What Do Au Pairs Do?

As an Au pair, you have a unique position in the family as both a family member and employee. You will be responsible for taking care of children for the host family as a big brother or sister. Your job will be especially rewarding and fulfilling as you creating special bonds with your host children. Let's take a look what's the responsibilities of an au pair:

  • Playing and supervising children

  • Helping with homework and tutoring

  • Preparing meals for children and cleaning up afterwards

  • Helping with bath time

  • Doing children's laundry

  • Keeping kids' rooms tidy and organized

  • Other child-related duties requested by your host family

As an aupair, you are not expected to do heavy housework, yard work, pet care, laundry, or meals for the entire family. Also, many host families in China already have a full time house worker, so your responsibilities will be generally concentrated on playing and supervising children and helping with homework or homeschooling.

 

Working Hours and Schedule

As an au pair, you will work hard to provide quality childcare and tutoring, so naturally you will need sufficient breaks.

  • You are scheduled to work no more than 30 hours per week

  • You are not working more than 10 hours on any given day
