Every parent of school-aged children knows the feeling you get when you’re looking over the academic calendar and see a day off looming on the horizon. Oh, I didn’t realize that there’s a holiday next week, you think…and then you realize that it’s not a holiday (for you, at least)—it’s a teacher professional development day! The only ones celebrating are your overjoyed kids, who can’t wait for an extra day of play. You, on the other hand, need to make some arrangements and figure out child care for those random teacher in-service days that you just can’t take off.
Teacher professional development days can be disruptive to a family’s schedule, but if your family hosts an au pair with Au Pair in America, you’re in luck!
It’s no problem when the school calendar doesn’t match your work calendar, because your au pair is there to care for your children based on your schedule, in the comfort of your own home. When the academic schedule changes due to professional development days, so can your child care schedule – providing you with peace of mind and keeping your weeks running smoothly. You’ll have the added benefit of saving your vacation time for when you actually want to use it, rather than when you’re in a child care bind.
With Au Pair in America, you can create your own child care schedule of up to 10 hours per day and 45 hours per week. Families with school-aged children may also be interested in our EduCare in America program, designed to meet the needs of families with full-time, school-age children.
