What is Au Pair?
An au pair is a domestic assistant from a foreign country working for, and living as part of, a host family.
The title comes from the French term au pair, meaning “at par” or “equal to”, indicating that the relationship is intended to be one of equals: the au pair is intended to become a member of the family, albeit a temporary one, rather than a traditional domestic worked. The concept of the au pair originated in Europe after World War II. Before the war, an abundant supply of domestic servants had been available to look after the children of middle and upper-class families, but changes in social attitudes, and increases in wages and taxes after the war, made the old system inaccessible to most middle class parents. At the same time, social change increased the number of middle class girls who needed to earn their own living, and rising educational aspirations for girls made experiencing foreign cultures and learning foreign languages more common aspirations. Au pairs can be expected to do a combination of child care and light housework duties. They are not responsible for housework that does not relate to the children’s or communal living areas that are kept tidy by all family members. An au pair’s primary duties are taking care of the children and entertaining them, as well as teaching the native tongue if this is required.
An au pair’s duties may include:
- waking up the children
- taking/picking up children to/from school
- helping with school homework
- playing with the children
- taking the children on outings to parks, playgroups and other activities
- preparing light meals for children and clean up after the meals
- doing the children’s laundry and ironing their clothes
- making the children’s beds
- cleaning the children’s bathroom
- cleaning the children’s room
