“It creates stability in a child’s life as they, most of the time, will have the same au pair for a year or longer. Au pairs also offer something different for families as they are bringing their culture and beliefs into homes of America.”
“We have been considering the program for 2 years and finally felt ready to have someone living with us. We want our children to be exposed to the culture and language and it will also help us save child care costs.”
“We like the concept for consistency and having someone learn/understand the dynamic and relationships we are trying to create in our family. I am tired of hiring a nanny every 4-5 months so having one child care provider for longer term is huge for us.”
