After looking for an agency and participated to an Au Pair BUTRFLY webinar, we subscribed to the Premium formula. The Au Pair BUTRFLY team is really nice and is fully dedicated to the families AND to the Au Pair (candidates and recruited). The experience for the recruitment process was very good. Considering our context (blended family with joint custody), the agency offered many alternatives and responded very well to our specific requirements, our incessant questions, and tight timeline. After the recruitment process, the preparation of our Au Pair's arrival was just as good and followed, and they are still following our family and our Au Pair. We don't regret choosing BUTRFLY Au Pair at all, and we will continue to work with this agency as long as we need an au pair for our family.

Professional, responsive and pleasant support. We've hired several au pairs in the past, but now I only use Butrfly because it's very reassuring for everyone.

Perfect made-to-measure support! A big thank you to the Butrfly team and particularly to our contact person who immediately understood our request and was able to answer our questions proactively. We're now looking forward to meeting our au pair, who is so well looked after and relaxed about her arrival.

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.
