Looking for an Au Pair in Jacksonville, FL?
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 Jacksonville 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 Jacksonville 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 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.
