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.

Did you know about  the Gross National Happiness Index (GNH) that  uses an alternative measure of national and societal prosperity. GNH refers to the concept of a quantitative measurement of well-being and happiness. I am not sure how people cam measure happiness correctly because I believe that everyone’s thoughts of happiness are different.

I think that we often need small things to feel happy and success, money, losing weight and looking great are not on the top of the list of things that make us happy.

Here are 50 things that make people happy I found on the internet.

1. Falling in love.
2. Laughing so hard your face hurts.

16. Finding a 20-pound note in your coat from last winter.
17. Laughing at yourself.
18. Eye contact with a hot member of the opposite sex.
19. Midnight phone calls that last for hours.
20. Running through sprinklers.
21. Laughing for absolutely no reason at all.
22. Having someone tell you that you’re beautiful/good looking.
23. Laughing at an inside joke.
24. Friends.

The Best Au Pair Ever.

The best Au Pair ever – that is how one of the host families from the Philadelphia and NJ cluster who have had seven Au Pairs before,  titled their nomination. “Throughout the past 8 years, I has met many au pairs in this program, so many of whom were wonderful young women.  But I can say, without a doubt, that our Phila stands out as the best of the best,” the host mom wrote.
Go Au Pair agency supported the family opinion and nominated the Au Pair Phila Sozombile  Go Au Pair 2012 Au Pair in Excellence Award.
Several Au Pairs from the Philadelphia NJ cluster were nominated by their host families for Au Pair of the Year Award this year.  I am excited that the Au Pair Phila was recognized as Go Au Pair 2012 Au Pair in Excellence winner. Congratulations, Phila!
Phila’s Host Family wrote an amazing nomination essay that outlined the tremendous impact she has on their family, the hard work and dedication she provides daily and the wonderful connection she has formed with the kids:Au Pair Phila with her host child
“I know that the day that we matched with Phila was probably one of the luckiest things ever to happen to our family because of the light and love she has brought into our home and for the positive influence she has been on the life and character of my daughters.”

I really feel that many Au Pairs from my cluster are the outstanding Au Pairs and deserved the prizes also. They are providing not only a childcare but also are giving the kids their love and friendship, and being a role model for them.
Being a Local Area Representative  for Go Au Pair for almost 4 years, I saw many happy families that continue with this program year after year and have unforgettable experiences. I see many families bond with their Au Pairs – after many years they stay in touch, visit each others and develop long-term friendships through this amazing Au Pair program.
