Meet the Au Pair USA Local Coordinator for Northwest New Jersey, including Annandale, Phillipsburg and Hackettstown Areas
Welcome to the InterExchange Au Pair USA cluster in Hunterdon County, New Jersey!
My name is Katrin Daluege and I'm originally from Germany. Before I became a Local Coordinator with Au Pair USA, I was an au pair myself. I came to the United States in 2007 after I graduated with a Masters in Sociology and Political Science. After I completed the au pair program, I decided to go back to college to get yet another degree in Business.
My husband and I have young children. Being a mom is a wonderful gift and trying to keep a good balance between work, community involvement and family is not always easy, but I love the challenge! If I would have to describe myself in two words it would be energetic and ambitious. I enjoy working with people from various backgrounds. I love to travel and have visited and lived in many parts of the world.
This Au Pair USA cluster provides busy families with qualified, live-in international au pair child care in Hunterdon County, NJ and the surrounding areas. All InterExchange au pairs are pre-screened and interviewed before arriving to the U.S. Once au pairs arrive, they go through a 5-day Orientation & Training in New York City where they learn CPR, First Aid and child development. This training builds nicely on the child care experience they have already had in their own countries. InterExchange Au Pair USA sponsors each au pair’s J-1 Visa which allows the au pair to legally work in the U.S. for 12 months. The au pair program can be extended for up to 24 months. Once you join our program, I will guide you throughout the process of selecting and welcoming your au pair!
Becoming a host family can be a wonderful cultural experience for your family, but you may not realize that it can also be a solution to finding affordable live-in child care. The cost of hosting an au pair averages $349 per week, with no per-child fees. Au pairs also provide flexibility for busy parents. You can set up a daily or weekly child care schedule with your au pair, but it’s nice to have the additional peace of mind of knowing that a responsible au pair is there at home to help when things don’t go according to plan.
We work closely with each host family, and are available to answer any questions that you might have. We have a wonderful “cluster” of host families here in Northwestern New Jersey, and we hope that you’ll consider joining Au Pair USA. Please feel free to contact us if I can be of any assistance or answer any questions. If you’re ready to apply, check out our online host family application.
I’m looking forward to a fabulous year with you and your family.
