Whether it's gastronomic greatness, artistic endeavour or cultural cachet you're looking for, there's no doubt that France still sits right at the top of the European heap. France is the country for which the word chic was invented - seductive and aloof, old-fashioned and forward-looking, but always characterised by a certain je ne sais quoi.

The country that gave the world champagne, casseroles and Camembert is justly famous for its cooking, and you'll find there are plenty of places to indulge yourself. But while France is undoubtedly a place to eat and drink to your heart's content, there's much more to this fascinating country than cutting-edge cuisine.

The majority of  host families live in or near Paris and life is lived at a fast pace.We place au pairs in the following areas : Paris , Britanny , Normandy and the Loire Valley  

Paris is one of the major global cities in the world. It offers a heady mix of culture, art, sport, business,  architecture, gastronomy and history all rolled into one.  Have a look at the webcams at Paris Live by clicking on the picture of the Eiffel tower above. Often both parents work and will rely on you to ensure that the children eat well and complete their homework and attend their extra activities such as ballet or soccer as well as playdates with friends. It will be your responsibility to keep the home tidy and make sure that everyone has fresh clean clothes. It would be an advantage if you can drive only if you are placed in the suburbs. Hardly anybody takes their cars into Paris as public transport is excellent and safe and there is no parking anywhere. You will see cars sandwiched into spaces you would never have dreamed possible.

You do not need to speak any French to be an aupair in Paris, many families will accept an English speaking aupair, but you do need to committ yourself to attending French classes to get the most out of your experience and of course the children in your care may not speak much English at all!

Two programs are available

SUMMER AUPAIR in  FRANCE (From May, choose from 2 months to 5 months stay)

Only a limited number of applications are accepted each year. To be sure of a place, you need to get your application completed as early as possible. Applications cannot be accepted after the 10th April of each year.

STANDARD AUPAIR IN FRANCE (anytime during the year)


  • Work up to 35 hours per week including some evenings babysitting
  • Work a maximum of 10 hours per day, childcare and childcare related housekeeeping only
  • Your own private bedroom
  • Minimum one and half days free per week . One full weekend per month.
  • Four days paid vacation for summer aupair, two weeks for standard aupair.
  • Comprehensive health, medical insurance cover provided
  • Pocket money of 80 Euros per week.
  • An Au Pair Club : 3 organized week end outings per year (last year we took our Au Pairs to the Mont Saint Michel, Rennes and Nantes ). 

    Welcome Pack : each au pair receives a welcome pack upon their arrival : useful information to help them adapt to a different culture.

    - Monthly updated list : All Au Pairs receive every month an updated list of all the different nationalities of the au pairs placed in the same area as themselves. This helps to stabilise them as they all have the same thing in common, that is to be “An Au Pair Abroad”.

    - French Contact : we organize meetings with french students. An excellent opportunity to integrate the au pairs into the french student environnement.

    - Forum : we have a forum in which the au pairs can chat on line amongst themselves.

    - French school : all au pairs receive full details of the school they will be attending (price, hours, ect ...)

    - Assistance : they will get full assistance of our team during the year. they will be provided with an emergency phone number they can call 24h/24h.


To get onto the program:

  • You must be between 18 and 26 inclusive.
  • Must have passed grade 12 or the equivalent.
  • Must be a non smoker
  • A driving licence would be a distinct advantage.
  • French classes even in grade 8 would be an advantage.
  • Be willing to enrol in French classes after your arrival at your own cost (not required for summer aupair)
  • Be able to provide your own airfare.

What will this cost me? 

Do I need to speak French?  

Most host parents speak a reasonable English and most Parisians can communicate in English, but you should try to have a grasp of basic French before you go as it is unlikely that the children in your care will understand very much English! You should be speaking and understanding French well by the time you return.
