What Is an Au Pair?

An au pair is a pre-screened young adult from abroad who comes to the U.S. to live and work with an American host family. Au pairs provide childcare for the host family in return for room, board, and a weekly stipend. Au pairs spend a year as fully-integrated members of the host family and have the opportunity to extend their time up to an additional 12 months. Hosting an au pair in California gives host parents live-in childcare coverage while offering au pairs a unique opportunity to be fully immersed in American culture right here in California.
