Au pairs are caring and committed, adventurous and educated young people, ages 18-26 years, from many different countries worldwide. They are eager to experience American culture while sharing their own unique backgrounds. All au pairs have childcare experience and undergo a multi-step screening and training process before joining families as live-in childcare providers.
Au pair Stories
While all au pairs share an interest in children and basic requirements and experience, they bring with them very different backgrounds, skills, interests and personalities. The au pairs below are already successfully matched and enjoying their time with their American host families.
A view from our offices
Cultural Care Au Pair recruits au pairs from over 20 countries worldwide. Cultural Care has invested in a network of established offices and staff in our recruitment countries so we can implement the highest screening standards in the industry. Our recruitment leaders, many of them former au pairs themselves, work with au pair applicants to set realistic expectations and ensure they have the right motivation for joining an American family. Every applicant is interviewed in person.
“We look for more than just the right experience. During the interview, Cultural Care staff members are assessing each candidate’s maturity and their motivation for becoming an au pair.”
– Patricia Arguello, Country Director, Latin America
Au pair Qualifications
All Cultural Care au pairs are thoroughly screened in their home countries. Before arriving to your home in the U.S., they complete an intensive online training course and spend 4 days at our Au Pair Training School in New York reviewing child safety and development and earning a 2-year adult and pediatric CPR/AED and First Aid certification by American Red Cross instructors.
