Childcare with After School Pick Up + Homework Help

/Childcare with After School Pick Up + Homework Help

It’s hard to find childcare with after school pick up, unless you host an Au Pair.

Finding reliable & affordable childcare with after school pick up is a major problem facing many American families. So is getting good homework help. Go Au Pair has your help!

Hosting an Au Pair is a great solution to more than one parenting problem (you don’t have to tell me how overwhelming parenting can get). The flexibility and convenience of hosting benefit both single and two-parent working families with kids of all ages. 

Grandma doesn’t drive, or maybe can’t be there every day. A hired sitter or nanny might be there. Your Au Pair can. Schedule work hours that are convenient for your family.

Neither you or your husband can be at the bus stop or after school pick up? Your Au Pair can. She can even pick the kids up after school and take them to lessons or special activities.

Need homework help AND childcare?

Au pairs can help with homework after school

Families find the after school time stressful, with more than one child completing homework. An Au Pair can help watch the baby and help your older children with homework too. .

An Au Pair can help pick up the kids after school, provide a snack and homework supervision. He or she can even bring the kids to the park or pool. 

When you host an Au Pair, all of this can happen before you even get home from work! Did I mention she can help with kids’ laundry? Yes, anything childcare-related is game.

With an Au Pair, your kids will love the additional one-on-one attention. They might forget they are doing their homework or completing chores. (Don’t expect that from a nanny).

When you compare childcare from an Au Pair vs nanny care, it becomes apparent that Au Pairs can offer so much more.

Kids taking a foreign language? Just interested in foreign language exposure? An Au Pair can help with after school pick up, homework help, and even expand your kids’ horizons!

Where else can you find childcare with after school pick-up? 

Au Pairs are the best Childcare with After School Pick Up

Big box daycare centers have vans that will take your kids from school to daycare. Hopefully, you don’t work past six o’clock, because daycare is closing. Your Au Pair will pick up the children after school in your family car.

Daycare charges per child. But Au Pair cost remains the same regardless of the number of children. One price includes all your kids, pick up where and when you need it, with all the extras that daycare or a nanny can never provide.

An Au Pair can provide after school childcare until you are home!

No more rushing to daycare before they close. An Au Pair can work up to ten hours each day and not more than 45 hours per week. That is nine hours each day if you have the average job. If not, an Au Pair can be flexible with YOUR work schedule.

Single parents find peace of mind with the reliability of hosting an Au Pair. Your Au Pair can be there when you can’t. You can finally plan that regular trip to the gym or night out with friends!

An Au Pair can prepare, serve and clean up light meals too. If you or your spouse work late, your Au Pair can work those peak hours and keep the kids from running ragged. An Au Pair can keep order in your home when you (and your kids) need it most.

How flexible can an Au Pair’s schedule be?

How flexible can an Au Pair's schedule be?

After school childcare with pick up is nearly impossible with some work schedules. Some families have one, or both parents, with flexible or rotating work schedules. 

As long as potential Host Families are clear about the expected schedule and hours, an Au Pair can work when you need. Some even work split shifts with hours both before and after school. Your kids won’t miss a beat!

Sick days are no problem when your Au Pair can stay home with the little one. Your Au Pair can even pick up your sick child from school! That’s how flexible hosting an Au Pair can be.

“After years of stress and frustration, and many different nannies, we decided to look for an au pair. When Veronika arrived on January 2, 2016 our lives were forever changed. We had no idea that a real life Mary Poppins had just arrived!”

Carrie • Host Mom, Au Pair in Excellence Runner-up

“I can honestly say that bringing her to live with us as our au pair has been the best decision we could possibly have made. She has afforded us so many priceless “intangibles” during her time here that I can’t begin to quantify her contributions to our family.”
