20,000 views on my blog.

Another blogging milestone. Today I reached 20,000 page views of my blog! I’m excited to receive this many page views.  Thank you to everyone for spending a little time with my blog.

I started Go Au Pair blog at September 2010 to support Host Families and Au Pairs in Philadelphia and suburban, Montgomery, Bucks County and close NJ. It took me one and a half years to reach 20,000 page views of my blog.

My blog contains 132 posts and 28 pages. Many people contributed to my blog, writing interesting posts and even series of posts. I would like to thank you my former Au Pair Lala from South Africa, who wrote My Au Pair Year.

The host mom Anna, who is in her six year of hosting au pairs,  kindly contribute to this blog. She wrote many posts which are very  popular in her series From An Au Pair mom. Anna also answered many questions that new host families often ask. How can a young Au Pair be a good caregiver?  Which country is the best au pair from?   No doubt that many of her posts have so many hits!

I also would like thank you the Au Pair Juliana,  from Brazil, who lives now in Bucks County near Philadelphia, for writing her wonderful Au Pair Journal, and many other Au Pairs. I can’t do this without your help and support.

I enjoy working as a Local Area Representative for Go Au Pair. We do many interesting things together with Au Pairs from my cluster: going to the interesting  places, organizing parties, volunteering and supporting each other like a big family. This blog is the place where we can share our wonderful experience with each other and you, my dear reader.
If you are reading this blog for the first time welcome to Au Pair world!
Thanks for checking out my blog  and I hope you’ll return soon!

YOU KNOW YOU’RE AN AU PAIR WHEN…

Hi, everyone!

Here are my friends Au Pairs from Go Au Pair agency and I at the Brazilian Festival  which we had recently, here, in Bucks County, near Philadelphia. It was the best event ever and we had a lot of fun.

Spring is coming, the weather is getting warmer and warmer and our host kids are becoming VERY excited about all the activities we’re about to do.

I often find myself more excited about some things than my kids, though…

and that’s the topic of this post.

  You know you’re an au pair when...

You have a list of  your favorite Sesame Street videos (and insist with a two year-old that that’s better than others).

Here’s a list of mine:

Ok Go: colors

C is for Cookies

Elmo’s song

Elmo’s got the moves

Feist’s 1234

Ricki Gervais’ Elmo Lullaby

Well, that’s it for today. I’ll be back soon with more fun stuff.

See ya!

An Au Pair Again

When Au pair program year or two passed by, it is very sad to say goodby to their host family, friends and the LAR.

Many Au Pairs want to come to US again to be an Au Pair and lots of families would love to host their Au Pair again. The US government recently announced that it will allow Au Pairs who successfully completed their first Au Pair program  and are aged between 18 and 26 years old to return as an aupair again.

Go Au Pair offers the Au Pair Again  program.

The Au Pair Again program allows former Au Pairs to return to the U.S. again with their original family or with a new one. Through the Au Pair Again program, Au Pairs must meet the standard Au Pair requirements in addition to providing proof of successful completion of their initial Au Pair program, including the education requirement. You also have to reside outside of the U.S. for at least two consecutive years following the initial program.

Au Pairs may use a different agency than the one used in their initial program. Also, Au Pairs have the option to participate in a different program, such as EduCare, Plus or Premiere as an Au Pair Again.

Au Pairs participating in the Au Pair Again program are required to complete 6 credit hours of education at an accredited, post-secondary university during their first year or 12 hours if participating in the EduCare program.

Au pairs will have the chance to relive memories, meet friends and families and see all those things they missed first time.
