This family of 4 would love to welcome an au pair into their family. They have a dog, a cat and some tropical fish. Their weekends and family time are high priority to them.

Their oldest child (4) loves outdoor activities and loves to learn new things. He is interested in insects, any transport and machinery. He is also strong willed, very loving and also sensitive. Their youngest child (1.5) is always happy and is an incredibly easy-going little girl.

This family is looking for an au pair who is easy-going, has patience and can help the children learn through play. Someone who is happy to share their culture, other skills they may have and be a role model to the children. Your duties will include child-related work, teaching through play/stories/games etc., preparing meals, dropping off and picking up their son and light household chores.

This family lives in a lovely sub-division in Templeton called "Claremont Estate", which is approximately 20km from City Centre.  The neighbours are very friendly and it is safe to walk around the subdivision with the kids. They are in the middle of Rolleston and Hornby, which you can easily find supermarkets, cafes, shopping malls and other facilities. They will be very happy to help you explore, show and recommend good things to do and see in New Zealand. Christchurch is called the Garden City because it is very flat, has hills, beaches and rivers close by. If you love skiing, there is a ski field just an hour away! You’ll never get bored during your stay and also, you’ll meet new friends and be part of a great community. This family is looking forward to building a great relationship with you and you’ll be treated as part of the family!

Ideally, you’ll have nanny, babysitting, teaching or coaching experiences or similar to join this family.

If this family sounds like the family you would love to be part of, apply today!
