San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 10, 2012
Au Pair Care, an au pair agency that matches American families with international au pairs, today announced that Libby Werba, a new area director in San Jose, California, has joined the team. Libby is responsible for matching international au pairs with local host families in San Jose, as well as providing ongoing support to the matched families and au pairs.
“I’m pleased to join the Au Pair Care team in San Jose, and to begin helping area families learn more about the benefits of au pair child care, while also supporting our existing families,” said Libby Werba, area director, Au Pair Care. “Welcoming an au pair into your home provides your children with more than just safe, reliable child care – it also exposes them to a new language and culture.”
Au Pair Care area directors provide education and support to host families and au pairs, create monthly events, conduct in-home interviews with host families, and provide arrival orientation to new au pairs.
Native to the Bay Area, Libby was born and raised in Silicon Valley. She is a mother of two and understands the challenges involved with finding affordable child care in San Jose. She is currently hosting an au pair from Colombia through Au Pair Care.
“Our area directors are the local bridge that helps Au Pair Care support and connect with our host families and communities,” said Heidi Woehl, vice president, Au Pair Care. “They are a vital part of our team and we’re so happy to have Libby joining their ranks.”
An au pair is a young adult from another country who lives with a family and provides in-home child care services in exchange for room and board and a weekly stipend. Au pairs work up to 45 hours per week, offering a flexible schedule that can accommodate an individual family’s needs.
Au Pair Care’s standard au pair program offers American families one year of live-in child care. Au Pair Care also offers an infant specialized program and an extension program for families who wish to continue the program past the initial 12 months. The cost of an au pair from Au Pair Care is approximately $350 per week, regardless of the number of children in the family. Au Pair Care’s au pairs are between 18 and 26 years old, have extensive child care experience, speak conversational English, and come from more than 40 different countries.
