Satisfied and comprehensive childcare

For many parents, finding satisfied and comprehensive childcare childcare can be stressful, especially if there is a need for a flexible schedule and affordable cost.  Even though, there are many childcare options available, many families choose the Au Pair Program for their childcare needs.

Au Pairs provide 45 hours (FT) or 30 hours (PT) of live in child care. Their duties can include: light housekeeping, children’s laundry, meal preparation, homework/tutoring help, organization, transportation, and much more. Some Au Pairs have experience with babies, infant multiples, and kids with special needs.

Many parents say that the Au Pair program is a satisfied and comprehensive childcare and a life saver!  “Go Au Pair has been a life saver! We have 4 children and daycare expense was out of the question! Having an au pair has given us the ability to be able to go to work worry free and at an affordable cost! Our current au pair has become part of our family! We will be sad when she returns home in February! But we are also excited to bring in another au pair to our family! We highly recommend go au pair and the service they provide!”

Go Au Pair agency has nearly 300 nannies au pairs available -Infant Qualified, First Aid and CPR Certified, able to drive, from Europe, Asia, Africa, North and South America, males, females, doctors, nurses, teachers, engineers, lawyers, students, coaches, dancers, soccer players, musicians…you name it, we probably have it! They will bring a satisfied and comprehensive childcare to the families. See more

Mission of the Au Pair Program

According to Go Au Pair agency,”The Au Pair Program is an amazing opportunity to introduce a cultural childcare experience to your family “Heart Au Pairs

Many host families welcome the life-enriching experiences that are tied to cultural exchange. The program’s mission is to build friendships, learn other cultures and better understand other people. The Host Family Mission is to

  • Positively represent the United States
  • Include the Au Pair as a member of the family
  • Assist and encourage their Au Pair to experience American life
  • Understand that they are the Au Pair’s family while she is in the US
  • Guide the Au Pair through completing her Au Pair program

I like a very positive and encouraging statement that Summer Blackhurst, the author of Go Au Pair blog, wrote in her post, “The Au Pair program is a life changing experience and, while it doesn’t come without its share of challenges, the attachments, cultural benefits, and even losses are all worth it. Being an Au Pair or having an Au Pair changes people for the better.”

I think that Summer posted the best explanation of the Au Pair program mission, ” a life changing experience that changes people for the better.”
