What is the role of an Au Pair in America?

As an au pair, the primary responsibility will be to take care of the children of an American family. You will live in the family home, accompany the children to school, and transport to after-school activities. Other tasks will also include preparation of the children’s meals, playing with them, putting them to bed etc.  Light household chores may also be required as it relates to the childcare such as some cleaning and laundry. During the weekends you will usually have free time; although families may request help sometimes. Going on holidays and fun trips with your family may also be a possibility  The average work week will be up to 45 hours with a flexible schedule likely. The host family will also look forward to you introducing your language and culture to them!
