Do you get to choose the skills of the daycare workers? Not last time I checked. With an au pair, you actually choose the skills needed to match your child/ren!
Do you prefer someone who drives (but not someone who just got his or her license), someone who can swim, cook, or someone with CPR and First Aid certification? You get all this information and more when you look at an au pair profile. You can see exactly how many years and the type of experience and even how many hours of infant care experience an au pair has documented. You can learn about their background and upbringing, and we encourage you to interview in multiple modes so you can see, hear and talk to your au pair before selecting him or her.
The price is right, with up to 45 hours (not more than 10 per day) of childcare for only $340 per week, or up to 30 hours for only $288 per week, no matter how many children in your family! In addition to full child care, au pairs can perform light child-related housekeeping such as child’s laundry or tidying children’s rooms or play areas. You do need a private bedroom for your au pair, since it is a live-in program.
