This happy and active family of 5 is looking for a big sibling who would love to be part of their family. From where they stay, it is only a 5 minute drive or 10 minutes by bus to Christchurch City, 15 minutes to the top of the Port Hills, 15 minutes to the beach or lake and an hour to the ski field. They also have a dog, a chicken, a swimming pool and a spa.
Their eldest son (12) is a busy boy with special needs and a vegetarian. He is a super happy boy that loves being outside, riding his bike and do grocery shopping. Their second child (11) loves hockey and goes to circus school. She will need some help with her homework from time to time. The youngest daughter (9) also goes to a circus school, does horse riding and loves ice skating. On the weekends, the girls love going on adventures. They will go hiking, paddle boarding and sometimes horse riding. When they are at home, they would do some baking, play board games and watch movies.
Your role as an au pair would be first and foremost to be a friend and companion to this family, caring for their children and teaching them through fun activities. If you are someone who is fun, proactive, energetic, happy, respectful, considerate, reliable and trustworthy, you are perfect for this family. Your typical duties would be child-related work, preparing meals and some light household chores.
Ideally, you’ll have nanny, babysitting, teaching or coaching experiences or similar to join this family.
