As an au pair, you will work hard to provide top quality childcare and tutoring, so naturally you will need sufficient breaks.

ResponsibilitiesWhat Do Au Pairs Do?
As an au pair you will be responsible for the safety and education of children in your care. This is an especially rewarding responsibility as you will create special bonds with these children. Au pairs have a unique position in the family as both a family member and employee. As an au pair, you will perform tasks such as :
Playing and supervising children
Helping with homework and tutoring
Preparing meals for children and cleaning up afterwards
Helping with bath time
Doing children's laundry
Keeping kids' rooms tidy and organized
Other child-related duties requested by your host family
You are not expected to do heavy housework, yard work, pet care, laundry, or meals for the entire family. Also, many host families in China already have a full time house worker, so your responsibilities may vary. Most families are primarily interested in having their children interact with someone who is a native English speaker.
