Hi, this is SerahRose Roth for About.com, and today we're going to talk about the difference between a nanny and an au pair.

The Difference Between a Nanny and an Au Pair

While both nannies and au pairs focus on child care, their responsibilities are similar, but not interchangeable.

An au pair, French for “equal to”, is usually a young person from another country. They live with the host family, assist with the children and some housework. Au pairs live with the family for a period of time, but usually not more than a year. It's common for them to receive meals and a small stipend during that period. Au pairs are more likely to participate with the family in activities, and sometimes establish close relationships.

A nanny is a formal childcare supervisor. They may live in or outside the home. They are expected to deal independently with the children and their needs. Nannies almost always work a full-time, salaried position, and are more often considered employees than adjunct family members.
