Description

Episode Notes:

With 3 babies, Pooja was overwhelmed - husband suggested an AuPair & it fit better into their budget than daycare or nanny

Cultural Care is headquartered in Boston - largest organization for AuPairs
similar to an exchange student situation but with an adult

2 year cultural exchange Visa, there are certain rules of what they can/cannot do

They get paid 195.75 per week (more if there are many children) and can't work more than 45 hrs/week

It is strictly childcare related, so they can't things a nanny would do - clean up, take care of animals, etc...

18-26 is the age range to be an AuPair

As a host family, you pick out all the details - age, level of english, vegetarian, etc,

Interview process is similar to online dating

There are more female AuPairs, but there are a lot of males as well

Males are often placed with older kids to serve as a positive role model (many single moms use this option)
If the family has only boys, they often choose a male AuPair

Male AuPairs are good about their manners & about teaching manners

Costs
Directy to the AuPair 195.75
Host family pays for them to attend ESL or similar classes (up to 500)
Agency cost is 9k per year
Total is approx 20k yearly

Make sure the agency you work with is registered with The State Department.

AuPairs are responsible for their own taxes and they or the agency is responsible for health insurance
