Favourable working conditionsSwitzerland offers one of the best Au pair program in Europe. Au Pair work conditions are clear and controlled by the local authorities. An Au pair should work 30 hours a week to look after the children and help with light household duties. An Au pair receives free room & board. The net salary (pocket money) is equivalent to about $200 per week. The family pays 100% of the language school and you are entitled to 4 weeks of paid vacation per year (5 weeks if you are below the age of 20). The family must subscribe to a health insurance with accident coverage on your behalf. Depending on the family you select, you may also travel with the family and/or go skiing in the mountains each winter.
