We first found Go Au Pair in January 2022 when we were looking for a childcare provider for our toddler. Their website is setup well and searching for candidates is simple. While filling out the host profile takes a bit of time it's worth it as both you and the au pairs are able to share a lot of information. We found an Au Pair in rematch and our local coordinator in town and placement manager were supportive. They were easy to get a hold of and always got back to us in a timely manner. While our match with our Au Pair did not last the staff at Go Au Pair has made moving on painless and helped provide our Au Pair with a new opportunity in a different state. They were impartial and patient while addressing our concerns.

We selected Go Au Pair as our agency of choice because we loved the ease of use and extensive search functionality on their platform for searching Au Pair candidates. Additionally, their customer service is top notch! They are responsive and take good care to answer all of our questions in detail. The entire process has been very smooth and efficient. We highly recommend Go Au Pair if you are looking into the program!

We highly recommend Go Au Pair & hosting an Au Pair! When my husband and I started thinking about the Au Pair program, Go Au Pair was there every step of the way. There was no pressure on the upfront when we were asking questions and understanding the ins and outs of the program. The service is incredibly professional and trustworthy. As far as hosting an au pair, our experience has been amazing! We love our au pair, she is a part of our family. She has been the best caregiver, we wouldn't have survived this year without her! I cannot recommend Go Au Pair enough!

“Lori has been a wonderful resource.”

Morgart - Host Mom, Landenberg, PA

“Au Pair child care is not only spending time with the children in a required mount of time but it is also created the connection between the children and the Au Pair as friends or sister/brother in family.”

“Very good response time and always was ready to communicate, very accessible.”

Neal - Host Dad, Mullica Hill, NJ

“I love living in a city like Philadelphia. It is big and there are tons of stuff you can do but it is not as busy and crowded. I also liked all the free time I had to explore and travel.”

The areas I serve in PA, NJ & DE

I cover Philadelphia and areas in PA, NJ, DE and MD that are within an hour of my home in South Philadelphia where I live with my wife and 2 kiddos.

My name is Lori Keslowitz and I have been the Local Area Representative in Philadelphia with Go Au Pair since November 2020. Before moving to Philadelphia in 2018, I lived in Brooklyn, NY. I completed 2 masters degrees. One in early childhood education and one in special education. As of 2022, I have almost 10 years of experience working with a variety of people with special needs from babies through high schoolers and their parents. I am also a board member and the events chair for Philadelphia Family Pride, a non-profit organization that brings LGBTQ+ families together in the greater Philadelphia region.

I joined Go Au Pair because I love building community and working with folks with different backgrounds and abilities. Bringing people together and sharing in their cultural and familial exchanges has been such a joy for me.

Our current Philadelphia Au Pair cluster has au pairs from Ecuador, Russia, Brazil, Colombia and Germany. Our host parents have jobs in accounting, engineering, finance, healthcare, education, the real estate business and 2 families own their own businesses. Our host kids range from only a few months old all the way up to teenagers. Our families truly offer such a wide variety of experiences for our au pairs and vice versa.

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 Lori’s cluster has been up to recently!

This was my first Family Day event at FDR Park. FDR is one of my favorite places in Philadelphia due to the many activities it has to offer. There’s hiking, kayaking, tennis, playgrounds, fishing and a skatepark, just to name a few. The park is also home to the American Swedish Historical Museum, which is the oldest Swedish museum in the United States.

Here is a photo at Linvilla Orchards of a few of our au pairs, a host mom and me when I was very pregnant with my 2nd kiddo. Linvilla is a great place to visit in the Fall for apple picking, hayrides and their Pumpkinland event. Everyone enjoyed chatting and trying some yummy Fall treats.

Polina K.

The areas I serve in PA

I cover most of Bucks County and Philadelphia County, Southern Montgomery County, Eastern Delaware County and a small part of NJ that is bordering Bucks County.

My name is Polina, and I am a Local Area Representative (LAR) for Go Au Pair in Philadelphia, Montgomery and Bucks County & parts of NJ. I live in Newtown, Bucks County, the suburbs of Philadelphia and I have been working as a LAR for the past 11 years. I have formal education, in economics, business and counseling, I graduated from LaSalle University with my MBA and I love to learn new things. I have two grown children and many grandkids.
I am originally from Ukraine, which was the one of the fifteen former Soviet Union republics. I have a diverse cultural background because of the close proximities of many different cultures. I am also a Counselor and I have experience in working with people of different backgrounds, ages and cultures.

My favorite thing about being a LAR

I have a passion for adoption, and I love to help others. I get great satisfaction in being in a role where I can make a small difference in someone’s life. I like volunteering and spending time together with Au Pairs from my cluster. I enjoy traveling, cooking, gardening, going to Zumba and blogging.
I am thankful for great relationships and friendships with many Au Pairs and host families. I am thankful for the host families who open their home and hearts to an unforgettable cultural experience and for Au Pairs who share their journeys with me. Simply, I enjoy my work as a LAR.

Why I love my job

As a LAR, I love to be in contact with my families and Au Pairs as much as possible, I like to organize unique events, volunteer with Au Pairs and keep my Au Pairs happy. We have valuable cluster traditions- welcoming new Au Pairs, introducing to the cluster, and interviewing new Au Pairs – which helps new Au Pairs to adjust quickly. We have a cluster support group and an individual buddy support where the veteran cluster Au Pairs help newcomers. Many Au Pairs love blogging and sharing their experience which is very helpful and inspiring.
I feel that working with the Go Au Pair agency’s team, my host families and Au Pairs is very rewarding experience. I think that it has been a great experience for the host families from my area as well. During my 11 years of being a LAR, very many host families from my cluster nominated their Au Pairs for IAPA’s Au Pair of the Year Award for their excellent work as Au Pairs!
