Candidates are selected based on their maturity, independence, adaptability, and, most importantly, for their sincere interest in and affection towards children.

BASIC AU PAIR QUALIFICATION CRITERIA:

  • Between the ages of 18-26

CHI AU PAIR GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND THE BASIC REQUIREMENTS

The majority of our au pairs have over 500 hours of childcare experience and often have professional experience as teachers or nurses in their home country. Our au pairs are capable, skilled and ready for this amazing experience.

CHI Au Pair maintains a strict and thorough screening and admissions procedure based on program visa requirements. Both the au pair and host family benefit from this detailed process and can feel confident that they are entering a program that exceeds the regulatory standards.

AU PAIR RESPONSIBILITIES

CHI au pairs provide up to 45 hours per week of childcare. The Au Pair’s schedule is flexible, and is set by the host family. Your Au Pair can work evenings, weekends or split shifts as long as their childcare duties take up no more than 5 ½ days a week and no more than 10 hours per day.

All au pair tasks should be focused specifically on the children – no heavy housework is permitted. Typical daily tasks can include:

  • Waking the children, dressing infants and toddlers, bathing and playing games with them
  • Preparing meals for the children, tidying their belongings, making their beds and doing their laundry
  • Driving the children to or from school, appointments and activities
  • Caring for and watching the children while they are asleep, if the parents are not at home
  • Sharing a part of their home country with the children through games, storytelling, cooking, language and love
