Join A Family In Christchurch

Listing Added: 12/03/2018

This busy family of 6 are looking for an au pair to support them in their daily lives in Christchurch. Mum and dad both work full time jobs which can take a lot of their energy so they’d love an au pair to join them and spend lots of quality time to their children when they’re not home. If you’re looking for a bit of a challenge but want to live with a family full of spirit and fun, read on.

The family have 4 children aged 7, 6, 2 and 3 months old. Due to their youngest being a newborn, they will need an au pair who has experience taking care of infants and babies. The girls love playing on the farm land in their gumboots but also love playing with their dolls, doing gymnastics, drawing and just watching tv.

They are a very relaxed family and enjoy lots of laughter and being silly together. You’re guaranteed a lot of fun, and an easy going and enjoyable stay if you choose this family. If you enjoy your exercise, they also have a home gym with a treadmill, spin bike and weights available if this was of interest to you. They also have two lounges with Sky TV, as well as wi-fi throughout the house. In addition to this, they also have a spa pool and currently looking into putting in a heated swimming pool in the back yard.

If this hasn’t tickled your interest, we don’t know what will! If you’re an easy going, fun, outgoing and patient individual, please contact us today.

Ideally, you’ll have nanny, babysitting, teaching or coaching experiences or similar to join this family and you’ll be expected to help out with light child-related house chores and preparing meals for the children. Most importantly, you’ll provide the girls with lots of support and care.
