Summer is coming and most of us are planning our holidays. The children's school holiday will start on Monday 25th July 2016 (last day at school should be Friday 22nd July 2016) and the school will start again on Monday 5th September 2016. That totals to 6 weeks of no school !! fun for kids but not us parents. Not everybody is lucky enough to have parents who are willing to look after grandchildren for 6 weeks. Majority of parents I met are struggling with childcare during the summer and the spaces in local summer clubs are limited.
Summer Aupair is a great childcare option. Aupair will stay with you for 3-4 months but we also provide Aupairs for 6-8 weeks. Aupairs are paid according to the working hours, minimum is £70 a week for 25 hours, £80 for 30 hours and £90-100 a week for 35 hours a week. If you require Aupair to work 40 hours a week, the pocket money goes up to £120-130 a week and for 50 hours it is £150-170 a week. They have two days off a week. The host family provides food, and accommodation (their own bedroom in your home).
Another advantage of having a summer Aupair is that most of us are travelling during the summer and we need to pay for kennels and catery for our pets. Why not getting a summer Aupair to look after your home and your pets??. The catery cost £9-15 per night per cat and kennels £14-20 per night per dog (this is Bedfordshire area arount Luton, Leighton Buzzard, Dunstable). Having an Aupair in your home not only allows your pets to stay in their own home and avoid the stress of travelling to catery/kennels, staying in catery/kennels but also gives you the advantage of your home being look after whilst you are on holiday. Please note that Aupairs mnimum stay is 6 -8 weeks.
