Attendance Policy

Our weekends are a fun but intensive educational experience! It is critical that you arrive for classes and activities on time and stay for the entire period. All class time is mandatory. If you do not attend all class and activity hours you will not be eligible to receive your course completion letter. Mandatory attendance begins on the first day of class at check-in and ends after the last hour of class on the last day. Travel and work schedule conflicts will not be excused, so please make other arrangements in advance. We understand that sometimes emergencies arise or flights are delayed. In situations like these, you will need to work with your program coordinator to see if it is possible for you to still earn the necessary amount of hours.

Cancellation Policy: In-Person Courses

Switching Weekends

  • If you would like to switch to a different weekend course, up to three weeks before the weekend, the administrative fee is $25.
  • If you would like to switch to a different weekend course, within 3-1 weeks before the weekend, the administrative fee is $100 and any additional charges incurred by APW.

You will receive a voucher that you will use to register for the new course. Voucher codes are transferable and can be used toward any Au Pair Weekend course registration within 6 months of the issue date.
Requesting a Refund
  • If you would like to cancel your current weekend course, up to three weeks before the weekend, the administrative fee is $50.
  • Refunds are not available if requesting to cancel within three weeks of the weekend.

To request a switch to a different weekend or refund, please e-mail info@aupairclasses.org with the following information:
  • Student First and Last Name
  • Course name and dates
  • Reason for dropping
  • Host family's name and email address
  • Your permission to allow Au Pair Weekend to drop the course on your behalf

Cancellation Policies: Online & Virtual Courses

Refunds for online courses can be requested, minus a $50 administrative fee, up to one week after registering. If you need to cancel 1-3 weeks after registering, we can provide you with a voucher minus a $25 fee to use for a future course within the next six months. This voucher is transferable to another au pair if you are unable to use it. Students will not receive Completion Letters for partial hours. Please note when registering for two courses: If you register for two 36 hour courses at our discounted pricing of $500, and one class is later canceled, the discounted course price of $205 is what will be eligible for a refund regardless of which course is being cancelled. Students are not eligible to later add a second course at the discounted price of $205. Students must register for both courses at the same time and they must keep both courses in order to receive the discounted rate of $500 for two online course offerings.

COVID-19 Policy

Au Pair Weekend is closely monitoring the ongoing developments of COVID-19 in all of our city locations. We continue to follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as guidelines from state and local health departments to ensure the safety of our students and staff. Due to the quickly evolving situation and different policies state to state and at each of our partner schools, please contact us for details on a specific city's current COVID-19 Policy.

  • All students and staff must show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test from within 72 hours of the course start date.
  • Bring a facial cover/ mask and be prepared to wear it depending on current state and partner school policies.
  • Our weekends will always be mask friendly and social distancing is encouraged when possible. If it is not required, students may choose to wear a mask in any setting and we ask that any personal decision be met with respect and compassion by fellow classmates.
  • Please take care of yourself and stay mindful of the symptoms of COVID-19. If you happen to test positive for COVID-19, have been exposed to COVID-19, or have other respiratory-illness-related symptoms within 2 weeks of the course start date, please notify our staff right away. You will be eligible to switch to a later course, or to switch to a fully online course, and all switch fees will be waived.

Students who risk the safety of their fellow classmates and fail to comply with the CDC, Au Pair Weekend, and our partner school’s Covid-19 Policies will be asked to leave the program and will not be eligible for a refund.
