Hire an Extending Au Pair.

Go Au Pair agency has many in country Au Pairs who are currently living with the Host Families and are looking to extend with a new family. There are two types of in country Au Pairs – Transition and Extension. Friendship has wings

First time Host Families often ask me which Au Pair will be better for their family: an Extension transfer Au Pair (in the country second year Au Pair) or a new one?

Extending Au Pairs are those who successfully completed a year with another host family. They are already residing within the US and have their J1 visa. They need to apply for an extension of the Form DS-2019, but it is simple. New Au Pairs depend on their J1 visa approval, so there are more chances that an extending Au Pair will be at the time the family needs her.Au Pair Bucks county

Extension transfer Au Pairs are typically available to start with a new family in a few months and are available for placements lasting 12, 9 or 6 months. You can read more about Extension Au Pairs.Aupair childcare

An extension Au Pair, or the second year Au Pair,  don’t need nearly as much time to adjust as a new Au Pair,  has a social security number, a bank account, and  has experience of living in the US. An extension Au Pair is usually more experienced, considered, adopted and conformed to the Au Pair program.au pairs love kids

 Another benefit of an extension Au Pair is that a host family can speak with her Local Area Representative. The host family can also speak with an Au Pair’s host family in the US. The family may have an additional reference and compare own needs and parenting styles. Also, if the family needs a driver, there are a lot of extending Au Pairs who have been driving in the US.Au pair bucks county

Sometimes the family can interview their prospective Au Pair in person or can be lucky to find an Au Pair who is  an Au Pair in excellence.

There are many factors to consider.  You can read the discussion “Would you recommend an Extension Au Pair or a new au pair” from AUPAIRMOM blog.
