What is expected from an Au Pair?
An Au Pair should be willing to share with the host family, especially the children, what life is like in his/her country. Even teaching the children a bit of the language is encouraged. Children typically respond well to this type of interaction, and it helps them to understand how the world is different in different places.
Child care is defined by the parents and may include diaper changing, bathing, dressing, and transportation to and from school, feeding, playing, and general interaction.
Light housework. This means that the Au Pair keeps her/his personal space neat and tidy, does her/his own laundry, shares the duty of laundry with the host family (as reasonable), and shares with the host family the job of keeping the area used by the children neat and tidy, as well as her/his own space.
What are NOT an Au Pair task?
