Ages 18-29 years Become Au Pair in China      


The term “Au Pair” comes from the French "on a par" or "equal to", indicating that the relationship is one of equals. An Au Pair in China will be able to experience China to the fullest by living with a Chinese Host Family (or a foreign family that lives in China). An Au Pair will provide educational assistance such as language tutoring, childcare, and carry out some light household duties. During this experience, Au Pairs will also have the chance to explore the unique aspects of Chinese culture by attending Mandarin classes, culture courses, Au Pair Club activities, and much more.
