Relevance of matches. We've used Butrfly now for 3 years in a row to find our au pairs, from South Africa, Germany and the USA. Each time, the team was able to find us the rare pearl by listening to our expectations. What a time saver compared to other services! Thank you!!!

Great experience. Butrfly helped us recruit our 1st au pair. We were in an emergency situation and were delighted with the service and support. The profiles selected are really great. I highly recommend Butrfly.

Butrfly was able to understand our expectations and the way our family functioned, so as to offer us the best profile. And the support doesn't stop there, as the team is always available. The principle of videoconferencing between families to discuss our questions is also a real plus!

We are very happy with our experience. Our au pair is very pleasant, participates in family life and gets on very well with our children. Butterfly manages the introductions efficiently and then follows up on the file.

The Au Pair Program

The au pair exchange program allows 18-30 year olds to live with a family.

In exchange for 25 to 30 hours of childcare, the au pairs are housed, fed and paid. They become part of the household’s daily life, supporting the parents.

In their free time, the young au pairs study, learn a language or work on their professional projects

A cultural and linguistic exchange

The advantages of being an au pair family

For a host family, to hire an au pair is the solution to finding a balance between your career and your family life. This type of child care provides you with daily support. The au pair is a reference for your children, like a big sister or brother. It is easier for you to manage your environment when the au pair lives in your home.

The advantages of being a young au pair

Living as an au pair in France or internationally is the most economical way to experience an immersive trip: you are fed, housed and paid! It’s a way for you to be a student and live abroad without financial risk. It will look great on your CV, allowing you to gain experience with children, learn a foreign language and discover another culture. Being hosted by a family provides you with comfort and safety. You will make rapid progress, while creating strong bonds.

At Au Pair BUTRFLY, we live the au pair program every day

Our team is made up of experts in the field of au pairing and living abroad. Butrfly is composed of French host families, former au pairs or former French expats who have left for the four corners of the globe.

Thanks to our experience, we know how to best accompany you in your project to host an au pair (male or female), or to go abroad. We understand your needs and take the time to answer all your questions.

An au pair stay is a unique and incredible experience for both host families and young people, based on trust and cultural exchange. After all the meaning of ‘au pair’ is ‘on equal terms’, so it is a two-way exchange.

« Au pair » means « on equal terms »

so it is a reciprocal exchange.

We think that a successful au pair experience is based on our key principles : sharing, caring, communication and openness.
