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.

Au-pair Familie

Host Family

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.
