Many host families from Philadelphia, Bucks County, NJ are looking forward to nominating their Au Pairs this year. The Smolarski host family from New Hope, Bucks County is already talking of nominating their Au Pair Kathy from Ecuador for IAPA’s Au Pair of the Year Award.

“She walked into a family with 8 children, including newborn triplets…!  Not only did she make the courageous decision to join our family, but she has been nothing short of AMAZING since she has joined. She works tirelessly to partner with Nichole (mom) to run this very busy household, working very hard and always doing so with a smile and a loving attitude with the children.”
