AIFS: IT'S NOT TOO EARLY TO THINK BACK-TO-SCHOOL WHEN IT COMES TO ARRANGING CHILD CARE

 AIFS: IT'S NOT TOO EARLY TO THINK BACK-TO-SCHOOL
 WHEN IT COMES TO ARRANGING CHILD CARE
 GREENWICH, Conn., June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Parents needing live-in child care for the coming school year can apply through a U.S. government-designed "au pair" program sponsored by the American Institute For Foreign Study Scholarship of Greenwich. Families should apply by July 31 so they can be matched with au pairs by September.
 Au Pair in America expects to place more than 2,800 au pairs with families in 150 communities in 40 states this year. Carefully screened abroad, these au pairs come to the U.S. on J-1 Exchange Visitor visas for a year of cultural exchange. Since 1986, more than 13,000 AIFS au pairs have been placed with American families.
 Host families pay approximately $175 a week which includes the au pair's transatlantic transportation, medical insurance, a four-day orientation and the services of a local community counselor. Au pairs drive children to and from activities, feed, bathe, play with the children and do children's laundry while they provide up to 45 hours a week child care.
 In return the au pairs get pocket money and the benefit of a year's cultural exchange in the U.S. Not only do the au pairs benefit from their year here, children get a valuable introduction to another culture.
 Families interested in hosting an au pair should call (800) 727-2437 or write Dept. BTS, 102 Greenwich Avenue, Greenwich, Conn., 06830.
