Sponsor Spotlight: Cultural Care Au Pair & Rita Berson

I’m a Local Childcare Consultant. I provide year-round support to host families and au pairs, and also talk to families considering the program to help them determine if Cultural Care Au Pair is the right childcare solution for them.

As this host family in New Jersey shares, an au pair can be more of a caregiver to your kids: they can be lifelong friends. 💞

“We cannot speak more highly about our experience with Cultural Care. We matched with an amazing au pair who has quickly become a part of our family and a best friend to our two girls.”

Host family from NJ
If you’re looking for more information about this childcare option, set up time to chat with me:

If you or one of your referrals welcomes an au pair, I will donate $50 to the Independence Youth Cycling Foundation.

Thank you for your continued support and participation in Independence Youth Cycling activities! Let’s keep pedaling forward together.

Ride Strong,
The IYC Team
