Additional Considerations

Au Pair Foundation gives you a generous $800 flight allowance towards your Au Pair’s international airfare to and from your home. You may choose to use your frequent flyer miles if you prefer.

The U.S. Department of State regulations require au pairs to take 6 credit hours from an accredited secondary institution during their stay and the host family is responsible for paying up to $500 towards the cost of these classes ($1,000 for Educare).

Should you require your Au Pair to drive as part of her duties, it is your responsibility to add them to your current insurance policy. Families are required to provide their Au Pair with room and board as well.
