Is an Au Pair the Best Option for Your Family?

When families start thinking about childcare solutions, many don’t consider hiring an au pair to care for their child—mainly because they’re not sure what an au pair is or does.

An au pair, meaning a caregiver from another country, takes on the position of a part-time, live-in caretaker for your child. Typically an au pair will live for one year in the United States as part of their studies.

The experts at Therapeutic Parenting have recommended and helped source au pair care for hundreds of families and we are well-equipped to help you determine if an au pair is the right fit for yours.
