Looking for an Au Pair in Columbia, South Carolina?
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 Columbia 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 Columbia 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 wanted to be a Community Counselor with EurAupair because relocating to another country is not easy. When I lived in Ecuador, having liaisons (who also became my friends) to help me navigate my new surroundings is largely why I have such good memories of my time there. Being a Community Counselor allows me to pay that favor forward." from Community Counselor Angela Webb.
Some examples of monthly au pair meetings in the area include: Meetings at local parks, libraries, zoo, Sandhill, Laura's Tea Room, coffee.
Education for your Au Pair
