What is the best proof that parents are happy with the quality of their kid’s childcare? I think that the best proof of great child care is the families desire to recognize their Au Pairs by spending time writing very special words about them.

“Ophelia has been a precious addition to our family”, wrote Ophelia’s host mom in her nomination essay. ” Between her devotion to Theo, her delicious dumplings, her boundless optimism and positivity, and her simple dependability, Ophelia has enriched our lives and enabled us to pursue our dream of having a family during graduate school. Just as Theo is growing up with Ophelia, Ophelia has grown to be an indispensable part of our lives. We cannot express how grateful we are to have her with us”.Au Pair from China with her host child

 The Mintz family, a host family from Philadelphia, nominated their Au Pair Ophelia from China for the IAPA Au Pair of the Year Award in 2014.
