Au Pair Program Cost

The Au Pair program is a great childcare option for families seeking full-time, live-in childcare. It is not just for the rich and actually costs much less than a nanny. The Au Pair program cost also beats traditional day care because there are no additional fees for siblings. The Au Pair program cost in the US is $8 per hour on average for up to 45 hours per week of child care.


There are many questions about  the Au Pair program cost. The Au Pair stipend  for a standard program set by the Federal Government and is $195.75 per week and also the first $500 toward the costs of classes. The Au Pair program fees vary in the US and depend on the agency. With Go Au Pairs the cost of the standard Au Pair program is $343.21 per week or only $7.63 per hour. This includes everything :  $7195-the agency fees,  $195.75 the Au Pair weekly stipend and $500 educational component. ($195.75 is the minimum amount required by the Department of State. Families and Au Pairs are free to agree upon any amount higher than this minimum.)


Being a Local Area Representative with Go Au Pair for a long time I have met many host families that were confused by the cost.  They thought that in addition to $343.21, they also need to pay $ 195.75 stipend to their Au Pair and/or $500 educational component.  With Go Au Pair the weekly average cost per family is  $343.21 or $7.63 per hour.
