Summer may be in full swing, but it's already time to start thinking about securing childcare for the Fall! Here are some of the top reasons we hear from parents why welcoming an au pair in August or September is a game changer:
- More Hours in the Day: With an au pair, you'll gain an extra set of hands in the morning before starting your own day. Since au pairs work flexible schedules, they can help get your kids ready in the morning, and then pick up your school-age children in the afternoons while also caring for younger children. You might even be able to fit in a weekly date night again!
- Back to School Time: Au pairs can helpwith the school day - regardless of what the schedule is like - and can be an invaluable resource when it comes to homework help, test preparation, and school projects! Not to mention that language learning is easiest in younger brains " exposure to a non-English speaking au pair may help lay the foundation for your child's second (or third) language learning down the line.
- Divide and Conquer: Kids' schedules can be busy year-round between soccer practice, music lessons, dance class, etc., but the Fall can seem a little busier than other seasons! Imagine not having to scramble to finish your work day in order to get the kids to practice on time or no longer sacrificing one activity because another child's schedule conflicts. Rely on your au pair to help you be in two places at once!
