Looking for an Au Pair in Altoona, Pennsylvania?
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 Altoona 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 Altoona 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 like being a Community Counselor because I enjoy meeting young people from different countries. I had a wonderful experience with a French exchange program when I was in high school. I stayed with a wonderful family with whom I've had a long friendship. I love to see my au pairs forging such friendships with their host families." from Community Counselor Sylvia Hamerman-Brown.
Some examples of monthly au pair meetings in the area include: Lakemont Park, Mishler Theatre, Galactic Ice, bowling, shopping, meeting for coffee.
Education for your Au Pair
