Au Pair of the Year nominees and finalists are recognized by Cultural Care Au Pair

January 27, 2011

It’s official—Cultural Care Au Pair received a record-breaking number of nominations for the 2011 Au Pair of the Year Award! Congratulations to all of you across the country—we are so proud of all that you do for your host families each day.

For the official title of Au Pair of the Year, the International Au Pair Association (IAPA) will only consider three nominees per au pair agency, so we have selected three finalists to represent all of our outstanding au pairs. They are:

  • Alina  Jaekel from Germany: Alina is a true team player who stood by her host family as they waited for a life-changing diagnosis.
  • Ana Figueroa from Chile: Ana treats her host child Natalie, who suffers from a brain injury, with dignity and respect.
  • Simone  Staudenmann from Switzerland: While Simone’s host dad is deployed by the Navy, she makes sure to keep him connected by posting photos of his children and scheduling video calls on Skype.

We encourage our Au pair Buzz readers to learn more about our three finalists as well as all of our state winners this year by visiting our showcase site: aupairoftheyear.com and by watching the video.

Again, we congratulate all of our nominees in 2011 for the hard work they do:
