Advantages of Hiring an Au Pair: Trust and Cost-Effective.

Hiring an Au Pair can be a challenging process for a future Host Family. However, the advantages of having an Au Pair in your home far outnumber the advantages of other childcare options.

First of all, you have the opportunity to get to know the Au Pair as a person and build a trust with her.  But you don’t have to worry about checking her background or obtaining references, as the goAUPAIR agency have already done this for you.

Au Pairs are screened, personally interviewed and meet regulatory requirements to qualify for the J1 visa Au Pair program. These regulations include background checks, minimum High School education, minimum hours of childcare experience, verified childcare references and more. All Au Pairs are required to have a minimum number of years of childcare experience, along with CPR and First Aid courses. The Au Pair becomes a valued addition to the  family- equal, trustworthy and loving family member.

Au Pairs provide a reliable and stable child care environment. When parents putting  kids in daycare they really cannot trust who is taking care of their kids. Just because the teachers have their background clearances and CPR certification, doesn’t mean they are reliable and caring. State ratio for most infant rooms is 4 to 1, meaning one teacher can have four kids in her or his care.  So, children aren’t going to get the love and care that they truly deserve because other kids are in need of attention at the same time. In daycare, children are most likely going to get sick a few times per year. Diseases and germs spread around daycare centers, rooms and toys are not properly cleaned and disinfected. Parents are missing their job and  pay or they need to hire somebody to take care about a sick child and pay them money.

Another benefit of hiring an Au Pair is the cost. The popular myth is that only wealthy families can afford Au Pairs. However, Au Pairs can actually be cheaper than daycare or nanny. Having an Au Pair during school holidays, summer breaks, or when parents need to get kids to their after-school activities may also be tremendously helpful and cost effective.

Well-cared and happy children mean a happy family!
