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 now, with the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s even more challenging to find safe and 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.

"Cultural Care Au Pair has been a fantastic experience and a blessing to our lives. Knowing that we have a trustworthy person in our home giving attention to our children provides us with a sense of peace. We look forward to continuing on the program for as long as we are eligible."

— Jessica Eccles, host mom in Colorado

"Jessica and I are both working professionals. We were looking for a loving, patient au pair who would care deeply for our son. Our au pair Paloma has exceeded all expectations and is the kindest, most caring person. She is truly a part of our family. We have shared with multiple families to join Cultural Care because of our wonderful experience with Paloma."

— John Jung, host dad in Washington

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.

Ale, 24, from Colombia
"Hello future family! I am a person with a lot of energy, I love children they are very smart, sweet, and amazing. I am aware of the responsibility you are giving me, and I want to give you confidence that your babies will be very well cared for. I hope it is a year where we have a good time together!"
Bianca, 21, from South Africa
"I am currently in between courses studying Information Technology, and I decided to go for a new experience by becoming an au pair. I love spending time with children. I enjoy taking care of them and playing with them. The most exciting part about living with a host family is the prospect of learning a new culture and building new relationships with the family members."
Beatrice, 24, from Italy
"I consider myself a very sweet, responsible, sunny and open-minded person. I love children, I love their purity and goodness. I have experience with children of all ages; I help them with their homework, I cook for them, I pick them up from school, I take them to different activities.. and obviously we play!"
Tea, 18, from Sweden
"Living in another country have been a dream as long as I can remember and to do that together with children is just a perfect opportunity. I love to spend time with children, and I have done it a lot, both with my younger sister and also as an assisting equestrian teacher and coach at my equestrian club. I am excited to get to know you and myself even more during my year in the USA!"
Neus, 22, from Spain
"I've always had little cousins, so when my aunts and uncles were busy and needed a babysitter, I was the one who helped them. When I started university, I volunteered taking care of kids who had problems at home. I consider myself a fun, optimistic and friendly person, with a lot of love to offer and eager to pass on my knowledge to the future children I care for"
