2018 Winners

Congratulations to the Noto family from New Jersey, our 2018 Host Family of the Year winner! Joining them in July of 2017 from South Africa, au pair Gabriella was compelled to nominate the Noto’s for being so much more than a host family to her.

I cannot explain what this family means to me because it is such a strong bond that has been formed. In a situation like mine, being an Au Pair, it is rather rare to find a family who wants you to be a part of their family in the way the Noto’s do. They have taken me in and shown me love and care, they even steer me in the right direction a lot of the time when it comes to things I can’t figure out myself. Although my job is looking after their children, whom I love more than anything in the world and will love until the end of time, Kelly and jay have taken me under their wing and made me a part of their family which is special. Our dynamic is unique. That is all I can say and I have never been happier in my entire life than I have been living with this family.” – Gabriella C.

Congratulations also go to the Miller-Fankhauser and McCoy families, our 2018 runner-up winners in the Au Pair of the Year Contest. Follow the link for each family to discover why their au pair’s nominated them for this prestigious award!
