Gina’s host family said, ” In the spring, Gina took a digital animation course at a local university and created a cartoon for our two kids, Aili (3 at the time) and Bo (1 at the time). Every week after making them breakfast, she takes them to swimming lessons and the zoo on Mondays, to the Science Museum on Tuesdays, to see a kids band on Wednesdays, to the Children’s Museum on Thursdays and to gymnastics and storytime in Spanish at the library on Fridays. In the afternoons, she gives daily reading time, music time and art time at home. All the while, she only speaks to them in Spanish, and they are now both fluent..……..we are so grateful for the light and warmth Gina brings to our family and teaches our children (and us).”

Consider Hosting a Male Au Pair.

Many host families prefer male Au Pairs because they are usually easy going, more flexible and practical and willing to do more of the housework. Kids love male Au Pairs because they are creative with game and activities, love sports and spend time outside, camping, cycling, playing with the kids.

Consider Hendry, 20 year old Au pair from South Africa. Hendry already worked as an Au pair in China, “I have lived in China for a while where I was a tutor to children. I loved every moment.”

“I started working in China as an English teacher four months after I graduated. I
first had to do a TEFL(Teaching English as a Foreign Language) course before I
could teach so I completed it and received an A grading. We used games to teach
the children so they are entertained during the lessons. The children were
between the ages of three and eleven so I also had to keep an eye on them the
whole time during the lessons, breaks and lunch times. I learned a lot about their
culture and traditions and I enjoyed the experience very much.”

When I returned home I took on two part time jobs. In the morning I worked at a
daycare center named Wielie Walie where I worked with babies between the ages
of 3 and 24 months. During this time I had to change diapers, bathe them, feed
them, give them medicine, play games with them and I also had to potty train a
child. In the afternoon I worked at an after care center where I had to supervise
over the children and help them with homework and studying. They were
between the ages of ten and thirteen. hendry

I have a lot of experience working with children from all ages including babes. I was an English teacher in China last year so my English is excellent and I lived in another country before. I’m currently transporting children to school and their after school activities everyday so I’m also a very good driver. I am responsible, hard working, mature, honest, energetic and most importantly very good with children. I enjoy to cook, read, working out, cycling, being outdoors and to travel.
I would love to become a part of your family and be an older brother for your children. I would also like doing various activities with them like playing in the park, going to the library, baking and also to look after them”.

Hendry is looking for a host family in Pennsylvania state, if possibly in or near Philadelphia.

In Addition, Go Au Pair is offering an exclusive discount for Host Families living in Philadelphia and surrounding areas. With this discount and promotion, the average cost of an Au Pair is only $345 a week or only $7.66 an hour!

Farewell to Patricia Gudino!

Au Pair from Ecuador Patricia or Gene has been the Au Pair for the host family with 8 kids from Bucks County for her first year and the Au Pair for the family with 3 toddlers for the family from Philadelphia for her second year. Patricia will be leaving the country pretty soon and she sent me long and interesting statements about her Au Pair experience. Patricia is on the right smiling as usual.Go Au Pair volunteer 2016 ISF 13 
I am sure we will always remember Patricia!  I am convinced she is going to enjoy her time with her family in Ecuador! Lets see some of her answers:
The best memories than I have is with my friends, and going to different places my favorite thing was than I’ve learned a lot through this 2 years about the culture, people, about love someone who is not your family. Philadelphia is and always going to be my favorite place to visit, Boston and Orlando were incredible.26166409_646710369052385_4553593822954697398_n
The best memories than I have are with my friends going to different places. 
My favorite thing was than I’ve learned a lot through this 2 years about the culture, people, and love someone who is not your family.
Go Au Pair gave me the opportunity to come but Philadelphia cluster made my experience unique!!Au Pair farewell picnic Independence National Historical Park 2
My best experience is being a part of the family and feel like you are another family member, see the kids growing up every day and learn from them. Some new things I’ve experienced are being more outgoing! The Au Pair Program gave me the opportunity to be a better human being and find myself, be more patient and most of all, love from the button of my heart – that is something than I will never forget!Gene
I do like the experience with an American family because they have taught me about their culture, their food and the most important thing, the language!
I will recommend this experience to all young people who wants to come and find themselves, traveling, learn the language, enjoy life next to a kid!!!
From the bottom of our hearts we wish you the best back in your country, dear Patricia Gudino!

Vacation in Mexico with my host family!

Hi Everyone, It is Maria, Au Pair from Ukraine, who lives in Bucks County PA with the awesome host family. You may read about my Au Pair year before. One of my favorite thing is, of course, a vacation! Recently my host mom sent me a message on Facebook and said, ” Maria, can I please have your passport info because we are off for a week and going to Mexico!”Au Pair Bucks County PA 2
I was super exiting! I am crazy about traveling and Mexico was always one of the places  I always wanted to visit! So I contacted Go Au Pair agency and sent them the DS 2019 form to stamp for my trip.  The agency sent me the form back very quickly and I was ready to travel.  Who knew that I will spend one week in a real paradise? Even the name of that resort is Paradisus❤️Au Pair Bucks County PA 1Food, beach, sun, shows, people whom you love around! My host family and I were having so much fun! It was a super cool vacation! We were swimming with dolphins, kids had a lot of fun with kids club, we met a lot of nice people! Mexico will always be in my heart! Our family loved Mexican vacation very much!Au Pair Bucks County PA
Of course, we had a lot of funny situations.  For example, I lost my passport in the airport in Mac Donald’s 😂But thanks, God, the Philadelphia’s personal in the airport were very kind and they found me and gave my passport back right next to the plane!
Then, our kids love cabin crew,  so we are always having lovely conversation with the team! Be honest,  if I were a film producer, I would record the movie about our vacation in Mexico! It was very cool, joyful and fun!Au Pair Bucks County PA
Thank you, my dear Alla Gerzon, who is my host mom, who is my best friend, who is my sister, who is an example how to be a Superwomen, Wonder-women and just a Supermom for a such opportunity to explore not only many special places in the States, but also such a lovely country as Mexico!P.S. The Gerzon family is the best!!!
Xoxo. Ukrainian au pair Mariia Bilous ❤️
