For many parents, Cultural Care Au Pair is one of the most affordable childcare options available. Daycare centers charge expensive per child rates, and nannies charge high rates that can be cost-prohibitive for most families. With au pair childcare, regardless of the number of children in your family, the average weekly cost is just $360, including our program fees and your au pair’s weekly stipend — that’s just $8 per hour for 45 hours of childcare coverage.
