Looking for an Au Pair in Portland, Maine?
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 Portland 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 Portland 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 enjoy being a Community Counselor because it gives me a chance to meet new people and make connections within my area and with au pairs from around the world. EurAupair gives me the opportunity to show off all the great things the State of Maine has to offer to au pairs from all over the world! It gives my host families a chance to have in home child care and a multicultural experience they will never forget!" from Community Counselor Carrie Dwelley.
Some examples of monthly au pair meetings in the area include: During my monthly meetings I try to take the au pairs to new places that they haven't been before. Whether it is to get a new kind of food, a new place to shop, or showing them something unique to the region. I try to change it up as much as possible.
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.
