Au Pair Care, an au pair agency that matches American families with international au pairs, today announced that Meredith Sawers, area director in the Bronx, New York, has re-joined the team. Meredith is responsible for matching international au pairs with local host families in the Queens and Bronx boroughs, as well as providing ongoing support to the matched families and au pairs.
"It feels great to be back with the New York Au Pair Care team," said Meredith Sawers, area director, Au Pair Care. "The au pair program has genuine value to families in the Queens and Bronx boroughs. I look forward to connecting with local families to help them find their ideal child care solution."
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.
Originally from New Zealand, Meredith came to the United States to study karate and become an au pair for a New York family. She is a mother of two and understands the challenges New York families face when trying to select the best child care option. In her spare time, Meredith teaches karate in New York City.
“Our area directors have an indispensable role on the Au Pair Care team, supporting our host families and au pairs,” said Heidi Woehl, vice president, Au Pair Care. “We’re thrilled to welcome back Meredith and help our organization build connections in the Queens and Bronx boroughs of New York.”
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.
