How to Speed Up Morning Routines for Kids.

I was reading a blog  post of my colleague, Joan Lowell, a Local Area Representative from Providence, Prepare Now for School Next Week! Yes, school is just around the corner and now is the time to prepare the kids for school.

Getting back in the school groove after a long summer break is challenging for the kids and Au Pairs.  There are many responsibilities for Au Pairs who work with school age kids. It is important that kids will be at school on time, but sometimes can be very challenging.

AuPair And Kids
A good idea is starting to play with kids, pretend the morning scenario and help kids to prepare for school morning routine. Au Pairs can start to play at night or weekend using a mom and baby stuffed animal and act out the morning routine. You can give your host kid the “mom” role and play out the scenario.  Make it funny and include scenarios in which a kid animal goes to school in his pjs.

Start to prepare to school at night.

Check out the weather forecast the night before.
Pack up beforehand.
Make lunches ahead of time.

Here are some great ideas to speed up your host kids morning routine.Morning-High-Five

Stick to regular morning routines
Keep the routine as simple as possible.
Get a timer.
Make it a team effort.
Build in extra time.
Give Choices.

The Au Pair may create a morning routine chart for the host kids.

The Au Pair program opens the world.

Could you imagine leaving your country in your early 20 for the first time and flying to a different continent without any support, without knowing that there are people who will assist you?

The Au Pair program opens the world. Many young people are grateful for an opportunity to be an Au Pair  and explore the world. There are many interesting place to explore even around their area when Au Pairs attend Go Au Pair cluster meetings.IMG_9025

2013 year was a great year for the Au Pair Ophelia He from China. She has accomplished a lot thanks to the Au Pair program, her host family in Philadelphia and Go Au Pair agency.

On July 8, 2013  Ophelia arrived to New York! This was the first flight in her life and a long one-a whopping 20 hours.New York workshop

After the New York Workshop, where she met Au Pair Sis and a lot Au Pairs from around the world, Ophelia started her wonderful Au Pair life in Philadelphia.Au Paiirs goaupair

Since her arrival, Ophelia has had so many good memories together with her friends and her host family, many of which have been memorialized  in Ophelia diary.

The Au Pair program opens the world for Ophelia. She has already explored many interesting places in Philadelphia and outside  during her vacation time. Ophelia volunteered at the Philadelphia Marathon, traveled to Atlantic City, spent Thanksgiving in Houston, visited a new host family in Las Vegas, celebrated her first Christmas in Alaska and Chinese New Year in Philadelphia,  and even hiked in Hawaii.

Ophelia has many plans for the future and is grateful for the Au Pair program granting her the opportunity to explore the world.  I think that it has been a great experience for Ophelia’s host family as well.  The family nominated Ophelia Host Family for the IAPA Au Pair of the Year Award in 2014. Read a press release Au Pairs in Excellence Nomination- Au Pairs stand out.
