Why do young adults want to become Au Pairs?

Another common question many new host families ask is, “Why do young adults want to become Au Pairs and leave behind their families, friends and sometimes a good job?”

Au Pairs participate in the Au Pair program for professional and personal reasons.  All of them came to the USA as the Au Pairs because they love kids and want to be part of their life.

Many Au Pairs are looking for a valuable experience for their future career in a child care related field. They want to experience life in the American family, learn a new culture and share own culture with others.  follow

A common reason of  participating in the Au Pair program is the opportunity to improve their English skills. Many of au pairs are looking to fulfill a dream of living the U.S. and attending an American College. The Au Pair Amber from Australia took classes in Princeton University.

Many Au Pairs from the Au Pair cluster in Philadelphia, Bucks County and NJ said that they wanted to get away from home, live independently, see the world, get to know different lifestyles and meet new people. I found that many Au Pairs love to travel and they visit many new places when they are here.Au pair list

Some Au Pairs choose the Au Pair program because that they want to escape bad economic and social situations in their countries, save up some money and send home some money to help their families.

I think  most of them become the Au Pairs because they love kids and also are hungry for adventure.

Au Pairs shared quality time together.

After fancy dinner at Casablanca restaurant, the Au Pairs Cherry, Cosima, Adriana, the Local Area Representative Polina and I shared quality time together.

Love Go Au Pair

We ate delicious desserts and talked about Au pair’s Education,  future events and shared our Au Pairs experience of living in the US with our very special host families. Everyone was happy to share because we all have super nice host families, great friends, the Go Au Pair’s support and enjoy special time in the US.

We had a great time together, laughing,  taking photos, playing with a bubble machine and looking around the pretty backyard.

Host families consider Chinese Au Pairs for their infants and toddlers.

The new Au Pair Diana from China just joined the Philadelphia and NJ cluster of Go Au Pair agency this week. Her host family from NJ has two month old and two year old sons and had considered a Chinese Au Pair.Au Pair from China

Families, who have Chinese Au Pairs, say that they are calm and patient and it is a good childcare choice for infants and toddles. Many host families choose Au Pairs from China for their infants because Chinese Au Pairs are mature and have experience working with babies. Almost all Chinese Au Pairs (93%) of Go Au Pair’s Au Pairs are over the age of 21.

Most of Chinese Au Pairs are infant qualified and have experience in working with the group of babies.  They are specially doing great with infants because  it is a very common in China to work in daycare or orphanage before becoming an Au Pair. Chinese Au Pairs are usually cautious and heath oriented, they can help with establishing routine naps, meals, and bedtime and keeping safe and healthy home environment for the baby.
