Looking for an Au Pair in Oakland, California?
With over 25 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 Oakland area.
EurAupair is an affordable child care option, making it a real value for such flexible, loving, in-home care. And, unlike other forms of child care, the fee is for children of all ages, and per family - not per child.
Local Support from EurAupair Community Counselors
Following the receipt of your application form, a local Community Counselor from the Oakland 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 local CC is such a rewarding experience! I get to meet amazing host families and also enthusiastic au pairs from many different countries. I meet life long friends. Best part is, the host families and au pairs truly add value to my life and they all give me an inner peace knowing I am giving back to my community." from Community Counselor Julie Molkenbuhr.
Some examples of monthly au pair meetings in the area: My monthly meetings tend to be casual gatherings with all of the Au Pairs in my territory just getting together and sharing good company. I typically make us all food and we sit and talk and share stories about our upbringing and also how they are all adjusting to life here in America. It is light and fun. I love that the Au Pairs get to know each other better and I see them exchanging mobile phone numbers and making plans to stay in touch before our next “monthly meeting”. Cultural Events thus far have included a trip to a Harvest Festival. We all picked out pumpkins and then carved them and decorated them. We had a lot of laughs. Next month for our “monthly meeting” we are going Holiday Ice Skating and I am going to kindly ask each Au Pair to bring a dish from their respective country to share with our group.
