Learning Spanish? June is the perfect month to match with a Spanish-speaking au pair from Ecuador! Go Au Pair is offering a $100 discount to Host Families matching with an Ecuadorian au pair during the month of June! Or, choose any country you want and get our best discount offered! Visit our local page here in RI to get the details and sign up!
What do you want to know about Ecuador? An au pair can bring the culture and language of their country right into your home for an entire year, or even two! Au pairs provide up to 45 hours of flexible childcare each week for a set amount, and they can do other childcare-related tasks like kids’ laundry, light meal/snack prep and clean up, and even supervising homework and chores! Au pairs are happy to teach their native songs to their American host children, as the children will teach them our songs. Au pairs bring new and different games, traditions and activities to their American Host Families, as well as engage themselves in our American culture.
In addition to all of that help around the house, you get the daily language immersion of whatever language you choose! The whole world is learning Spanish, and what better way than to have your own personal tutor living with you for a year? Au pairs also want to improve their English, so they make perfect learning partners! Au pairs also have childcare experience, some thousands of hours, with children ages 3 months and up. If you need flexible, reliable childcare in your home, an au pair is an affordable, realistic option.
You do need an extra bedroom, since it is a live-in position, but more than an employee, your au pair should become more like another family member, involved in family activities and events, but also with a social life and school to attend outside the home. The Department of State has overseen and regulated this program since the late 1980s and Go Au Pair has been there from the beginning. Go ahead and get a written offer from one of those other big-box agencies in CT or MA. Then come back to me, here in RI, for the best cultural childcare experience ever! We will even match or beat those other offers!
