(Chappaqua, NY), 9/11/12 -- Responding to the increasing demand for quality live-in childcare, Cultural Care Au Pair has recently added Barbara Buxbaum to its field staff for the Westchester County, NY area. As a Cultural Care Au Pair local childcare coordinator (LCC), Buxbaum will provide service and support to host families and their au pairs throughout the program year.
Buxbaum is part of a nationwide network of more than 600 Cultural Care Au Pair local childcare coordinators dedicated to promoting global understanding through intercultural exchange. Buxbaum will advise area au pairs and their host families on educational opportunities, as well as organize fun activities for the entire extended Cultural Care Au Pair family to enjoy.
"Our hands-on local childcare coordinators are a key part of the success of Cultural Care Au Pair, and one of many reasons why families come back to us year after year for flexible and affordable live-in childcare," said Susan Robinson, Vice President of Communication for Cultural Care Au Pair. "Barbara is a terrific and knowledgeable source for anyone in the area who is interested in getting more information on hosting an au pair."
Buxbaum has a unique combination of business and human services experience. She has worked in marketing, communications and health administration as well as job development, creating employment opportunities for young adults while ensuring positive working relationships. As a caring mother of a boy and girl adopted from South Korea, Buxbaum co-founded musicbymommies.com, a partnership that provides music programs to young children and produces original songs to help them navigate their daily routines.
