Au Pair Care, an au pair agency that matches American families with international au pairs, today announced that Allison Mullay, a new area director in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania, has joined the team. Allison is responsible for matching international au pairs with local host families in Lehigh Valley, as well as providing ongoing support to the matched families and au pairs.
"I am very excited to join the Au Pair Care team in Lehigh Valley, and I look forward to educating families about the many benefits when it comes to selecting an au pair as a child care option," said Allison Mullay, area director, Au Pair Care. "When you open your home to an au pair, you are not only providing your family the safe, secure and reliable child care they deserve. You are also opening their eyes and minds 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 Lehigh Valley, Allison is a mother of two preschool daughters and understands the challenges Lehigh Valley families face when trying to select the best child care option for their children.
“Our area directors are passionate about supporting our current host families and connecting local communities to their ideal child care solution,” said Heidi Woehl, vice president, Au Pair Care. “Allison understands the challenges that Lehigh Valley families face when deciding on a child care option, and she will play an indispensable role to our organization. We are thrilled to have her join our team.”
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.
