A Journey of Enrichment

Exploring the World through Cultural Au Pair Experiences

My son recently graduated from Dripping Springs High School and as moms do, I started reminiscing. I adopted my son as a single mom and figuring out childcare was tough. Trying to balance flexibility, dependability and costs was a challenge. Friends suggested I host an au pair through Cultural Care Au Pair and five au pairs later, I can say it was a great experience!

The program is regulated by the U.S. Department of State and in general, the cost of hosting an au pair is on par or oftentimes less than other options such as daycare and nannies. It also provides much more flexibility.

Au pairs are educated young people from abroad who live in your home, become part of your family and provide up to 45 hours per week of childcare on a schedule you decide, including mornings, evenings and weekends. They can do tasks related to the children such as meals, laundry, room clean up, chauffeuring, and homework help. Au pairs bring new languages and cultures to your family, fostering a sense of curiosity and global perspective. My son and I learned so much from our au pairs and are still connected with several of them – one lives nearby and is my son’s “big sister”! 

The Dripping Springs area has 27 Cultural Care au pairs and host families. To learn more about Cultural Care Au Pair and determine if an au pair is a good fit for your family, visit
