Why New Jersey Families Choose to Use Au Pair Services
Many people looking for child care options want to know the advantages of getting an au pair, especially when compared with other possibilities. One thing our families prize about having an au pair is the flexibility it offers working parents. You no longer have to worry about getting home from work before the day care closes or making special arrangements when you have to go in to work early. An au pair will be there to cover you during those frantic moments.
Your children benefit in other ways, too. They will learn an immense amount about another country and culture just by interacting with your au pair. She can explain how things are different in her country and help them understand more about the world. As business and education become more globalized, those are exceptional things to teach your child.

"We've now known Lorena for eight months, and we know that it is true: from her smile alone, you can see her sweetness, warmth and honesty. We have seen two important holidays, five birthday parties, and various other get-togethers hosted in our home. Through it all, Lorena has always been exceptionally flexible, giving us the peace of mind that is so needed when everything else around us may be a little stressful.
We have been so lucky to give our daughters such a wonderful role model. Lorena is so intelligent, caring, attentive and tireless. She gets silly and playful when our girls need her to be, but responsible and attentive as well. She can always be counted on."
