EduCare in America - 30 hours of child care for approximately $286 per week. This cost-effective program is the choice for families with full-time school-age children who require care primarily during the early morning and after school hours, with some weekend and evening hours. Available in select communities only.

Year2 Au Pairs - au pairs may extend their stay to remain an additional 6, 9 or 12 months after their first year on the program. Some elect to be placed with a different family during the extension term and bring a unique level of experience having already spent one year in the U.S.
