Au Pair en Route is the UK's first au pair agency specialising in French au pairs. Our agency is based in Warwickshire but we place our au pairs nationwide. We place experienced au pairs who have successfully passed our thorough background checks. Our bilingual team also checks all references carefully. Hosting an au pair is the most cost-effective childcare option for busy families as, in return for up to 35 hours of childcare (and light housework), the au pair receives free board and lodging, as well as weekly pocket money starting at just £75. Family registration with Au Pair en Route is free and you only get charged a one-off placement fee once you have selected one of our au pairs. As part of our service, you get a free replacement period and unlimited access to our relationship management service. More information on our au pair service can be found on our website.
