What is an au pair?

An au pair is usually a young person, either female or male, who provides live-in care to the children of a welcoming host family overseas as part of a cultural exchange. You’ll be generously provided with a weekly stipend, your own room in the family home and, typically, two to three meals per day. You may even get the chance to join the family on ski and summer vacations. Being an au pair or nanny abroad gives you the freedom to be more than the average tourist by immersing yourself in a completely new culture and developing valuable life skills. You’ll experience personal growth and maturity, and perhaps learn a new language all whilst having the chance to explore a new country. It’s the perfect opportunity to become a cherished part of a family’s life for years to come, while also getting a genuine sense of what life is like overseas
