Looking for an Au Pair in Wichita, Kansas?
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 Wichita 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 Wichita 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've worked with youth since I was 13, first as a camp counselor, then as a Church youth leader, finally today as a Community Counselor. Encouraging a young woman from another country in her duties as an au pair, giving support to the families who welcome her into their home to care for their children is rewarding beyond description. It can be challenging and fun all in one. I'm an artsy type, so I like to organize museum and live theatre experiences, although I've been known to throw in a wrench and take my au pairs to sporting events, and even to a fast-paced roller derby! I think the benefit to me is it keeps me young and I form lasting friendships of both the au pairs and the host families.” from Community Counselor Pamela Porvaznik.
Some examples of monthly au pair meetings in the area include: Museum of World Treasures, Exploration Place, Old Cowtown Museum, Sedgwick County Zoo, Kansas Aviation Museum, Botanica, The Wichita Gardens, Lawrence–Dumont Stadium, meeting for coffee, shopping.
Education for your Au Pair
U.S. government regulations require that au pairs be provided with opportunities for cultural and educational enrichment. Au pairs must complete 6 units of academic coursework at an accredited, post-secondary institution.
