The Au Pair USA Local Coordinator for Northern New Jersey including the Clifton, Montclair, and Paterson, NJ area is:
Welcome to the North Jersey Cluster! My name is Dawn Middleton and I am happy to say that I have been a Local Coordinator with InterExchange since 1992. Before I became a Local Coordinator, I was a host mom myself! Our family has hosted several au pairs, so I was thrilled when I was offered the opportunity to work for the Au Pair USA program. I really believe in what this program represents and I am excited to show you what it offers to both families and au pairs.
I can tell you from first-hand experience that becoming a host family has many benefits. Hosting au pairs can be a culturally enriching family experience. Children learn about their au pair’s language and culture through food, songs, playtime, games and traditions without ever leaving home. The au pairs enjoy becoming part of the family too, and are often thought of as an older sibling rather than a nanny.
Parents understand the cultural exchange benefits, but many don’t realize that au pairs can also save them a lot of time and money. As a live-in child care provider, au pairs are able to be flexible with their time, so they are more available for school closings, illnesses or other unexpected changes in your child care plans. Au pairs generally cost less, too. The average cost is about $349 per week, and that includes child care for your entire family, not just for one child.
If you are considering hosting an au pair here in the Northern New Jersey area, I would love to hear from you. Talking about the program is what I do best! You can email me anytime, or if you’d like to apply, you can use our quick online host family application.
I am looking forward to meeting you!
