Bay Area residents will now be able to enjoy Au Pair childcare for all their children. An Au Pair is a young adult who comes to the United States to live with a family while providing 45 hours of child care each week in exchange for room and board and a small stipend.
"We are excited to announce the Bay Area as our newest service area. There seems to be a large number of people interested in cultural exchange who also need child care," said Devon Kapler, director of global expansion at Go Au Pair.
"Although there is no blanket childcare solution, we are confident the people of the Bay Area will enjoy having an Au Pair as a childcare option"
Established in 1989 by the Department of State, the Au Pair Program was created to help increase cultural exchange and international relations. Hosting an Au Pair allows families across the country the chance to learn about another culture and language, while benefiting from full time child care. Au Pairs also benefit from the program with the opportunity to learn about the United States and improve their English.
With the new service area, Bay Area residents will enjoy a new Local Area Representative from Go Au Pair that will personally meet with and interview Host Families, ensuring they meet the regulations set by the Department of State and help them understand the benefits of hosting an Au Pair. Along with helping Host Families, Local Area Representatives also host activities for Au Pairs in the area, allowing the young international adults a chance to get to know the Bay Area, and meet other local Au Pairs and share learning experiences. Families interested in live-in childcare and cultural exchange should contact the Go Au Pair corporate office at 888.AUPAIR1.
