Hello, I am about to be a first time mom and was wondering if anyone could recommend any good daycares or in-home daycares around McKinney. The idea of leaving my newborn terrifies me. Any advice would be great!

What can I do next?

Hi B.! First of all....congratulations!

I understand what are you going through. I have two of my own and I could not go back to work :)

Have you though about sponsoring an au pair?

Au pairs are foreign exchange students, young women (and men), ages 18-26 primarily from Europe & Latin America, that want to spend a year or more with an American family. They are fluent in English as well as their native

In exchange for a private room, board, a weekly stipend and an annual educational allowance they'll provide up to 45 hours of childcare(and related childcare duties) as a live-in nanny. They are in the USA on legal visas and can also travel domestically or abroad with minimal paperwork. They
are required to attend monthly au pair meetings, and obtain 6 hours of credit from an accredited school/college annually. They are screened, medically insured and experienced.

Here is just a short list of what our Au Pairs can do:
* Quality Coverage for up to 45 hours per week (you set the schedule!)
* Weekends/Nights are Possible
* Au Pairs handle Children's meals, laundry and clean up
* Children are exposed to new language and culture
* Most Au Pairs drive (so children's activities, school, etc. are easier to
* They live-in -- so snow days / sick days are not a problem!
* Continuous local support for your local counselor
* Our Agency handles visas, flights, etc.
* Au Pairs usually stay one year -- but new rules allow them to choose an extra
* Our Au Pair Program is regulated by the U.S. Dept. of State

All Au Pairs:
*Participate in a careful screening process
*Are qualified 18 to 26 years old
*Are proficient in English
*Participate in an orientation and training program
*Enjoy children and have previous experience
*Express a sincere interest in living with an American family for a year
*Have successfully completed their country's secondary education.
*The entire program is overseen by the U.S. Dept. of State!!

We offer both a full year program and a summer Au Pair program. Host Families on the full year program have the option to extend their au pair's stay longer if needed.

Can they drive? Do we need to provide a car?
Drivers are a frequent request and they're certainly available. However, there is no need to provide a dedicated vehicle. Having access to a car for
their duties is convenient for many households that don't have mass transit options nearby. If you're located in an urban area with public transport then a non-driving au pair could work as well.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions!
