Looking for an Au Pair in Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina?
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 Research Triangle 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 Raleigh/Durham 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 love being a Community Counselor and I am proud of my area and love showing it off to the new au pairs. I am an outgoing person, so I love getting to know the au pairs and learning about their different countries. I really enjoy helping the host families and their au pairs. It has been very rewarding to be able to help the host families get to know their new au pairs and I look forward to the monthly meetings I have with them." from Community Counselor Kristie Sittloh.
Some examples of monthly au pair meetings in the area include: Ice Skating, bowling, pool ice cream social, beach trips, World Cup pizza party, and other social events au pairs enjoy.
