School year and the Au Pairs

Yesterday I read a very interesting post on the Ohio Local Area Representative’s blog 2013-2014 School Year. Nikki discusses new responsibilities that many Au Pairs will face because of a new school year.

“The 2013-2014 school year has begun!  There are often new routines, new schedules, and new responsibilities that will arise.  Even families with little ones often have classes or other additions to the schedule.  This time of year often requires a change in the Au Pair’s Responsibilities.”  Au Pair Hui China3

Au Pairs can definitely help with homework.  They are able to create a healthy routine of study habits and children can learn in an environment where they feel comfortable.  Many Au Pairs worked as tutors and teachers in their countries and have a lot of teaching experience. They can explain the instructions or new material and check kids’ homework once they are finished.

Au Pairs may help with the language that kids are learning at school. Many parents choose an Au Pair who speaks the language their kids learn at school. Au pair reading

 A new school year is a great time to schedule a class with the Au Pair at home. Au Pairs can also introduce host children to their culture and language. Read Au Pairs and your child’s education by Summer Blackhurst.Au Pair study

Even though, there are many new responsibilities, for Au Pairs who are with school age kids, school also brings some free time. The Au Pairs are looking forward to starting their school too.  Many Au Pairs choose the Au Pair program because they wanted to study and go to college in America.

Good luck with a new school year!
