"I started out as a Community Counselor in Oregon and when my husband joined the Navy, we ended up here. I wanted to become a Community Counselor for a couple reasons, one of those being I wanted to extend my horizons and become more acquainted with different ethnicity around the world. I in a way saw it as a challenge and out of my comfort zone so I wanted to take it on. I love challenging myself because that is how we grow best. I love helping people and I knew I could through this program. I love to introduce new au pairs to the area and to be able to learn about their culture. I love being able to help the host families choose an au pair and help them throughout the year they are with the au pair. Au pairs can make life so much easier and better on the host families and it allows them and their children to take someone in and learn about a different culture on a whole new level. They become part of their family and that's amazing!" from Community Counselor Christina Belli.
Some examples of monthly au pair meetings in the area include: Coffee at Dunkin Donuts, Amelia Island Museum of History, lunch at a 50s Diner, Panera Bread and Mellow Mushrooms, shopping.

Au pairs must complete 6 units of academic coursework at an accredited, post-secondary institution. Unfortunately, an au pair in Jacksonville or any other location in the United States cannot satisfy the government’s mandated educational requirement by continuing her studies online.

If your children love animals, your au pair will enjoy introducing them to all the animals at the Jacksonville Zoo. When your child care provider and your children visit this thrilling attraction, they can experience the Range of the Jaguar, the Plains of East Africa and the Giraffe Overlook. They can even visit the Monsoon Asia exhibit and embark on an Australian Adventure. Of course, no visit to the Jacksonville Zoo would be complete without a peek at the Great Apes, a stop at Stingray Bay and some fun in the Play Park and Splash Ground.
Adventure Landing is a great place for your au pair to take your children if they have a wide array of interests.
