Wanderlust Exchange’s Au Pair in China Program provides students and young professionals with opportunities that integrate travel, education, Mandarin language learning, childcare, and English tutoring. This program is a great opportunity for overseas young adults to experience China and the Chinese culture by staying with a host family as well.
By offering 30 hours of live-in childcare and English teaching per week, you have an opportunity to explore Chinese culture through weekly Mandarin classes, culture immersion activities held by Wanderlust and your day-to-day colourful life with your host family.
To meet participants’ preferences in authentic Chinese local culture, apart from our primary location-Shanghai, we also offer host family in various cities, including Beijing, Chongqing, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Suzhou and Ningbo.
Duration of Au pair program varies from 3 to 6 months.
In terms of fees, there is NO application fees but applicants will need to pay a $100 USD program down payment, which is only required once applicant is approved for the program (matched with a host family) and will be completely returned to Au Pairs upon completion of the program.
There is at least one family member who can speak reasonable English.
Families are also required to give their au pair 1.5 days off /week, give au pair 3 days off as paid holiday if an au pair stays for a 3-months stay, 4 days for 4-month stay and so on.
Here are instructions helping start off your cultural journey in China.
We offer scholarship upon their completion of the program depending on the length of stay (Tuition reimbursement for 6 months program).
The scholarship goes towards their TEFL/TESOL course tuition.
Au pairing is a great way to explore the world, to see the differences of countries, cultures and people living in those contexts and, on top of that, to practice giving back with your skills in meaningful ways. The once in a lifetime cross-cultural adventure is here to begin.
