Description:
Hi,
Our family is fun and a little mad! My name is Warwick & my wife is Marcelle, we are looking for someone to come & help with our young family. We have a 3 yr old daughter & twin boys 18 months old!
About us.. we live in Ballarat, which is a city of 100,000 people & is situated 1.5 hrs from Melbourne in Victoria, Australia. My wife & I lived in Melbourne for most of our lives, but with a young family we decided to move to a smaller city. We are very glad we did & really enjoy our lives up here!
Typically we would require 35-40 hrs/wk of support, childcare & child minding from an Au Pair. We would be happy to pay any further hours at an agreed hourly rate as required. We will need you to assist us with feeding, bathing, changing and playing with the kids. There will also be a requirement for help with household chores such as cleaning, washing and possibly some meal preparation.
