EURAUPAIR OFFERS LIVE-IN CHILD CARE FROM YOUNG ADULTS

What to do when both parents work and it seems impossible to get any one to tend the kids on a one-on-one basis during odd hours?

The non-profit EurAuPair program arranges for young European adults, 18-25, to come to the United States and live with American families, caring for their children.The Europeans are exposed to American culture and language, at the same time offering host families "flexible hours of care and individualized attention in the secure, familiar surroundings of each family's home."

All a live-in au pair asks in return is to be included "as a family member and to be given the opportunity to experience life as an American."

Local support to host families and au pairs is guaranteed. For information call EurAuPair's Intercultural Child Care Programs, toll-free 1-800-333-3804.
