About Us

Connect China Au Pair belongs to the group Connect China Co.Ltd. It was founded in 2015. The intention of Connect China Au Pair is to promote the cultural and language exchange between young foreign professionals and Chinese families.

The term au pair comes from France and means "at par" or "equal to", that indicates that rather than being a domestic worker, the au pair is supposed to be treated as a member of the family. Mostly common in Europe and North America, the au pair comes from a foreign country to work for, and living as part of the host family. The au pair should take some part of the childcare and housework responsibilities. Normally ageing from 18-26 years old, these young professionals seek for a cultural exchange of 6 or 12 months rather than long-term career in childcare. As well as all the costs being paid while living in the host family, the au pairs also receive a monetary allowance for personal use. Unlike other countries, in China the au pair focuses on English language teaching.

The Au Pair in China needs to focus on developing the kid's English language skills through tutoring, activities, conversation and games. The Au Pair might need to do some light housework. You will need to clean your own bedroom and keep the house tidy while taking care of the kid. The kid will probably see you as an older brother/sister so it is important you act like one.
