Looking for an Au Pair in Rockville, Maryland?
With over 25 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 Montgomery County (including Rockville, Gathiesburg, Germantown, and Dickerson).
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 Rockville 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.
"Being the community counselor gives me an excellent opportunity to meet and connect with people from various cultures and backgrounds from around the world, as well as, locally. I strongly believe it is an enriching experience to all to share your culture as it helps to break down some of the stereotypes we might have about one another. While, as a parent I relate to the concerns families have about the well-being of their children, as a former au pair myself, I also relate to what the au pairs might experience. I enjoy being involved, help, and be the “mother-figure” if you will." from Community Counselor Heidi Thomas.
Some examples of monthly au pair meetings in the area include: DC capital tour, DC monument tour, pottery painting, bowling, Potomac river cruise , picnic/hiking at Great Falls, etc.
