All Au Pairs speak English (rated 1-5), pass a 17-point screening process including background check & personality profile, receive 32 hours child care training in child development & safety in their native language and provide live-in care for children from twelve weeks to the late teen years. They can also perform child care related tasks like meal/snack prep and clean-up for kids, children’s laundry, cleaning children’s playroom & bedrooms. Since it is a cultural exchange program, each Au Pair is responsible for an educational component to complete his or her program.
Go Au Pair is happy to bring this unique service to American families. We currently have a number of men and women already in the country and available for immediate match and service. Read about a couple of our Chinese Au Pair candidates who would love to improve their English while helping you and your family learn some Mandarin. That’s part of the mutually beneficial relationship fostered by this great program.
Nyushan, known as Sarah to her American friends, is 23 years old and is a college graduate trained as an English teacher (her English is rated good). Sarah is Infant Qualified and ready to start right away with your children, ages twelve weeks and up; she can stay until next August! Currently caring for 5 children and living near Washington, DC, Sarah needs to find a new Host Family by the end of this month. She can cook and drive and is hoping to find a traditional married couple or single mom who needs her help.
Biying, known as Grace to her American family and friends, is 21 years old, also Infant Qualified, has some college in the area of tourism. Grace has a whopping 3,100 hours of documented service with children under age two, including experience with such special needs as physical defects, heart and spinal disease. She is very flexible about her potential Host Family, and is willing to match with traditional or gay/lesbian married couples and single parents of either gender. Currently caring for two children and living near Monroe, NY, she can stay through the end of November, when she may be eligible to extend another 6, 9 or 12 months.
Why do you need an Au Pair? Parents benefit by having a little time for one-to-one parent-child activities, to work late without the worry, or even a date night. Parents who host an Au Pair get an added family member to help with the responsibilities around the house. They finally get a chance for some personal time or are able to attend that game, recital or doctor’s appointment.
Prices are competitive for families already paying multiple forms of childcare for multiple children. Families get up to 45 flexible hours (not more than 10 per day) of childcare for only $354 per week, or up to 30 hours for only $301 per week. These are hours you set according to your needs each week! In addition to full child care, au pairs can perform light child-related housekeeping such as tidying children’s rooms or play areas, and yes, even do kids’ laundry. You do need a private bedroom for your au pair, since it is a live-in program.
