Fairlie family needs au pair!

Our family of four live close to the township of Fairlie and we are looking for someone responsible, nurturing and enthusiastic to join our family and help us with the day to day care of our children and some light housework. We have a large backyard to help keep the children entertained with plenty of play equipment.

We have a 4 year old girl who attends preschool 3 days per week and a nearly 2 year old boy who is at home mostly but has just started two mornings at preschool. Both kids love people and outings and love having someone here looking after them. There are plenty of activities on in Fairlie during the week that you could attend with the children or you can hang out in our awesome backyard. We both work fulltime so are looking for someone trustworthy and honest to care for our children.

Our ideal au pair has experience looking after children. In addition to this, you will be mature, confident, enthusiastic and have a cool head when situations get overwhelming. We hope to find someone who will encourage, nurture and be an integral part of our children's lives.

We can't wait to show you around our town, our country and to welcome you into our family!
