What is an Au Pair?
Au Pairs are:
- 18-26 year-old females (some males apply)
- High school graduates or equivalent, and English speaking (most as a second language)
- Fully insured (medical, travel, personal liability and accidental death coverage)
- Willing to make a 12-month family participation and child care commitment and legally authorized to live in the USA (issued a J-1 Visa)
- Required to attend the EurAupair Au Pair Workshop upon arrival in the United States. Workshop includes instruction on cross cultural topics, insights into American lifestyles, basic child safety and development, and assists the au pair in adjusting to her new home, family, and culture.
Our complete screening ensures our au pairs are:
- Experienced, though not extensively or professionally, in caring for children (although some have more experience than others - see EurAupair Au Pair Par Experience program)
- Responsible young adults of good character. All have had references verified, have passed a criminal background check (or its equivalent) and a psychometric evaluation*
- In good health (medical certificate required)
- Available with driver's license (family is responsible for auto insurance, if necessary)
* Experts in the field of psychometric evaluation believe that no test can
accurately predict the future behavior or level of functioning of any individual.
