Au Pair salary China
Each Au Pair country has its standards that Au Pairs and a Host Families need to meet. In this post, you will find the key information about the Au Pair program in China
 

Working hours

Although the working hours might vary depending on the Host Family, Au Pairs in China work a maximum of 30 hours a week as a rule. Babysitting also counts as part of these working hours, thus it is important to discuss these details before the stay begins. 
 
Don’t forget that the schedule should reserve some time to attend a Chinese language course, as it’s one of the requirements of the program.

Salary

As a rule, Au Pairs receive a sum of pocket money on a monthly basis. The salary varies between 700 and 2000 yuan per month.
 
If the participant happens to work any extra hours, they need to discuss with the family whether they will prefer paying for the extra-hours or adding them as the holidays/free time in the future.

Time off and holidays

The participant will get 12 days vacation during a one year stay and they need to inform the family at least one week in advance before taking it. In addition to this official vacation, the participant will also get days off on all public holidays. 
 
During the stay, the Host Family might also travel somewhere and might offer the Au Pair to join them. To avoid misunderstandings, we suggest to discuss if this time will be considered as work or holidays for the Au Pair. 
 

Language course

Mandarin is the most spoken mother tongue on Earth with a total of 1.1 billion speakers. A Chinese language course is one of the requirements of the program. Both the Au Pair and the Host family need to discuss the daily/weekly schedule of the activities, so the participant can plan out time to attend the language course. 
 
As a rule, the Host Family needs to cover all the fees in advance. If the Au Pair would like to change the course later, he/she might have to cover the additional expenses.
