Summer Activities for Kids

Here is a fantastic list of over 20 combined museums, recreation centers, indoor activity centers, top parks, zoos, and kid-friendly locations to provide my au pairs with child-related activities to get them started as they learn their way around the Denver Metro area. #AuPairHeart #HostAnAuPair #Family

As a childcare coordinator of au pair program, I love to educate new families about the benefits families receive from hosting an au pair. If you have questions or are considering hosting an au pair, please contact me directly.

The success of our program is due to amazing American families who open up their hearts and homes to a young person from overseas and embark on an enriching cross-cultural experience.  If you know of a family anywhere in the U.S. who might be interested in welcoming an au pair- please refer them directly to me 

 NOTE: Please reply if you’ve found it helpful or if you’d like to see another local attraction added to this list.
