New Au Pair Weekend Courses in Las Vegas in Addition to Silver Bay, NY

The Silver Bay Au Pair Weekend is branching out to now offer weekend classes in Las Vegas.  Classes are currently scheduled for two weekends in 2018.  Here is the information you need to plan accordingly:

COURSE MISSION STATEMENT:

Since 1996 our experienced instructors have been committed to quality instruction that provide academic value to our students.  Our courses focus on three types of classes:

  1.  Child Development
  2. Personal Development and Learning
  3. Transition to American Culture

 

DATES:  Feb 23 – 25, 2018 and March 23 – 25, 2018 

 

WHERE: The course will be held at the Conference Center at La Quinta 3970 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, NV 89169.

 

TOUR OR COURSE:  These intensive weekend courses focus on academic enrichment and are not a tour of the area.  Students may decide to arrive early or stay later or use the evenings to tour on their own.

 

SLEEPING ROOMS:  Rooms are double occupancy with two double beds and bathroom.  There is potential of a few rooms for 3 or 4 students who want to be together and who are willing to share beds.

 

ARRIVING EARLY OR STAYING LATER:  Students who want to arrive a few days early or stay a few days later can take advantage of a discounted group rate at the conference center.  Further information about this option will be available later.  Our estimate is that Thursday night will cost $108 per room and Sunday night $95 per room plus tax. Confirmations will include who to contact at the hotel and you would pay the hotel directly for any additional nights.

 

MEALS INCLUDED:  Snacks on Friday evening, breakfast and lunch Saturday and breakfast Sunday

 

ESTIMATED NUMBERS:  For the Las Vegas course we anticipate 45-80 students.  There will be four instructors.
