Training
Preparation for a successful au pair experience begins at the initial Screening and Orientation. We cover topics such as American culture and what their expectations should be for the year regarding your children's childcare needs. Often, this meeting will feature presentations from a former au pair who shares her experience and offers advice to the prospective candidates.

Prior to leaving for their American home, the au pairs learn about their new home by reading supplemental information about the state they will be living in. Each au pair also receives a Cultural Care Au Pair Handbook which is a detailed guide of American culture, family life, communication skills, safety precautions, and program guidelines. They also receive training in American child-rearing, discipline, health and safety and age-appropriate activities.

Each au pair also attends a week long course at St. John's University on Long Island, NY which is designed to prepare the au pair for the year ahead. Time is spent covering topics such as first aid, household safety, emergency procedures and childhood illness. Also covered is child nutrition, child interaction and building self-esteem. Additional training is scheduled periodically throughout the year in Northern Virginia and throughout the U.S.
