EurAupair Intercultural Live-in Child Care Programs
Our au pairs are from various countries in Europe, South America, Asia and South Africa; between 18 and 26 years of age and arrive in the US with a proper J-1 exchange visitor visa valid for 12 months.
In accordance with the US Department of State au pairs are allowed to provide child care for up to 45 hours per week, no more than 10 hours a day. Regular au pairs receive a minimum weekly stipend of $195.75 and are required to complete at least 6 credits or its equivalent at an accredited post-secondary educational institution.
Infant care au pairs, also in the Regular program, are participants qualified to care for children between 3 months and two years of age. These au pairs have a minimum of 200 hours of documented infant care experience.

Au Pair Par Expérience® Program
For those families wanting a more experienced au pair, EurAupair goes an extra step with its "Au Pair par Expérience" program. Through this program, host families choose from a pool of au pair candidates who have additional experience and/or more formal training in child care.
To become a part of the Au Pair par Expérience program, au pair candidates must meet the following requirements:
Have at least 2 years of full time child care experience or be a certified child care provider or hold a kindergarten or elementary school teaching degree.
- Be at least 20 years of age (but no more than 26 years) upon arrival.
- Au pairs in the Au Pair par Expérience program receive pocket money in the amount of $250 per week.
EurAupair Extended Stay Program
For those host families finishing their EurAupair year, the Extended Stay Program offers a welcome alternative to selecting a new au pair. With the Extended Stay Program, you and your au pair can enjoy an additional 6, 9 or 12 months together.
Once you both decide to extend, it's really easy. Approximately three months before your EurAupair au pair is due to return home, you will be sent a EurAupair Extension letter, inviting you to join the EurAupair Extended Stay Program.
