I can't believe it's that time of year again - yes, Christmas is
well and truly on it's way! In London we are all reaching for our coats as the weather gets colder, but as we prepare
ourselves for the month ahead, we are full of festive cheer and are eager to get on with our shopping.
For those of you already in America, this month's 'Touchdown'
has plenty of tips on how to keep the children entertained over the holidays - we think you'll really enjoy our
cookie recipe (just remember to clean the kitchen afterwards!). We also have more information on the Global Awareness
program: a great opportunity for you to share your culture and brush up on your public speaking skills!
If you're thinking of joining the program, we have lots of great
features for you, inlcuding stories from host families, interviews with au pairs and travel opportunities. We hope these
help you in your decision making. If you would still like to be an au pair, we now have an on-line application form, which
is part of our new-look website. Click here to read more.
It’s always lovely to hear
from you all so keep letters and pictures coming! Send them onto us
Wishing you all a great
Au Pair in America
