Looking for an Au Pair in Brooklyn, New York?
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 Brooklyn 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 Brooklyn 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.
"Throughout the year I look forward to meeting the fantastic, fun, diverse local families who are welcoming an au pair into their homes. At least once a month, I check in to make sure everybody is adjusting well and that the children are enjoying their new international caregiver. In my (admittedly biased) opinion, au pairs placed in Brooklyn are among the luckiest and in regular monthly meetings we get to share in some of the city’s greatest adventures — like walking across the Brooklyn Bridge, taking in a BAM concert or tasting a classic Cony Island hotdog…it’s a chance to make new friends, share the best of New York City and be an ambassador for positive global exchange." from Community Counselor Niki Borofsky.
Some examples of monthly au pair meetings in the area include: Exploring the Museum of Food and Drink, bowling at Brooklyn Bowl, strolling through Prospect Park, riding the Cyclone in Coney Island, taking in a BAM concert, appreciating art at the Met, brunching on the NYC High Line, shopping at Brooklyn Flea, learning how to make NY pizza, gardening at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, volunteering at a local food pantry, riding the East River Ferry, visiting Ground Zero.
