This family love putting their gumboots on and getting down to work on their farm and are always actively involved in taking care of their animals. Their busy lifestyle is now in need of an an au pair to help with their daughter’s daily life who is currently 2 years old.

Dad works long hours and mum is currently staying at home taking care of their daughter. They are now looking for an au pair to look after their little one when mum feels under the weather or needs some time for herself. Their ideal au pair would be responsible, has a sense of humour, compassionate and loving. They want their daughter to grow into an independent lady and encourage giving her small responsibilities such as feeding her own pets and growing her own vegetables. It would be great to have an au pair join her in these little routines and be an older sibling to her.

If you are an individual that doesn’t mind putting on gumboots and playing where the dirt is, this family is looking for you! It would be a bonus if you have nanny, babysitting, teaching or coaching experiences or similar. Your typical duties include child-related chores and preparing meals when it’s time for her to eat.

This family lives in Canterbury where there are always new things to look forward to. They have a large garden and play area for you to plan plenty of fun activities with their little one. Their daughter knows how to speak basic German and they don’t mind that you speak your own language as they are interested in learning too! There are many beautiful beaches, mountains and a farm for you to enjoy. Apply today before it’s too late!
