In 1989, AuPairCare, www.aupaircare.com, became one of the first agencies designated by the U.S. Department of State to legally sponsor au pairs to come to the United States. We have successfully placed more than 40,000 au pairs across the U.S. Our au pairs come from over 40 countries and have been fully screened by our overseas representatives. They all have previous childcare experience, speak English, attend a four-day AuPairCare training program, and have a sincere interest in living with an American family and providing quality childcare for twelve months.
