Sadly, Go Au Pair Providence said goodbye to a fantastic Colombian Au Pair in 2015, but luckily, we also said hello to a new and eager young Colombian lady the same year! Thank you, Gloria, for your service and welcome, Marcela, to your new Go Au Pair family! 2016 is going to be great!
As you know, Go Au Pair features a country each month, and offers Host Families a discount for matching with an au pair from that country during the month. For January of 2016, Go Au Pair honors the country of Colombia! Contact me, Joan Lowell, your Go Au Pair LAR, at 401.309.1925 or firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions about the Au Pair Program and your family.
Colombia is home to over 45 million people (as of 2013), compared to the US population of 318 million. We have over seven times more people! Colombia covers an area of 440,800 square miles, while the US covers a whopping 3.8 million square miles and Rhode Island covers only just over 1,200 square miles! Rhode Island could fit inside Colombia over 360 times!
Colombia is a unique country for many reasons, among them the fact that it is the only South American nation which has coasts on both the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea. Like America, Colombia is a multi-ethnic country, but Colombia also has a jungle on its eastern side, populated by Native Indians, who make up about one percent of the nation’s population. Check out some more fun facts about Colombia, for kids and adults too!
Go Au Pair has over 40 au pair candidates available from Colombia right now. Erika is available right away and Kelly is available the first week of March. All Au Pairs pass a 17-point screening process including background check & personality profile, speak English (rated 1-5), receive 32 hours child care training in child development & safety, provide live-in care for children & perform child care 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 & the total cost to you is about $340, or only $288 for a 30 hour part time Au Pair. Each Au Pair completes an educational component.
