We live in Hervey Bay, a small coastal town about 4 hours north of Brisbane in sunny Queensland. I have two children, aged 7 and 9yo and I am looking for an au pair to start this May 2021 for 6 months.
The children are home-schooled but there is no rigid structure to their learning and I don't require any formal teaching. The only requirement is to spend time with them, engage, play together, and look after them while I am at work.
I work full time in a hospital with a varied shift pattern which also includes nights. From the end of June I will be working on a week-on-week-off basis.
Expectations from our au pair include:
- play and actively engage with the children inside and outside the house
- Driving licence
- Prepare food and snacks for the children when I'm at work
- Participate in home activities like a member of the family e.g. helping with meals, light cleaning, laundry etc.
- Regularly spending time outdoors with the children; beach, playground, nature, taking them to our social events etc.
- Bathe the children and put them to bed when I'm at work
- $400 per week, internet, own room, and conditional use of a vehicle for local driving.
- Lots of time outdoors in pleasant weather and places
- Plenty of time with other adults and children
- We are very happy to share our daily life with you if you wish so, so you're welcome to join us in our adventures even when you're off duty.
