I need suggestions on what I can do to off set my Au Pair’s hours!
With the summer months upon us and the end of the school year, I am stressed out about how to off set my Au Pair’s hours so she does not exceed the 45 hours a week.
Both my husband and I are active duty and work long hours. Our Au Pair’s hours have never been an issue when the kids are in school.
What I don’t want to do it throw money at the problem by enrolling the kids in summer camps and other programs. We already pay a lot towards the Au Pair program and don’t have additional money for more childcare.
I have checked with the local libraries and schools but most of the programs offered at an hour or less and requires an adult to accompany the kids.
What ideas do you have that are within the guidelines of the Au Pair Program, that might help my family?
