Looking for an Au Pair in Los Angeles, California?
With over 30 years of experience, EurAupair was one of the first au pair programs to become designated by the U. S. Department of State to legally sponsor au pairs to come to the United States, and has placed tens of thousands of au pairs across the country including in the Los Angeles area.
As the leading au pair agency in Los Angeles, EurAupair is an affordable child care option. Our au pairs are a real value for such flexible, loving, in-home care. And, unlike other forms of child care, the fee is the same for children of all ages, and per family - not per child.
Benefits of Having an Au Pair and Using EurAupair
An au pair provides much more than just child care. Finding an au pair in Los Angeles is a cultural exchange opportunity for your family, and you don’t need to travel to experience it. Here are just some of the many benefits of welcoming an au pair to your home:
- Your au pair will share her cultural experiences with you and your children, even introducing them to her language and traditions.
- Having an au pair is a chance for you to open up your home to a young woman who seeks to learn about your language and culture. Someone who takes such an interest in learning can be a positive influence on your children.
- While your au pair will become an extra set of hands to help care for your children, she will also be like a member of your family for the whole year — and most likely a friend forever.
- You can trust our more than 25 years of experience to help find the au pair in LA, California who will integrate best with your family. With EurAupair, you’ll ensure your au pair comes to the U.S. legally and is properly screened to live in your home for the year.
- Our program sponsors au pairs from five different continents.
Our LA au pair agency provides continued support for our au pairs and host families throughout their year together. We understand that having an au pair is a new experience for some families, so we provide resources to make it the best experience possible. Au pairs also benefit from some help settling into their new environment.
Local Support From EurAupair Community Counselors
Following the receipt of your application form, a local Community Counselor from the Los Angeles area will be assigned to your family. The Community Counselor is available to answer any questions and provide assistance to both you and your au pair throughout your year together.
"Being a Community Counselor for EurAupair is such a rewarding position. Not only a witness to the growth in au pairs but the host families as a whole. To watch bonds develop between the children, au pairs, and host families is beautiful. The program itself offers flexibility, cultural integration, and dependability. What makes EurAupair different is that we as an agency are a family as well. While we are understanding and compassionate, we make sure that everything is done according to the Department of State codes and guidelines. I thoroughly enjoy offering 24/7 support to families in the Los Angeles area and mentoring au pairs. I myself have formed great lifelong friendships, too. The benefits are well beyond an enriching opportunity for all." from Community Counselor Irina Jelinek.
EurAupair community counselors plan activities to bring the au pairs together on a monthly basis to take advantage of everything the Los Angeles area has to offer. We build a strong support network for our au pairs by providing mentoring and camaraderie for them. Some examples of monthly au pair meetings in the area include: Hiking the Hollywood sign, Disneyland, Brea Tar Pits, LA Zoo, Griffith Observatory.
Child-Friendly Activities and Education for Your Au Pair
You can also suggest places your au pair can plan outings with your children based on their interests and your knowledge of the area. The Los Angeles area offers many opportunities for day trips and fun child-friendly activities. What better way for your au pair to learn about the culture than to check out local museums, libraries and parks?
U.S. government regulations require that au pairs be provided with opportunities for cultural and educational enrichment. When you learn what your au pair is specifically interested in, you can plan family day trips to provide cultural enrichment and fun at the same time. Your au pair may appreciate time to explore some attractions on her free time, as well.
Au pairs must also complete six units of academic coursework at an accredited, post-secondary institution. There are many such institutions in the greater Los Angeles area offering appropriate courses.
