au pair applicants at least twice before finalizing your match.


Once you have matched with your au pair, you can choose your au pair's arrival date as early as three weeks out.
