How Did Host Parents Rate Au Pair Care's Infant Specialized Care Program?
NEW! Special Report on Infant Care & Au Pairs
Au Pair Care’s Infant Specialized Care Program – Survey Results
Au Pair Care’s unique program—Infant Specialized Care—provides families with an au pair who specializes in infant care and child development. If you are a parent with a new baby, this program may be the answer to your anxiety and concern over leaving your infant with a stranger.
Heidi Woehl, Vice President of Au Pair Care, says,
"With so many women with infants in the workforce and a clear lack of quality providers catering to this age group, developing a tailored au pair service that offers specialized infant training and experience was a priority for Au Pair Care."
Infant Specialized Care au pairs receive 40 hours (here in the USA) in infant care training and must have a minimum of 200 hours in childcare experience with babies under the age of two.
Host parents who matched with au pairs that graduated from the Infant Care Program completed satisfaction surveys evaluating the program's success and the findings are summarized in our 2011 & 2012 Survey Reports!
The majority of our survey respondents (66%) used an Infant Specialized Au Pair for a year or more.
Consequently, most of the ratings are made by host parents experienced with this program and with au pairs who are specially trained to care for infants.
Read how host parents rated these specially trained au pairs on the following Important Infant Skills:
- CPR training and certification
- Baby Massage
- Knowledge of Child Development
- Sign Language training, and more.

Why? Your infant cannot tell you if there is something wrong with the au pair or what is happening when you are not there.
