Dear Mothers Help / Aupair
Arrangement: Live in or Live out – to be discussed
Payment: generous and negotiable depending on living arrangement
We are a busy, energetic, warm, fun, loving family of 5. We are 3 adorable children:
2 girls, and one boy, and a Mother and Father.
We live on a farm on the Mornington Peninsula, 50 minutes from Melbourne. The
Peninsula is a combination of beautiful countryside, beaches and wineries and there is
plenty to do and see. http://www.visitvictoria.com/Regions/Mornington-Peninsula
Our farm is on 100 acres and surrounded by bush and native animals, particularly
kangaroos, seen every day. Aside from the native animals we have two Jack Russell dogs who are very much part of the family and horses and cows. We are a short car ride to many swimming and surf beaches.
We love being healthy and active and spending time in the outdoors whenever we can. We love horse riding, going to the beach, swimming, surfing, stand-up paddle boarding, playing tennis and snow skiing.
The father of the family has a very busy work life, which is varied and seasonal.
The mother is currently working part-time from home but otherwise she is a full-time
The girls are 91/2 yrs and 8 yrs old, and the boy is 51/2yrs old. They are very bright, bubbly, loving and affectionate children. They adore the outdoors and being active and are very creative. They all go to the same local school 5 days a week and do lots of after school actives.
The Mothers Help / Au Pair we are looking for must have had experience with children. They
must be mature and confident, bubbly, energetic, hardworking and motivated and
able to use their own initiative. They must enjoy being active and spending time in the outdoors, including the beach and snow and like animals and have ideally have experience with horses. (There is the opportunity to keep your own horse and ride at our farm should you wish.)
You must be an experienced and competent driver. (There will be a car available for personal use if necessary).
You must be willing to be flexible to fit in with our busy lifestyle and schedule and be prepared for working hours to change from week to week, including working some weekends. A weekly schedule would be provided in advance so that everyone knows the week that lies ahead.
The role is to assist the mother with household tasks including shopping, cooking, laundry, some light housework and running errands, as well as helping with horses and farm activities and the care of the 3 children and dropping them off and picking them up from school and taking them to after school activities.
You will have the opportunity to have a fun, active time with our family and experience living on a farm in a really beautiful, rural-coastal area, and to spend lots of time at the beach and to the snow with the family. (We relocate to Mt Buller for the winter where the kids go to an on-mountain school from late June – late Sept/early Oct.) We might also need you to come away with us on family holidays.
We are a very experienced family with Au Pairs. We have had very positive experiences in the past 10 years and really enjoy having them share our lives. A few of our past girls are available for you to talk to should you wish.
Living in facilities
Should you live in you have your own bedroom with sitting/living space, TV and Wifi and ensuite bathroom.
We very much look forward to hearing from you.
