The pros and cons of hosting an Au Pair.

There are so many benefits that Au Pair program can bring to Host Families. The cost of hosting an Au Pair is just $353 per week for 45 hours, or $7.75 per hour and this includes fees paid to the agency and the weekly stipend.

goAUPAIR offers the best selection of quality Au Pairs. They are carefully evaluated, selected, trained and each of our Au Pairs is required to have many hours of childcare experience.

Hosting an Au Pair gives a  Host Family the ability to determine her schedule. A Host Family sets Au Pair’s work hours according to the family’s schedule.

An Au Pair provides assistance with duties related to Host Family children; like preparing meals, tidying up their rooms, and assisting with laundry.

Host Family and children also benefit by learning foreign languages, trying new foods, learning new games and traditions, and generally becoming more understanding of different cultures.

There are some limits like the Au Pair staying with the Host Familiy for a specified amount of time (1-2 years), they work up to 45 hours per week and Au Pairs help only with childcare related duties. It is not for every family.  Please read the post Should I or shouldn’t I? (Host an Au Pair) and watch the movie bellow to make the right decision for your family.
