Dear Au Pair, We are a family of 4 with two boys William and Kevin, William is 8 and is beginning to be independent. Kevin is only 6 and still needs someone to be with him. He is a shy little boy but he is very nice. We would like the Au Pair to look after the boys in the morning, delivering them at school and making activities with them after schools (games, homework, cooking). Light cooking is required, because we'd like you to teach our boys cooking (easy stuff), but just to make them participate. You will have your week-ends off. We live in Christchurch and it's really a nice place to live in. Besides if you want to travel (and you really should!) We are close to the New Zealander greatest parks (national Park, Mount cook...). If you enjoy hiking and discovering landscapes, that's the place to be.
Dear Au Pair, We are a family of 5. Our children are Harry (3), Ashley (5) and Craig (7). We need an Au Pair to help us in our daily lives with the children and to make our children aware of the different cultures in the world. Ashley and Craig are going to school, so you will just have to wake them up and to bring them to school. Harry is very young and needs surveillance the whole day. We would also like the Au Pair to share and teach her/his culture to the children. My husband and I are in the army, we love sports and especially mountaineering. Don't worry about army's lifestyle cliché; it's not working like this at home (or not yet) ;-). We like in the capital: Wellington and it's a great place to live and to enjoy our country.
Hi, We are fun-loving family living in Dunedin in South Island. We have two lovely daughter Susan and Shirley and a little boy Harry. Harry is 3 years old and likes coloring books jigsaw puzzle. Susan and Shirley are going to school, they are respectively 6 and 8. They both like nature, and animals, especially dolphins. Once we have been in a zoo and they have seen dolphins and since, they are just fond of dolphins. We really enjoy seeing our little girls discovering the world. About the parents: we are both working for the D.O.C and are really interested in environmental issues. We have scientific formations and we are working on the issues such as climate change and volcano eruption possibilities in the Pacific. So we often have to travel and you may have to take care of the children sometimes, but don't worry, we try to make it so that one of us is at home when the other isn't. If you do extra hours, you will be paid for it.
Dear Au Pair, We are a very friendly Christian family living in Hawke's Bay. We are looking for someone to take care of our little baby Sean (2) and his brother Stuart (5). Sean is very young and he needs to be constantly under surveillance, but don't worry, he sleeps a lot! We also need an Au Pair to pick up Stuart from school, deliver him at his activities and help him in his homework. Stuart is a very nice kid and we want him to become open-minded and discover other cultures. It'd be really great if you could teach him a few words in your native-language. The parents are easy-going, we are Christian and practising, but it's not a problem if you're not religious.
Dear Au Pair, We can't wait for you to join our family - we have three lovely children and are just waiting for the right person to come a long and join us! Our oldest daughter go to school but our other two daughters are at home. As I work flexible hours it will be easy for you to get some time for yourself and to also make sure that you enjoy New Zealand. You would have the entire "middle" of the day off to go to the gym, beach or maybe even just go for a walk? You will have your own room and bathroom which we have purposely built for having an Au Pair. You will have plenty of privacy and also the chance to use our car and meet other Au Pairs in the area. As we are central in Auckland there is so much to do - and so many opportunities for you! We do enjoy the outdoors, reading, hiking etc - so if you are keen on this - that is great! But what we would love is someone who can become a big sibling to our children and really enjoy them! It would be great if you could help to make sure that the children are organised each morning as well as help me to cook them meals and organise their lunch packs. Most importantly is for yout o have fun with our children and that you enjoy your year with us. We can't wait to meet you.
