Domestic au pair

Lives with the family and provides help with light housework and child care 40 to 60 hours per week. May or may not have previous child care experience.

Many American au pairs are young women from one part of the country - often the Midwest, Southwest, or Pacific Northwest - who are willing to move to work

for a family for one year. American au pairs are most often in their late teens and ^

early 20s. Often, they have worked as babysitters, enjoy children, and like the idea ^

of having a new experience before going on to college or starting a different career. Salaries are not dependent upon where the caregiver is from, but do vary by the region in which the family lives.
