The areas I serve in NJ

I am the local area representative for Bergen County, NJ and part of the surrounding counties that touch Bergen. Northern NJ in general. I have many Au Pairs in the following towns: Glen Rock, Ridgewood, Fair Lawn, Oradell, Tenafly, Franklin Lakes, Mahwah, Ramsey

I have been a Local Area Representative since 1998! I had an Au Pair when my kids were little and really enjoyed the program. It’s like having a little sister in your house. I enjoy being an LAR and meeting Au Pairs from around the world and help guide them in their year in the USA.

I have a cluster that is about 15- 20 families all over Bergen County. Many are two income families who have busy lives and have 2 + children. Their schedules need another adult to help with childcare. The Au Pair’s countries I’ve met over the years have been varied. Right now I see a lot of Central & South American Au Pairs along with Chinese Au Pairs. I have met in the past, South Africans, European, Australian, New Zealand & Russian

Au Pair Cultural Activities

Au Pairs are required to attend a number of Cultural Activities with their Local Area Representative and nearby Au Pairs to make sure they experience the local community and culture during their stay. Below are some of the activities Patti’s cluster has been up to recently!

I take pride in my monthly gatherings. I try and do something fun that the Au Pairs will enjoy. I try to keep the cost down too. I usually do lunch at the Hoboken Art & Music Festival, A Broadway Show, Snow Tubing, Hikes, Governor’s Island and a Holiday brunch at my house.

The areas I serve in NJ

I cover anything in the following loop: South West of I280, South of I80 and West of I95, North of I287.

My name is Anna Taylor, and I’m a Local Area Representative (LAR) at Go Au Pair in Sparta, New Jersey. I have about 20 years of experience in college education, mainly in the area of ESL (English as a Second Language). Through my work, I got to meet lots of Au Pairs who wanted to learn English and I have always been impressed by how smart, dedicated and curious they are. I have been a LAR since August 2021 and I am excited to be a part of the Go Au Pair team.

As a LAR, I love the idea of LARs, parents and Au Pairs working as a team to reach common goals. I am looking forward to meeting the Au Pairs in my area. I can relate to their experience because I lived abroad for a year when I was working on my Master Degree and I know how difficult it can be. I want to make sure that the Au Pairs’ stay in the United States is smooth and memorable. I like to learn about their native countries and cultures, their families and cuisine. I hope to establish good and trusting relationship between Go Au Pair, parents and Au Pairs and make it a worthwhile and enjoyable experience for everybody.

I have a passion for learning, and I love to help my Au Pairs become confident. I get great satisfaction from from seeing people enjoy their work life balance and being part of that. In my spare time. I like to meet new people and learn new foreign languages as well as spend time with my family. I also enjoy gardening and yoga. I am thankful for the opportunity to be a part of this interesting cultural exchange!
