Trip overview

Embrace your passion for travel and children and experience a new life overseas on our Au Pair in China trip. Become part of a Chinese household and help care for the children of a local, loving family whilst you form a close bond with the host parents. Spend your days uncovering the beauty of Asia’s largest country, feasting on fiery hot pots, exploring the ancient history and playing Chinese chess in the national parks.

We offer the complete package for those wanting to kickstart their au pair journey and, most importantly, ensure you are matched with a safe and welcoming host family and home. Our team will get you sorted with all the essentials from visa assistance, to finding an approved host family before you go, bank account advice, accommodation nights to use when you please and 24/7 support plus more. So you’ll be more than ready to begin your exciting au pair adventure down under. Plus, regularly chat with your host family prior to taking off, so you’ll know all about them before you meet them face-to-face!

Completely immerse yourself in a new culture, make lifelong friends and, best of all, break away from your usual routine back home as you embark on an adventure to au pair in China. With the freedom to explore the country’s natural beauty in your time off or paid trips with your host family, this experience is perfect for a first-time traveller or someone ready to experience a genuine, local Chinese lifestyle.

Trip itinerary

The beauty of this trip is that your days will generally be filled with au pair duties, and then you’ll get time off and breaks in between to explore however you please! As a rough idea, here’s what you can expect:

Week 1

It’s finally here - the first official week of your new life in China! Once you’ve touched down, your host family will meet you at the closest major airport and take you to your new home! If you’re planning on travelling first, a driver will take you to your initial hostel accommodation instead. Spend your first week getting to know the family, setting up your bedroom and navigating around your new neighbourhood!

If you're located in Shenzhen, you'll attend a half-day orientation, where you’ll get to meet other au pairs and learn about China’s intriguing history and culture. Plus, you’ll hear more about your role as an au pair and nanny. If your host family is located outside of Shenzhen, you'll complete your orientation online before you arrive.
