Upon your arrival in the USA you will be met by an Au Pair in America representative and taken to the Double Tree Hilton Hotel in Tarrytown, New York. This is where you will attend a 4-day Comprehensive Orientation and Training program to prepare you for your year in America.
It is a residential course run by experienced professional trainers and covers everything from how to adapt to the American culture to practical advice on how to perform your childcare duties.
You also get time for sightseeing and making friends with other au pairs from around the world.
The optional New York City tour is a must! The days at orientation are busy and packed with information that really helps you during my year. By the end of the course, you will have a better understanding of what to expect from your time in America and will feel confident and prepared to go on to your host family.
