Looking for an Au Pair in Albany, New York?
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 Albany 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 Albany 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 have been working with the EurAupair program for about 4 years. There are so many wonderful people that I have met through this program. I have learned so much from each au pair that I have had the privilege of meeting. From the smallest of things regarding their home dynamics back in their home country to the difference in their education and how holidays are celebrated back home. To see their desire to learn more about our culture and desire to become part of an American family is truly fulfilling. Being able to keep in touch with the au pairs after they have completed their year and seeing where their experience here in America has impacted their future endeavors is truly rewarding. Meeting and getting to know each host family has been a huge impact in my life. Each family has a different story and when you have a match with the perfect au pair you see the puzzle complete." from Community Counselor Rosey Rivera.
Some examples of monthly au pair meetings in the area include: Albany Pine Bush Preserve Commission, Colonie Riverfront Bike-Hike Trail, Albany Heritage Visitors Center and Lake George Steamboat Company.
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.
