Details on Hosting a Chinese Au Pair

  • The majority of our Chinese au pair applicants have experience working in nurseries or kindergarten classrooms and are very interested in becoming teachers after their au pair experience. Most Chinese au pairs have a university degree or a master degree. They are very focused on education as well as living healthy. A Chinese au pair will make sure the children have a healthy lifestyle and are learning new things every day.
  • Chinese au pairs are very interested in learning about U.S. culture and enjoy sharing their own. They are usually a bit quiet at first but as soon as they get to know the family better, they open their heart and become a wonderful addition to the family!
  • It is not common for Chinese au pairs to drive before coming to the U.S. Driving in China is quite different than driving in the U.S. Chinese au pairs are willing to learn how to drive in the U.S. and can take driving lesson, but it may take a while before they are comfortable behind the wheel. If the host family needs an au pair that can drive, with time and patience your Chinese au pair can adjust to driving in the U.S. Chinese au pairs also don’t mind to riding a bike or using public transportation.
  • China is considered a collectivist culture. This means  that the Chinese place more importance on the group than the individual. When making a decision, someone from China is taught to do what is best  for the group they belong to. These groups can be families, school groups, friendship connections or work groups. Young people are accustomed to collaborating with the family and will help with cooking and cleaning.
  • Intra-group harmony is important for the Chinese. This means that the Chinese prefer to avoid conflict. They also respect the importance of not “losing face” so they will go out of their way to not embarrass someone and they expect the same from others. Chinese usually discipline their children telling them what they did was wrong, and leaving them alone to think, and correct their behavior.
  • Confucian values including respect for elders is still strong in Chinese culture. Youth are taught to respect their elders and even young children are expected to defer to older children. Confucian principles also include the importance of family and many Chinese au pairs come from close-knit families. Chinese au pairs truly want to be involved in daily family activities.
