Why Au Pair USA?

If you are looking for a year abroad in the USA, experiencing the true American way of life and learning more about yourself, this is a fantastic way to travel overseas in a secure environment. Life as an au pair in America gives you so much more than a passing glimpse into the USA. It’s a unique opportunity to absorb the American culture through the rewarding experience of caring for American children. To take part you must have childcare experience and a passion for working with children. So if you have previously worked as an au pair, teacher, teaching assistant, nursery assistant, childminder or looked after children in other ways – this is your chance to spend at least a year in the USA!
