For more information please read THE AU PAIR EXCHANGE PROGRAM BROCHURE. After the family reviews the host family qualifications,  the family can register and apply online. Once the family has registered and completed the online application,  Go Au Pair will open the personal portal and the family will get the access to our advance Host Family Community, where the family can view hundreds of au pair profiles.

All Au Pairs are screened, personally interviewed and meet regulatory requirements to qualify for the J1 visa Au Pair program. These regulations include background checks, minimum High School education, minimum hours of childcare experience, verified childcare references and more. All Au Pairs are required to have a minimum number of years of childcare experience.

In addition, Go Au Pair is pleased to welcome new Host Families hosting an out-of-country Au Pair in the Philadelphia and Bucks County area with a “Locals Only” Discount. Those who match with an Au Pair from Go Au Pair within 90 days of applying will be eligible to receive $750 off program fees and pay no application fee!
