This busy Dairy Farming family of 4 who live in south-east of Ashburton is looking for an energetic and motivated au pair who is willing to give their 100% to the children. They are expecting a 5th family member in July. In addition to that, they have 600 cows, 2 dogs and one cat! They love the outdoors, good food, and spending valuable time with their family and friends.

Their eldest daughter (3) is currently attending pre-school. She is extremely outgoing and an independent girl that knows what she wants. She is at her happiest especially when she is on the farm with dad. Their son (1) is an adventurous and happy boy who loves his big sister. He tries to follow her everywhere she goes. He shows an interest in learning new things and likes to figure things out. Both love going to the beach, playing in the sand, boat riding on a lake, the playground, and grocery shoppings!

The typical duties include child-related house work, meal preparation, cleaning, teaching and playing with the children. If you wish, you can assist in the farm work and learn about their farming life. This family wish to provide their children some insight to different cultures. It will be great if you can teach them your language through fun activities!

The closest town from their place is a 15 min drive to Geraldine. Ashburton and Geraldine have a lot to offer and all just within an hour drive! There are native walks, Mt Hutt ski field, lakes, beaches, shopping malls, cafes and restaurants.
