How to Find an Au Pair Agency

Hiring an au pair means that you are arranging for care for your child(ren) from an approved au pair agency.  There are twelve authorized au pair agencies that are regulated by the US State Department.  In order to hire an au pair in the US, the au pair must come from one of these agencies.  An au pair that is hired that does not come from one of these agencies does not meet the legal definition for being an “au pair.”  An au pair that is not hired by one of the twelve approved agencies is probably technically a nanny, which means that there are significant tax liabilities that come into play.

The agencies typically have an application/registration fee that is a few hundred dollars.  They also have program fees that can range from the $6,000 - $8,500 range.  Arrangements vary as to how the program fee is paid.  Typically, several thousand dollars will be due up front with the balance being due thereafter on a prorated basis.  Check with the agency you are interested in for the details.  There will also be a weekly stipend due from which the au pair will be paid. (The program fee covers things like administrative costs, travel insurance, a plane ticket for the au pair’s flight home and health insurance. The annual cost for health insurance alone can easily exceed the cost of the program fee.)

The addresses, websites, phone numbers and email addresses are current as of August 2009.  The contacts provided below is intended to provide factual guidance as to where to go to obtain information about the respective agencies.  A separate article will offer ideas as to which agencies may be better than another.  The au pair agency listings are in alphabetical order.
