What do Au Pairs do? Au Pairs take care of the children and tutor them in English during scheduled hours. These scheduled hours are agreed upon between the au pair and host family in advance. Au Pairs help the children with their homework and assist in keeping children’s rooms and play areas clean. They prepare snacks and meals for the children, and drop them off or pick them up from school or activities.
Your host family is screened carefully. In addition, you have the ultimate safety net … local coordinators and full time staff in-country you can call on anytime. All of this to ensure you have a safe, comfortable environment and that your host family is a suitable host. Receive a clear set of guidelines and expectations that are set with your host family. Through monthly meet ups, make new friends during your time as an au pair.
Some countries require you to take language courses to work legally. Au Pairs receive a private room to call their own plus all of your meals. Au Pairs also receive a weekly or monthly stipend and agreed upon days off.
