I think it is a good move for the University.

As a former player (I guess that is what you would call me even though she rarely treated us like human beings) I think time is running out on Ms. Bria and soon everyone will realize she sugar-coat is only that - a coat. Underneath, its pretty sour and doesn't have alot of b-ball knowledge

Additional payment and rewards:
Additional benefits vary, some families take au pairs on holidays to exotic destinations to luxury hotels but it is best not to expect this! Most host families are generous and want you to be happy. Many will make the effort to show you their city and their area and take you on excursions and family trips. Some will contribute towards local travel expenses or phone bills. There are also families who are prepared to pay for or contribute towards the cost of language lessons.
It is very important to agree in advance what you expect from each other on the basic hours and pay. Extras are a bonus!
*Mother's helpers, tutors and professional nannies from Australia are also part of our cultural exchange program. They are candidates who are willing and able to take on higher levels of responsibility, a Mother’s help or tutor does not need to be fully qualified, nannies can only be placed in a professional nanny position if they are fully qualified and can provide proof of qualification and experience.
NOTE TO ALL AU PAIRS – During the (summer) holidays (July & August!) you may be asked to do extra hours. Holiday pocket money should reflect the extra hours. Many language schools are CLOSED during July/August.
For many cultural au pair positions a real affection for children is the main requirement. Practical experience is an advantage, even if it is only babysitting, as is an outgoing nature for coping and living with new people in a foreign country. You should also be flexible, independent, honest, mature and responsible.
Candidates with extensive experience in childcare and/or a qualification in childcare or teaching are very popular. We work with dedicated nanny agencies to secure you a role as a professional nanny.
If you have a background in education or you have been nanny before, we can often find you a position very quickly. In particular in Britain, families are prepared to pay more for experienced candidates, especially if you are willing to look after younger children.(no sole care for under 2s unless you have a nanny qualification)
Additional advantages - please make sure you highlight your skills in your letter to the family, the following 'extra skills' are highly in demand with families:
• Talents/sports that you can share with the children (such as swimming or painting)
• Experience/qualification in food hygiene and cooking
•(International) driving license
• Understanding of first aid
If you have more childcare experience, you may consider being a mother's help. Expect to be asked specific questions about your experience during your interview.
Tasks will vary by family, but expect the following to be part of your duties in most families.
• Wake the children in the morning and get them ready
• Help the children to tidy their rooms and make their beds
• Prepare breakfast and lunch for the children
• Clean up breakfast dishes
• Make sure children have books and homework for school, drive children to/from school (if needed)
• Tasks while children are at school: shopping, light housework
• Prepare a healthy afternoon snack
• Assist the children with their homework, initiate and supervise play
• Help the children with their bath routine and help get them ready for bed
Host families describe their requirements on the profile and they are able to prepare a handbook, that Smart Au Pairs provides them. It helps to define the job so that expectations are clear.

HOW ABOUT FREE TIME?
An au pair should have 2 days and most evenings free. New friends are usually quickly made through language classes and children’s activities. In the first weeks, you can ask the host family to help find other au pairs in the area. Local agencies also provide a contact list.
HOW TO GET THERE?
Cultural au pairs are expected to pay for their own travel to the host country (nearest airport to host family). The host family will pick you up from the airport or arrange for collection. In the Netherlands and Germany we have a 'flight refund bonus' so that you get your flight costs refunded after successful completion of the au pair program.
