This fun and easy going family of four is looking for an au pair to help raise their two children. They are a very outdoor family who also have lots of pets and live on a farm with lots of cows! In this rural lifestyle you’ll get to enjoy their large garden, horse riding and exploring. You will also be only a short drive away from local cafes, shops, swimming pools, library and much more!

Their son is a smart, caring and inquisitive boy. He makes everyone laugh and smile. His biggest interests are in farming and construction vehicles so if you know anything about this, you’re already one step closer to being his best friend. Their daughter is a true lady. She’s quick to learn and not afraid to try new things. She loves playing dolls, painting, dress up and playing with animals.

The family is looking for someone to be a great role model, willing to be part of a busy family, and help out with duties around the house. They must also be organised and fun-loving! You will be getting the kids ready for school and kindergarten in the morning, responsible for some child-related light house work and pick the kids up again. The family absolutely can't wait to show you around beautiful Christchurch, the Canterbury region and give you their warmest welcome!
