We currently have at least two in-country au pairs with a U.S. driver’s license looking to transition to new Host Families.
Deisy Rossely Hernandez Trevino, who is a 20 year old Mexican au pair, is infant certified, skis, swims, cooks, drives (with her U.S. license) and will place with pets; she is looking to match with a new family by Christmas and stay with them through mid-August 2013.
Monique Botes is a 22 year old South African au pair who also has her New Jersey driver’s license, is infant qualified, swims, cooks, will place with a family with pets, and is available from Christmas through the first week of September, 2013.
Many au pairs come to the U.S. with an International Driver’s License, which may be recognized and accepted by law enforcement individuals in some states. In R.I., the International Driver’s License is recognized for one year, and then an individual should take the state driving test to get a permit and state license if he or she is planning to extend for any part of a second year. The laws vary from state to state, so check with your local insurance company or department of motor vehicles.
All Au Pairs pass a 17-point screening process, background check, personality profile, speak English (rated 1-5), receive 32 hrs child care training in child development & safety, provide live-in care & perform child-related tasks like meal prep for kids, children’s laundry, cleaning children’s playroom & bedrooms. Full time Au Pairs work up to 45 hours per week for about $340, or up to 30 hrs for $288. Each Au Pair also completes an educational component.
