BEING AU PAIR IN FRANCE
Would you like to know France, its history and its culture ?
Do you like children?
THE PAIR PROGRAM IN FRANCE IS MADE FOR YOU !
The program offers the opportunity to improve your level of French by living with a host family and taking care of their children. This program is very much framed by European law.
The au pair is considered a member of the family. He / she will have their own bedroom, and will share the family meals and enjoy all the comforts of home. The au pair can share the bathroom with the children.
WHERE ARE THE FAMILIES ?
Families can be located in any region of France.
The activities of an au pair are directly linked to the care of children 25 hours a week. Among the activities that the au pair will have to perform :
- Accompany and pick up the children from school,
- Help them with their homework,
- Play with them,
- Prepare food,
- Clean their rooms and keep their clothes clean,
In France, it is common for the mother to take care of the house and as a “member” of the family, she can ask the au pair to do some household chores to keep the house clean and tidy.
Your remuneration is in the form of pocket money. Your work with your host family is not a salaried job but rather considered as a caregiver. In exchange, you will be fed, housed and will receive pocket money the amount of which will be between 80-90 €
- You can, if you wish, take language courses.
- 1 and a half day of rest per week and 1 week every 6 months.
Need a visa ?
Each au pair can contact us or our partner agency during their entire stay.
In case of problem
If there are any problems between the host family and the au pair candidate, we will try to understand what is going on. If no solution is found, we will suggest another family (if there has been no serious violation of the program rules because otherwise, it will be expulsion from the program).
