Looking for an Au Pair in Southbury, Connecticut?
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 Southbury 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 Southbury 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.
"Becoming an Area Coordinator for EurAupair has been an experience that I am glad that I was presented. I have been introduced to many different cultures from around the world and I have also been introduced to many individuals in the USA. I feel the cultural exchange program is a great way for families to introduce different cultures to their children. It is also a great way for them to teach their children how to build relationships. Everyday is a learning day with an au pair! Not only do they care for your children, they teach them about their culture, become their friend and make for a very fun year!" from Area Coordinator Kerri Cornett.
Some examples of monthly au pair meetings in the area include: Southford Falls State Park, Lake Lillinonah, visit museums, shopping, meeting for coffee.
