About CHI Au Pair USA
CHI Au Pair USA is part of Cultural Homestay International, a non-profit organization that has been dedicated to building international understanding through cultural exchange for over thirty years. As one of the leading Au Pair agencies, CHI Au Pair USA values customer service and one-on-one attention to our families. We provide a diverse selection of highly screened applicants from around the world who all share a love for children.
Why an Au Pair?
- Affordable: For approximately $7.60 an hour, per family, this is a remarkable value, especially for families with multiple children.
- Flexible: Set your own schedule for your au pair. Within guidelines of up to 45 hours a week, and 10 hours a day, the rest is up to you.
- Enriching: By choosing a CHI Au Pair USA your family will have the unique opportunity to be exposed to another language and culture.
- Family: You are not only receiving childcare for your children, you are welcoming a friendly new face into your family.
CHI Au Pair USA goes above and beyond the basic requirements
CHI Au Pair USA supports Au Pairs and families by providing Au Pairs with a 4 day intense orientation and training in Washington DC with the Regional Director. Local Au Pair Coordinators (APC) live in your local area and are your direct contact to provide you with individualized help in matching with an au pair, answering your questions, and providing families with their own orientation and one on one support. Local Au Pair Coordinators organize monthly au pair meetings so they have social support and can meet one another and explore the exciting culture of Arizona’s South West. Each year, the APC also organizes a Family Day so families, au pairs and the local staff can all enjoy one another and create our own “family” within CHI.
The majority of our au pairs have over 500 hours of childcare experience and often have professional experience as teachers or nurses in their home country. Our au pairs are capable and skilled and ready for this amazing experience.
CHI Au Pair USA maintains a strict and thorough screening and admissions procedure based on program visa requirements. Both the au pair and host family benefit from this detailed process and can feel confident that they are entering a program that exceeds the regulatory standards.
The EduCare Au Pair program is similar to the traditional Au Pair program. EduCare is a wonderful alternative for families with school-aged children who require childcare both before and after school.
At only $295 a week, the EduCare Au Pair program is an attractive cost effective choice. EduCare au pairs live as a member of your family and provide 30 hours of childcare a week. This is great for those families who need help getting kids off to school, picking them up, taking them to sports activities, helping with homework, and those special date nights for mom and dad!
