In honor of Valentine’s Day, we’d like to share a few reasons why hosting an au pair will sweep you off your feet!
Here are the Top 7 Things to Love About Hosting an Au Pair:
Do you have an early morning meeting coming up, or an evening event, or even a much-needed date night with your spouse? When you host an au pair, you have the flexibility to set your own schedule based on your specific needs!
2. Your morning routine will be much calmer.
Getting yourself and your kids dressed, fed, out the door, and to work/school/daycare on time is no easy feat! Au pairs make the morning routine considerably easier for parents by providing an extra set of hands.
3. Your family will love learning first-hand about another culture.
With an international visitor living in your home and sharing her culture with you and your children, you’ll be celebrating new holidays and learning about the world in a unique, hands-on way.
4. Your children could learn another language!
If you host an au pair, your children will pick up new words and phrases in no time! Au pairs love to sing, read, and count with the children in their native language. Magnifique!
5. Snow day? ‘S’no problem!
When winter weather strikes or other unexpected situations arise, you don’t have to worry about changing your schedule around to arrange care for your children—they’ll be safe and sound in the comfort of their own home.
6. Your family could make a lifelong friend.
The hosting experience often leads to the development of long-lasting relationships between host families and au pairs, who become like real family to each other. While your au pair’s time with you will eventually come to an end, that doesn’t mean she won’t be a part of your life forever.
