What will be the Au pair’s duties and responsibilities?
The Au pair will help and assist you for anything between 20 and 35 hours per week. Her duties will be primarily childcare related duties but she would also help you with light housework. The emphasis is on light. Whatever you would ask your adult daughter to help you with is what you can ask your Au pair as well. Remember: this is a cultural exchange programme and the Au pair is not here as a chef, gardener or cleaner. If possible, the Au pair should be provided with a schedule and timetable which should be agreed between Au pair and host family at the start of the Au pair’s stay.
