Taxes aren’t much fun, but they have to be done, even by au pairs. On Sunday, March 18th, Cindy Garruba Senior Community Counselor in Suffolk County for Au Pair in America helped the au pairs prepare their tax returns. Cindy handed out the forms, directions and provided the steps to complete the returns provided by Au Pair in America’s Stamford office. Taxes done, they will mail them in on or before the April 17th deadline date!
Since Spring has sprung early here on Long Island, we reviewed playground safety. Tips on safety can be found on the APIA website http://www.aupairinamerica.com/resources/safety_tips/ . Au Pair in America considers the safety of the children in our au pairs’ care of the utmost importance. The au pairs also viewed a video about playground safety
We also shared how important friendship is in the Au Pair program. “Strangers are just friends waiting to happen.” Lifelong friendships are formed as au pairs. We exchanged friendship bracelets to remember to reach out to each other when we need a friend!
