June 2015 Newsletter
Hi Host Families & Au Pairs,
We had a blast attending the Color Run in Washington DC. Check out our photo album:
Here’s what’s going on in June:
June: 6-13/14 Beach weekend in Rehoboth (Saturday/Sunday) We will be leaving Saturday morning to head to Lewes, DE and will spend the day at the beach (weather permitting) and outlet shopping ☺ We will be having dinner at the famous Nicola Pizza in Rehoboth and will spend the night at my friends house. We will be leaving Rehoboth Sunday afternoon!
This is an optional meeting – I understand that not all au pairs can/want to spend their weekend with the group. I will have a ‘make up’ meeting at my house on
Friday, June 19th at 7:30 pm for a check in.
Upcoming Au Pair Meetings:
July: 7-12-15 afternoon: Pool party! (water safety meeting)
Izzy’s host family has graciously offered their pool <3
August: 8-23-15 from 4pm to 7pm.
Meet and greet picnic at Scotts Cove. Please bring a dish to share – I will bring sodas/water and utensils☺
Scott’s Cove has a playground and picnic tables within walking distance of its parking lot. Address: 10972 Harding Road, Laurel, 20723
Voting for next year’s meetings:
Au Pairs had the opportunity to chose what activities they would like to do next year! I offered options for most months and we voted on what activity we will do in 2015/16. The final calendar is attached.
Some of you have had questions about why I contact you every month, au pair meetings, vacations and other program requirements. I have attached a list of the requirements for your records. If you have any questions or concern, do not hesitate to contact me ☺
Please welcome Areli to our group. Areli will be with her host family in Laurel and will be taking care of 3 (sometimes 2) kids in elementary school (and one in an awesome boarding school) Areli is a extension au pair from Mexico and she will be with us for her 9 month extension☺
Host Family Referrals through September 2015
As you know Cultural Care offers a $250 referral bonus, but I wanted to up the ante. If you refer a family anywhere in the US who registers and welcomes an au pair by September 2015, you will receive $250 in cash or credit from Cultural Care. If the family reaches out to me first, if you give me their information and I contact them, or if they go through my website, I will add an additional $100, so you will receive $350 for any family you refer who welcomes an au pair BY SEPTEMBER 2015.
To make sure you get the bonus: Please give me a quick head's up via text/email/call if you are talking with anyone you think is interested so I can make sure they are in the system under your name. I only need their name, location, email and/or phone. This ensures that I cannot only become their main point of contact and can oversee the matching process, but I can also make sure you receive the host family referral bonus from Cultural Care.
You can always send your friends to my website where they can find out more information and discount details: http://tsauer.aupairnews.com/
They can also register on my website without ever speaking with me.
In addition, I can make your friends/family/colleagues aware of other discounts coming up that they can add to this so that they can really save some money.
I am so happy that we have such an amazing group of host families in Laurel and surroundings and I really enjoy working with you! I'd love help in finding other families across the country who could be a great fit with the au pair program and no one knows what that takes to be successful better than you!
A very special THANK YOU to Manuela’s host-family who referred a new family to Cultural Care through me!
I have your $100.- BONUS (in addition to the $250.- from CCAP) ready for you ☺
If you are interested in the household handbook, please reach out and I will email you a copy☺
Cultural Care sends out surveys to all host families and au pairs several times a year.
These surveys are helping us to help and serve you better.
I would truly appreciate filling out the surveys and submitting them.
Besides being helpful, I want to make sure that I personally provide the best support possibly to all my au pairs and host families.
I do take pride in having a happy group☺
Thank you very much!
