The Benefits of Finding Au Pairs in Kansas
You have many choices when trying to find care for your children. What makes an au pair the best option? You gain many advantages from inviting a caregiver into your home that you won’t receive from a day care. Au pairs offer flexible scheduling for families where the parents work nontraditional hours or need child care outside of the usual 9-to-5 hours.
Plus, when you live with someone from another country, your children receive a cultural enrichment you won’t find with any other child care option. They can learn first-hand about what life is like in another place. An au pair can also help them learn a foreign language, giving them conversational opportunities unavailable from other caregivers.

Local Support from EurAupair Community Counselors
Following the receipt of your application form, a local EurAupair Community Counselor from Kansas will be assigned to your family. The EurAupair Community Counselor is available to answer any questions and provide assistance to both you and your au pair throughout your year together. One of the first responsibilities of your EurAupair Community Counselor is to arrange a convenient time for an interview in your home, to meet you and your family. During the interview, you will assist the EurAupair Community Counselor in completing a Host Family Profile which will be utilized in the placement process. Upon review of your application form, Host Family Profile and positive personal reference forms, your EurAupair Community Counselor will consult in your selection of a qualified, caring au pair. The final choice is always yours, as you will know who best suits your family structure and immediate needs.

"Our au pair Kim is so very responsible with all her duties and also very generous in spirit to all of us in the family. She is well-adjusted, energetic, helpful, respectful, and very qualified to care for our children. Things are going as well if not better than we had ever hoped. Mostly she is a member of our family now and we love having her here with us every day! Our Community Counselor Pam also contacts both me and my husband at least monthly. She is a valuable resource to all of us."
