For many families, hosting an au pair can be a life-changing child care assistance option. Host mom Danielle in Maryland recently shared this account of how the au pair program has impacted her life during the COVID-19 pandemic and explains why having a live-in child care option has been so important to her:
If it were not for the Department of State’s au pair program (and my au pair, Denize) I would not be able to work during this pandemic…
It’s not easy being an au pair in the midst of a global pandemic. Quarantining, social isolation and social distancing are not the norm for anyone, but certainly not for the young people who signed up to be part of a cultural exchange program. Complicating matters is arriving in the time of COVID-19 and figuring out how to introduce your au pair to her new home when your city is shut down.
The Schindler family in Houston and their new au pair, Ellen, ran into this problem, but have taken lemons and made lemonade.
An au pair can truly make a huge difference in the lives of a host family, especially during extraordinary times like these. Check out this beautiful reflection from one of our host families in Maryland about their experiencing hosting au pair Pauline during the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact she’s made on their lives.
