For British families looking to take on au pairs this year, one au pairs agency highlights the need to consider three important aspects before committing to a long term arrangement.
United Kingdom, August 2010 - As more and more UK families discover the very real benefits of employing au pairs to assist with bringing up the children, looking after the children or helping with the running of the home, the challenge becomes ever greater of finding au pairs who are a suitable long term match, and who will be able to work positively with the family. Busy Bee Au Pairs has advice and recommendations for any family or parent considering the idea of au pairs this year.
Busy bee Au pairs suggests that there are three essential problems relating to the employment of au pairs by UK families. The first of these is the challenge of identifying au pairs who have been thoroughly background checked to ensure that they are safe to work with children in a home environment. Today concerns are clearly of a more critical nature than ever before, and it will be one of the priorities for any family to ensure all potential au pairs are thoroughly checked. Busy Bee Au Pairs is a member of the BAPAA, the British Au Pairs Agencies' Association, membership of which means that strict background checks are carried out in full compliance with the very latest requirements of the UK Government. This provides peace of mind to parents.
The second issue is whether au pairs will fit into the family itself. Personalities can clash, and long term values and preferences can result in issues which were not apparent or even considered in the early days. This can cause a range of problems, and can be a trying and stressful experience for both the family and the au pairs. Busy Bees Au Pairs have realised this issue, and has implemented a careful screening process which aims to match up au pairs with families on the basis of character, personality and values, ensuring a long term, happy and successful partnership.
The third aspect, often overlooked, is the long term support for both the family and the au pairs. Many agencies simply leave families and their au pairs alone once the appointment has been made. However Busy Bees Au Pairs believe that support is crucial throughout the entire period of time au pairs are employed to work within a family's home. Therefore regular on-going support is provided to ensure that the arrangement works to the benefit of both parties.
