Au Pair- Waiouru

Payment: Accommodation & Paid ($100-$150 for 2- 3 part days)
Location: Waiouru
Region: Manawatu/Wanganui
Experience: Limited Experience Necessary

 

Love the outdoors? So do we! We are a fun, easy going family of four, who live in the central North island of New Zealand. We are looking for a reliable and friendly Au pair to join our family for a minimum 3 month period from middle of August.

Waiouru, the town we live in has a lake nearby and a mountain; perfect for hiking and mountain biking during the summer and skiing and snowboarding during the winter. Plus we are central to most cities and towns in the north island, which makes it easy for travelling and checking out the country.

Our 5 year old boy is fun and curious, loves building with blocks, playing with transformers and our 3 year old girl loves music, dance and they both love cooking and the outdoors. 

Dad is in the Army and Mum is a part time teacher. 5 days a week our son goes to school and our daughter goes to Kindergarten. So mornings and evenings are the busiest when both Mum and Dad work. During the weekend it's family time where we try to do something together as a family.

During the year we visit our families in Tauranga and New Plymouth both of which have beaches.

What we offer:
Free use of a gym and pool facility, accommodation,  wifi, power included, food and an allowance.

Expectations
We are looking for a reliable and friendly Au pair, to join our family for a minimum 3 month period from middle of August 2017. Preferably from France, with some child care experience around this age. You will be expected to drop the kids off to Kindergarten and School 2-3 days a week and then bring them home, also at times we would expect you to look after both children for a few hours ad hoc, while we pop out for appointments or to social events. Preparation with getting breakfast ready and children ready for school; including making their lunches, plus cooking dinners (on the days we work) and housework will be expected too on the days you have to take the children to School and when needed. Plus we would love it if you spoke to the children in French! We would welcome you into our family and include you in our lives while still encouraging you to go and explore our country.
