Former Au Pairs and host kids choose the Au Pair Program for their families.

The concept of the Au Pair originated in Europe after World War II. The Au Pair Program, according to Wikipedia,  started in the United States in 1989, it means 30 years ago. Many American parents today know about the Au Pair program because they had been an Au Pair in France, Germany, China and other foreign countries and/or their parents hosted the Au Pair.

Interest in an Au Pair Program in the US began when two agencies applied to the United States Information Agency (USIA) to conduct a program. Then, in 1989, the program was expanded to include six additional government designated companies. Go Au Pair is one of the originally designated Au Pair Agencies and has been administering the program for 30 years.

The Au Pair Program has been very successful and there are 16 Au Pair agencies and approximately 18,000 Au Pairs in the United States today. It means that many host kids had the opportunity of having cultural exchange experience firsthand.

The former Au Pairs and host kids become great host parents. There are three former Au Pairs who are now host moms in the Philadelphia cluster: Tatiana K., Natalie R., and Andreea A. The host families love the program so much from their personal experience, that they have considered using Au Pair childcare for their children. 

The Go Au Pair agency always asks the potential host families, in their applications, the reason for joining the Au Pair program. I was pleased to read that a new host mom keeps great memories of the time with her Au Pair,  “My mom and dad had an Au Pair when I was first born and I would love to provide the same experience for my family now.”

The host moms know from their personal experience that the Au Pairs will provide meaningful loving childcare and a culturally enriching experience for the whole family.

The Au Pair program builds global families by bringing together international visitors with American host families and the connections. between them become priceless.  Au Pairs seem increasingly common in Philadelphia and the surrounding area. In addition to cultural exchange, families name benefits such as flexible scheduling, and more one-on-one attention for their children.

Au Pair childcare -amazing experience!

Recently several host families from the Philadelphia and NJ cluster welcomed new Au Pairs. The families said that they had a unique and amazing experience with their former Au Pairs. Host families said that their Au Pairs went above and beyond basic childcare, they participated in the host family lives and activities of the children, became a big sisters/brothers to their kids and a part of their families.  The Au Pairs already planned to visit their host family.

Au Pair childcare provides the family with flexible live-in childcare -snow days or sick days are no longer a problem. Host families feel secure with their Au Pairs.

The Au Pair acts as an older sibling and host children imitate her/his behavior. They are able to stimulate an active play, like going out and running with the kids and doing creative stuff. Kids love to spend time with their Au Pair.

Au pairs are young, energetic individuals who love what they do and genuinely want to succeed. Go Au Pair has many outstanding Au Pairs. This year several Au Pairs from the Philadelphia and NJ cluster were nominated by their host families for Au Pair of the 2013 Year Award .  The Au Pair Phila  from South Africa was recognized as Go Au Pair 2012 Au Pair in Excellence winner.

An Au Pair – bilingual childcare provider

Au Pairs provide child care and at the same time can introduce a new language to the children.

Besides being a flexible and most importantly, an affordable option for child care, Au Pairs offer what other forms of child care can’t: cultural exchange. Children can learn a new language for free with native speakers, while broadening their perspectives and world knowledge; which in today’s world is considered to be priceless.

Hiring an Au Pair who speaks the language of the family’s choice is a perfect option. An Au Pair helps children learn a second language through study & play.

Au Pair Child Care is a popular option  used by parents to help their children learn a second language. Since Au Pairs are constantly with children, they give them the opportunity to practice their second language. An Au Pair not only motivates children to learn the language, but she teaches them the language with native pronunciation and grammar.

A cognitive neuroscientist, Ellen Bialystok has spent almost 40 years learning about how bilingualism sharpens the mind says that “There are two major reasons people should pass their heritage language onto children. First, it connects children to their ancestors. The second is my research: Bilingualism is good for you. It makes brains stronger. It is brain exercise.”

Having your child learn a second language gives a child a distinct educational advantage that will last a lifetime .

Watch the movie Benefits of Learning a Foreign Language.

You may create a bilingual learning environment for your children with an Au Pair childcare too.
