Au Pair vs Nanny – This will surprise you!

Many families like the idea of the one-on-one care a nanny can provide, but the high cost is a big deterrent. In most communities in the U.S., nannies are cost-prohibitive for middle class families.

Disadvantages of hiring a nanny:

High cost and need for salary negotiations
Lack of quality candidates
Lack of a qualified agency in the area
Lack of night or weekend coverage
The hassle of verifying her legal work eligibility
Absence of a back-up plan if she falls ill or quits
No regulation or support from a third-party agency or staff member

Hosting an au pair can give you the one-on-one attention and in-home convenience that you want but without the high cost and other disadvantages of hiring a nanny. Compare au pair childcare to a nanny.
