AU PAIR CULTURAL FAIR SUNDAY, MAY 3, IN STAMFORD
STAMFORD, CT – On Sunday, May 3, Au Pair in America, the nation’s first and largest au pair provider, will host its bi-annual Cultural Fair at the Holiday Inn Select in Stamford from 2 pm to 4pm.
The free Cultural Fair, organized by local Au Pair in America counselors from Fairfield, Litchfield, and New Haven Counties, provides a great opportunity for families who are looking for child care to learn more about the program. Au Pair in America host families and their au pairs will be in attendance, along with Au Pair in America staff to answer questions.
Parents and children will get to visit over fifteen different countries without leaving the room! They will sample foods, view native dances and costumes, and play games from different countries created by au pairs from Au Pair in America. Au pairs will share their cultures and customs with the families. Children will even get a “passport” stamped at each country table. It promises to be an entertaining and educational afternoon for children and adults to share together.
“The cultural fair is a great opportunity to get first-hand information about the many different countries where current au pairs originate from,” states Loralyn Cropper, the local counselor for the program in Weston and Wilton. “And with both families and au pairs present, one can really get a true feel for the program from all perspectives.”
Families interested in learning about the au pair program are welcome to attend the free event at the Holiday Inn Select on 700 Main Street in Stamford. Please RSVP to Au Pair in America community counselor Loralyn Cropper at (203) 280-3446.
