Local childcare consultant responsibilities
As a local childcare consultant (LCC), you represent the program in your community and support both host families and au pairs during their year together. As an LCC, you will provide year-round support, screen and interview host families, oversee U.S. Department of State compliance and market to new families in your community.
The number of hours you dedicate to the LCC role each month will depend both on the number of host families and au pairs you service as well as the time you choose to dedicate to your sales and marketing efforts. Some LCCs have other careers and work with Cultural Care as part-time contractors, and others dedicate their full time to the LCC role. The money you earn depends largely on how much time and effort you have to devote to the position.
1. Provide year-round support
You will be the primary source of support for your host families and au pairs during their year together. LCCs provide year-round support by:
The support you provide for host families and au pairs will be critical to helping them enjoy the best year possible together! For more insight as to how local childcare consultants support their au pairs and host families during the year, watch Au Pair Answer Mom's video.
2. Screen and interview host families
Just as au pair candidates must be carefully screened before they are accepted onto our program, host families must also be screened and interviewed. As a local childcare consultant, you will be responsible for conducting an interview in the host family's home and check their personal and professional references.
3. Oversee U.S. Department of State compliance
Cultural Care Au Pair is designated by the U.S. Department of State as one of 13 authorized au pair program sponsors.. As an LCC, you will be responsible for acting in accordance with U.S. Department of State regulations and helping our host families and au pairs to do the same. You will maintain documentation of your fulfilled compliance responsibilities throughout the year.
4. Market to new families in your community and nationwide
As an LCC, you will market in your community and beyond using grassroots efforts and networking skills. Although there are many ways host families discover our program, local childcare consultants play a vital role in successfully educating families about Cultural Care Au Pair by following up with families in their community who have inquired about the program. To market to new families you might do any or all of the following:
By educating new families about our program and working with them until they apply and welcome au pairs, you have the potential to earn commissions through sales and marketing bonuses!
