As an au pair in Chile, you have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the Latin American culture by living with a family and to become part of society yourself. You take care of your host family’s children and help with the daily household. In return you will receive a single room in the family home, full board and monthly pocket money. The children are often raised bilingually, which is why foreign languages play a major role.
We have a large network of families in Chile who are looking for foreign help for childcare. The families are spread across the country, but most live in the greater Santiago de Chile area. We select all families individually.
Your tasks can include, for example:
- Bringing children to school or kindergarten
- Play, sing, do handicrafts, etc. with the children
- Help with homework
- Take the kids for a walk or go to the playground
- Supervising, dressing and washing the children
- Accompany children to sports and leisure activities
- Help with kitchen work, tidying up and cleaning
- Prepare meals for the children
Important: As an au pair, you are not a service worker or cleaning lady. For example, it is not your job to clean the whole house or cook for the whole family.
Be fond of children, reliable, a high sense of responsibility, flexible, proactive, willingness to help
Experience as an au pair or in childcare is an advantage, but not mandatory
good knowledge of Spanish (B1-B2) and / or good knowledge of English and / or German

Combine an au-pair job with work and travel, volunteering or internship

Our programs can be combined with one another as needed. The best thing is, if you combine several programs in Chile, you will receive the following discounts on the program costs.
Accommodation and Meals
You live directly in your host family’s house in your own single room. Thus you are part of the family and take part directly in family life. In addition, of course, you get full board and monthly pocket money. This gives you the opportunity to get to know and travel to Chile even better in your free time or after your au pair stay.
The families are spread all over Chile, but most live in the greater Santiago de Chile area. All of our families are individually selected, regularly visited and evaluated.
They can be purely Chilean families, binational or foreign families. Most families do not live directly in the city center, but in suburbs, where the children can play away from the noise and traffic. Many families have large houses with gardens and swimming pools.
Families vary in size, from one to four children. The age of the children is usually between 0 and 14 years.
