Au Pair Information

Home > Au Pair Information

This section gives you detailed information about different issues for an aupair.

The term au pair, mother's help and nanny are often applied rather loosely, so it is worth spending some time clarifying the varying issues. Au pairs are primarily live-in jobs, concerned with tending to the needs of children, contributing to their emotional and mental development and imposing discipline when necessary.

The first recorded use of the word `au pair', which means literally `on equal terms' in French, is in 1897 in the Girl's Own Paper. It refers to English girls teaching their language in France in exchange for lessons in French. But soon the emphasis altered, and caring for children became the central duty of au pairs rather than teaching. Since then a great deal of grandiloquent prose and highflown sentiments have been spouted on the subject of au pairing, describing it as the ideal way to experience a foreign culture from the inside, learn a language, etc. The motive which families have in taking on an au pair is to help them appreciate their culture and learn their language.
