Once a match is found the Host Family can look forward to 45-hours of affordable childcare 5 1/2 days per week. Just think of the peace of mind you'll have knowing that your children are being cared for by a professional in the comfort of your own home.
At Au Pair Foundation, we believe the cultural exchange is a two-way street. Our Au Pairs are pre-tested to assure English competency. However, one of the motivating factors for these young people to participate in the program is to hone their language skills. While the predominant language in the household should be English, Au Pairs can teach your children their native language through activities and songs. Au Pairs are encouraged to teach their native languages to the children if the host parents desire.
The benefits to being exposed to other languages are proven to be especially beneficial if done before the age of 10.
At Au Pair Foundation, our mission is to maintain the highest standards in selection and training. Our Au Pairs are trained in stress management, child and infant development and household safety.
The first few months are especially important for the success of this cultural exchange. Your Community Representative will lead Au Pairs and Host Families through Orientation and Communication Activities. Getting off to a good start and establishing open communication will ensure a successful year. In the beginning many questions will arise and finding the right answer is just a small part of what the Community Representative will help you do.
Throughout the 12 month program, Au Pairs and families receive continuous support from our field staff and headquarters. Monthly contact is maintained througout the year by Community Representatives making sure that participants are satisfied with the program. If differences arise, Community Representatives play an important role in the mediation process interfacing with Au Pairs and Host Families to find solutions.
