Childcare you can trust like family

Thanks for your interest in Cultural Care Au Pair! We appreciate our host family referrals and we're here to help you learn if hosting an au pair is right for you. Au pairs are young adults from overseas who live with you as a family member and provide culturally enriching childcare. Families gain peace of mind knowing their children are well-cared for and loved by someone who becomes like an older sibling.

The largest selection of au pairs in the U.S.

Cultural Care Au Pair has the largest number of available candidates, all of whom must undergo a multi-step screening process. Meet some of our au pairs below:

Andrea, 25, from Mexico
“I enjoy taking care of children because they are fun, real, and always smart. They are also learning new things about life 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 one soon!”
Laryssa, 23, from Brazil
“I decided to become an au pair because since I was 9 years old, when my mother put me in an English course, I fell in love with the language. And over time, this wonderful country—it’s not just a place but a dream. I have all the love, affection and dedication to take care of your children and I will always do my best to have a good relationship at work and as a family.”
Natálie, 20, from Czechia
“I am a responsible, friendly, active person and 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!”
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.”
Syrine, 18, from France
“I am very, very happy and grateful to have this opportunity. I love to discover new cultures and I hope to discover this with you! Throughout my young life I have always cared for children and I have always loved them. I think that sometimes you can learn a lot about life from them. They breathe the joy of life and fun and it is a pure happiness.”

We are here to help you

During your search for an au pair, your Matching Specialist will work with you to find candidates for you based on your criteria or simply act as a resource for help or advice. After you’re matched with an au pair, you’ll have support throughout the year from your local representative and Account Manager. 

Matching Specialist
Your Matching Specialist is responsible for helping you find and interview au pair candidates until you find your final match. They will talk with you to understand your family’s specific needs, search for candidates on your behalf, and guide you through the matching and interview process.
Local representative
Your local representative lives in your community and supports you and your au pair during the year. They will complete an in-home interview with your family before your au pair arrives, conduct an orientation after your au pair’s arrival to your home, and check in with you on a monthly basis. They may also help with the matching process.
Account Manager
Your Account Manager is available to answer all general questions about the program—including those related to your registration, au pair match, finances, host family account U.S. State Department regulations, and more.
