We live on a small farm and have lots of animals. You have access to a pool and your own private room in a comfortable modern house. Kids are both at school during the day so you are welcome to do as much or as little as you like in your free time.
We are an Australian expatriate family who are moving home to Adelaide at the end of June. I have a corporate job and we are used to living with a full time helper and nanny. We are a health conscious family, love nature, sports and the outdoors. We have a large extended family and are very family oriented. Our children have been raised internationally and have a keen interest in other cultures, food and languages.
We are an American family who has been living in Brisbane, Australia for 9 years. Ethan and I (Margie) are both university professors (biologists) with two little boys, Jasper (7) and Malcolm (4) We also have a cat and four chickens. Our house is in a quiet suburb a few km from the city centre and it has excellent bike and bus access to the city centre. We are easy-going outdoorsy people looking for someone who is nice, reliable and generally helpful around the house. Both our boys are energetic and like to play outdoors. Jasper loves legos and star wars. Malcolm is a big personality, with a desire to do anything his brother is doing but also loves ball sports, imaginary play and running around. Our main goal in getting an au pair is to get extra help with the boys and to expose the boys to people from other parts in the world.
Hi, We are looking for our next lovely AuPair to join our family in Feb March and be a big sister to our nine, eight and four year old. With us you will have lots of fun, stay with a great bunch of humans and of course be in Marvellous Melbourne. We live in Heathmont, a suburb in Melbourne. We are about thirty to forty mins from the CBD by car, or forty mins by train. We walk to Ringwood Station, Eastland shopping centre, Aquanation leisure centre, Ringwood Central Tennis club and lots of other places from our house we are in a great spot. Heathmont is part of the green wedge of Melbourne so its, well, green. Lots of trees, parks, bushwalking trails, bike trails etc, its a lovely place to call home, and so easy to get to the big events in the city. If you have lots of energy, enjoy books, boardgames, Lego, the outdoors, dogs - and children of course, then come and spend some time with us. You will have weekends to travel or work or hang out with us of course, and plenty of time to yourself whilst our youngest is at kinder and the older boys are at school. For two hundred and fifty dollars per week, you will have your own bungalow, access to the car, and work about four days of the week. You will have weekends to yourself if you wish, or can join in on family activities - it's up to you. If you play piano or enjoy running or swimming, that will be a bonus for us. Thanks, Claire.
We are a happy, easy going family. We only have the one child - a three year old daughter who is happy, funny and quite easy. We also have a very friendly dog. We enjoy getting out and doing fun things on the weekend like hikes, day trips etc. We love to cook, travel, enjoy the odd glass of wine. We have a tidy, comfortable home and would be love to find someone who could become part of the family and who enjoys the similar things. Our house has four bedrooms, two bathrooms and is less than 10 minutes walk from a train station with the train ride taking approx 40 minutes to the city. Our local town center with shops, restaurants and cafes is a two minute drive away and larger shopping center is only a 10 minute drive. We have a car which would be available for the au pair to use through the week. Melbourne and the state of Victoria has so much to offer including night life, beautiful locations for sight seeing including wine regions and beaches, culture, art galleries, music venues, sporting venues and everything else you could want!
