Au pair in Chile

Not Available

Chile has so much to offer for travellers, be it the driest desert on earth in the far north of the country, endless beaches and lush national parks in the central region or perpetual ice and trees over 1000 years old in Patagonia, in the south of Chile. The capital city, Santiago de Chile, has developed over recent years into a real Latin American hotspot with a population of nearly 7 million. The vast inner-city parks, colonial architecture, numerous museums, award-winning vineyards and buzzing nightlife add to the sheer boundless versatility of this thriving metropolis.

Do you love kids and enjoy working with them? Do you want to combine working and travelling overseas in a fascinating country? Then our Au Pair Program in Chile is exactly what you’re looking for.

JCR’s Au Pair Program gives you the chance to live with a family and experience the Chilean way of life first-hand as if you’re an active part of society.

Just leave your regular life behind for a while and try something new. You’ll be able to develop your self-confidence and become more independent while meeting friends for life and having unforgettable experiences.

What’s more, the pocket money you earn will enable you to save up a little that can help you explore Chile in your time off or at the end of the Au Pair Program.

Does that sound like you? You can’t wait to become an Au Pair in Chile? Then go ahead.

“In order to summarize my experience as an Au-Pair: Nayeli is my little sister now and no blood can change that. When she cuddles with me in the evenings and says, “I love you big sister”, then I know I made the right decision by coming to Chile. My year spent in Chile was an unforgettable experience, and despite its ups and downs, I would not want to change it for the world”
