I have hosted two Au Pairs and the experience and convenience was great and it didn't cost me an arm and a leg. You can have in home childcare for $195.75 a week for up to six children. Au Pairs work up to 45 hours a week and are responsible for all things pertaining to the children while they are on the clock (i.e. Laundry, cooking, homework help, cleaning their rooms, etc..)
Currently we're offering a a $250 discount and that would cover your application fee. We have three programs infant care, standard care and educare.
