What is the difference between au pairs and nannies?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Michael Amster
Specializes in Pediatrics
Expectations: A nanny is somebody hired by you to take care of the baby. Usually for some extended period of time per day, several hours, and in shifts through the week. They can be from another country, or the lady across the street. An au pair is generally a student or young person from another country seeking an experience here, and agrees to watch kids in exchange for a visa and financial support.
