Child Care Protection Plan

Peace of Mind and Unprecedented Security

Guaranteed Continuous Child Care from Au Pair in America
If you lose your job, not only will you receive a refund, but we will let you keep your au pair for the remainder of your contract.

Au Pair in America is proud to introduce a child care industry first: the Au Pair in America Child Care Protection Plan. The plan provides peace of mind and unprecedented security to Au Pair in America host families, who, in the event of job loss of a host parent, will receive a substantial refund and the option to keep their au pair for the remainder of their contract.

Benefits:

  • If a host parent loses his or her job, APIA will refund the program fees for the time remaining on the contract, according to APIA's refund calculation schedule.
  • The host family may choose to either keep the au pair for the period of time remaining on their contract, or request to void their contract.
  • Host parents will be able to provide consistency for their kids with uninterrupted child care during a potential period of unemployment.

Child Care Protection Plan Terms: If one, or both, of the hosting parent(s) or custodian(s) involuntarily loses a job that results in the loss of twenty-five percent (25%) or more of the combined incomes of the hosting parent(s) or custodian(s) after the au pair has arrived in the home, AIFS will refund the program fees, for the time remaining on the contract, according to the program’s refund calculation schedule. The host family at their discretion may elect to either retain the au pair for the period of time remaining on her first 12-month term (or, if job loss occurs during the extension term, for the period of time remaining in extension) or request that the program remove the au pair from the home; the program will make every reasonable effort to place the au pair with another family. If the host family retains the au pair, they agree to continue to abide by all program guidelines and policies and must continue to pay the au pair’s weekly stipend and provide all applicable educational benefits. AIFS in its sole discretion will refund the family in accordance with the program’s refund policy based on a review of reasonable documentation proving the loss of income that must be furnished by the hosting parent(s) or custodian(s) to the program.
