* You need help before and after school, but not during the hours kids are away. * You need the kind of flexibility that let's you change your schedule week to week. * You need help shuttling your kids to and from soccer, ballet & more. * You want your kids to learn another language. * You need help with kids laundry, meals or an extra set of hands for bathtime, bedtime. * You want a date night without having to find a babysitter last minute. If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you may need an au pair. What's an au pair? Au pairs come to the U.S. on J-1 Visas through a cultural exchange program regulated by the U.S. State Department. Au pairs live in, can work up to 45 hours per week, and the average cost is $350 per week. Your next au pair could be: Svenja from Germany. She has experience with twins. Has watched a 7 and 8 year-old and her younger brother, too. She likes to play sports and can drive your kids to their sports. She has references here in the USA. OR Mirva from Sweden. She has experience with babies, toddlers and up, has great driving experience, likes ice skating and horseback riding. She worked temporarily in a kindergarten in Sweden. OR Chun Lan Wei (Shirley) from China. She is a tutor, working with kids 7 to 12. She has also worked as a babysitter. She looks forward to being an au pair in America and can help teach your kids Chinese! OR Julie from Colombia. She has been taking care of a 2-year-old girl. Scheduling playdates, cleaning up the toys, managing snow days ad her family says she is a great help in the household. She can teach your kids Spanish, like she has taught the child in her first host family! OR Justine from France. She is a twin, and helped raise her younger brother. Great experience with babies. Warm and fuzzy personality. She is sporty and athletic and can teach your kids French! Of course these are only a handful of our au pairs! There are many others to choose from as well! Many families are currently hosting au pairs. I'm happy to connect you with families who have hosted - one, two - even three or more au pairs in your area if possible.
