Child Care is Self-Care

Everyone wants more of it, and no one has enough of it. As parents, we often enter the new year with promises of making more time for what’s important as well as prioritizing self-care. How can you keep these resolutions, while managing, household, family, and professional commitments? Au Pair in America is here to help!

The Au Pair in America program allows young people from all over the world, aged 18 to 26, to travel to the U.S. on the Exchange Visitor Program for a unique cultural exchange experience. For more than 30 years, these young people have traveled to the US for a chance to experience American life, while living with an American family and caring for their young children for up to 45 hours per week. Tanja Manley, a former au pair herself, is the Community Counselor for Au Pair in America in the Southwest Ohio region. She supports both au pairs and host families in the area, with the goal of ensuring all participants have a meaningful exchange experience.

Benefits of the Au Pair in America program:
  • Flexibility – the au pair program is designed to be flexible. Host families can customize the schedule each week. Great for families with busy, non-traditional, or variable schedules.
  • Reliability –snow days, sick days, and all the other “curve balls” life throws your way – your au pair is there (right in your home!) to help.
  • Cultural Exchange – we’d all love to travel the world, but the Au Pair in America program allows you to bring a bit of the world into your home. Au Pairs share their culture with your family, and help teach your children about the greater world
