Childcare you can trust like family


Welcome an au pair into your home and your heart.

Choosing the right childcare is not an easy decision. Because as parents, we don’t ever want to compromise on quality, flexibility and trust when finding care for the most important people in the world. And these days it’s even more challenging to find reliable care on a schedule that works for your family. Hosting a Cultural Care au pair gives thousands of families across the country those very important benefits. We invite you to learn more about who our au pairs are, what they do, and why more families than ever are joining our program.

“We absolutely love our au pair and couldn’t imagine life without her. Childcare, family bonding, and cultural enrichment all in one shot. After struggling with daycare and babysitters, we no longer worry or stress. It’s amazing to have consistency!”

— Shannon, host mom in RI

“Our experience with Karima has been so wonderful—there’s just an extra level of comfort knowing that your kids are being cared for by someone who genuinely loves them and doesn’t approach it as just another job.”

— Chieze, host mom in MA

“Cultural Care Au Pair made it easy to find a wonderful fit for our family and Giuli has been incredible. With her, we have achieved some work-life balance in our lives by having more flexibility. I’ve told others, it was like letting a little air out of the balloon—there’s no longer so much pressure on my shoulders all the time.”

— Rachel, host mom in NY

“After initially starting with nanny care, we turned to Cultural Care Au Pair so that we could have an au pair live with us as part of our family. Laura joined our family over 2 years ago to care for our then 1-year-old twins. Laura has helped them to see joy in the world from music and dancing to coloring and art to playing in the park. With Laura’s guidance, they have great vocabulary, having learned English and Spanish.”

— David, host dad in FL

“Having a global family means that our children will grow up with a bigger view of the world! Our goal is for our kids to grow a global mindset, hearts of service, and to embrace all cultures.”

— Nicole, host mom in CA

What is an au pair?

Au pairs are caregivers from overseas who are excited to be part of an American family. Au pairs become like older siblings to their host kids and trusted members of the household that host parents can depend on.

Au pair vs. nanny vs. daycare

Hosting an au pair offers unique advantages to more traditional childcare options including greater flexibility, one-on-one attention and coverage during illness, school vacations and snow days.

The process

We offer families advanced matching tools and personalized support to find the right au pair for you. We also give families the ability to speak with multiple au pair candidates.

Andrea, 25, from Mexico
“I enjoy taking care of children because they are fun, real, and always smart. They are learning new things every day, so I enjoy being part of that. I think all people matter—we're all in the same world for a reason. The most special people in my life are my family and I hope to be a part of another soon!”
Julian, 18, from Switzerland
“I have cared for children since I was 13 years old. I used to entertain my little sister, and I also started to care for my little cousins. I also trained a youth soccer team. It's been one of my dreams to live in the U.S. I really love the culture, the sports, the cities, the nature and, most importantly, the people.”
Naty, 20, from Czech Republic
“If you ask my friends about my personality, they would probably say that I am cheerful, loving and I always try to be helpful. I would like to cook for you traditional Czech dishes, which you certainly never had. I believe I will build as strong relationship with your little ones as I have with my sister!”
Mosa, 24, from South Africa
“I have 5 siblings: 2 younger sisters and 3 older sisters. I have a very loving relationship to all of them. We are foodies so we bond over food most of the time! I would describe me as a reliable, friendly, positive and open-minded. In my free time I love reading and playing different kinds of sports.”
Ana, 24, from Brazil
“I always had many dreams: go to college, learn new languages, experience new cultures and places, build my house and have a family. One day I will make all these dreams come true. I decided to start by becoming an au pair to improve my English and take care of children—it's something I really like.”
Ola, 24, from Poland
“I would love to become your au pair and meet your family! Just now I came from Switzerland where I stayed 3 months as an au pair and I loved the time I spent there! I have been traveling in different places abroad, it was always interesting for me to meet new people and get to know their way of living.”
