Looking for an Au Pair in Aspen, Colorado?
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 Aspen/Basalt/Carbondale/Glenwood Springs 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 Aspen 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.
"I became a Community Counselor to help the au pairs in our area connect and build a social network outside their host family. I am also a host mom to an au pair and saw the need for the young ladies to relax and build friendships outside our host family. We have held several fun monthly/cultural meetings at locations all over the Aspen/Roaring Fork Valley area including local outdoor music concerts, lunches at restaurants and enjoying the beauty of our area while hiking and cross country skiing. However, one of our favorite meetings was held at my house. We grilled hot dogs and hamburgers, and had a bonfire complete with s'mores. Some of the au pairs enjoyed their first s'more ever. They had time to relax and enjoy the company of fellow au pairs." from Community Counselor Kris Freeman.
Some examples of monthly au pair meetings in the area include: Day trip to Avalanche Ranch natural hot springs, hiking at Maroon Bells National Park or any of our other beautiful trails, cross country skiing, taking in a concert at the Snowmass or Carbondale summer outdoor concert series.
