About me

My name is Patti McHugh. I live in Glen Rock, NJ. I have been married to Jay for 29 years and have two sons 22 & 18. I just closed my family daycare of 17 years and am in transition on my new adventure while I continue to be a Local Area Representative for Go Au Pair. Before my family daycare, I did Direct Marketing for 5 years and Accounting for 10 years and graduated from Rider University in NJ. I have visited England, Scotland, France, Austria, Italy, Portugal in the past few years and hope to increase that list over time! I have visited many of our larger National Parks in the USA and love encouraging the Au Pairs to do while here. My interests/passions are tennis, movies, music & theater.

My favorite thing about being a LAR

My favorite thing about being a Local Area Representative is to meet Au pairs from around the world and learn about their various cultures. Also, discovering what they like and don’t like about our culture and then introducing them to an activity that they may have not done before and enjoy doing, like snow tubing or corn maze.

I also enjoy introducing the program to new families. I find many families think having au pair is a “rich” person’s version of childcare, when in fact in is more cost effective for the average family. That is why I had au pair when my children were young.

Why I love my job

I have been a Local Area Representative for 17 years. My area is North East New Jersery which covers Bergen Country, Passaic County, Hudson County and small parts of Essex/Morris county.

I had an Au Pair from the Czech Republic when my kids were little and really enjoyed our year together. She is now married with children too.

I enjoy being a local area representative and showing the au pairs fun activities in the NY metropolitan area as well as being a support person to the au pairs & host families.

Since I did childcare for 17 years, I have been very helpful to the au pairs over the years on childcare issues. I have seen so many great matches over the years! (too many too count). I have met au pairs from Europe, Russia, China, Jamaica, South Africa, Botswana, Canada, South America, Central America, Australia & New Zealand. Right now my cluster is a mix of various countries.
