LCCs: What exactly do I do?

Hi!

A lot of people ask exactly what I do, what are au pairs, how do I help? Well, I thought that I would dive into just that in this little post. It may be more exciting than you think!

As the Local Childcare Consultant (LCC) for Cultural Care Au Pair in Denver-Stapleton, I service and support host families and au pairs during the course of their year together. I am a: government agent working with compliance and Au Pair visa issues, organizer of super fun events to expose and educate au pairs and their host families, a mediator with a super fancy talking stick, a diplomat (i’m switzerland, unless the au pair is from switzerland, then I am the sky.. no one owns the sky) to solve issues that arise and spread good cheer about all cultures, an advocate for everyone in the program, a cheerleader for communication and small successes, a sherpa to guide new families through the process of selecting an au pair, and best of all, an advocate for the au pair program! I love sharing my experiences, my tips, my suggestions, and of course, helping them see if the program is right for them.

When I say that I provide year round support, I am not joking. I am available to my au pairs and families 24/7. If I am alive, I will help you!

I am part of a nationwide network of more than 400 Cultural Care Au Pair Local Childcare Consultants (real GIRL POWER here), just like me, dedicated to promoting global understanding through intercultural exchange. That’s a huge network. And although I only personally manage families in Denver-Stapleton, I am happy to help new families all over the country Match with their Mary Poppins!

Please do not hesitate to ask me anything!
