Au Pair Training with EduBabe

Everyone has a dream to travel the world and see new places: Au pairing not only offers you the chance to fulfil this dream but it also allows you to become part of a new family and a new culture for a year.

Instead of being just a tourist, you will become Italian, French, Dutch, German or American for a year. The families also view this experience as a way for them to "travel" without going anywhere.

Being an au pair is not about working for a family but being involved in an exchange program-an exchange of cultures, languages and friendship. You will also be able to study either a language or a course of your choice! Au pairing is a safe and secure way of exploring a foreign country-especially if you have never travelled before. Our course prepares you for this experience and details what to expect and what you should know in order to be a competent Au Pair.

Their is also a demand for well trained Au Pairs in South Africa so you don't only have to consider living overseas. Many returning Au Pairs are snapped up in the local market.

What does an au pair do

You will be like a big sister to the family's children. Your main responsibilities will be toward the children; getting them dressed in the morning, taking them to school, helping them with their homework, entertaining them and getting them ready for bed. Most families want an English-speaking au pair so that their child can learn some English from you while you learn their language.In addition to your work with the children you must be prepared to help with light daily household duties, such as tidying up the kitchen, doing the children's washing and ironing, vacuuming and dusting.
