Aupair

An au pair is usually young person between 17 and 35 years who lives with a family abroad to experience a new culture and a new language. An au pair provides the family child care and household tasks in exchange for board, lodging and pocket money. Most au pairs remain a year at their host family, but there are countries that offer renewal options.

Babysitter

A babysitter provides childcare on a part time basis or on-call and are mostly paid by the hour. This can be done on a live-in or live-out basis. Most babysitters work for several families and they usually work in their own country.

Nanny

A nanny provides childcare on a part-time or full-time basis. This can be done on a live-in or live-out basis. Most nannies are more experienced than au pairs and babysitters and usually work in their own country.

In most countries this is not necessary nor required. Families and au pairs can then arrange all necessary things themselves without any intervention and help of an au pair agency.

Au pairs in America need a J-1 visa which can only be obtained through one of the au pair agencies which are authorized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Families who found an au pair through AupairQuest.com, can contact one of these agencies for the furder procedure and information about obtaining a J-1 visa.
