Hi there,
My husband (Rick) and I live in the beautiful beachside town of Orewa, Auckland, NZ. We have 2 boys, Brodie is turning 1 year old this week and Ethan is almost 3 years old. We currently have an Au Pair from Germany who has become part of our family. Sadly she will be leaving us on the 6th May, and we are looking for another Au Pair to fill in when she leaves. We live 8 minutes walk to beach and shops, and have a 5 bedroom, plus study house. The Au Pair will have their own room, share the downstairs bathroom with the kids, we also have a seperate playroom/lounge with tv and couches. The Au Pair can spend time in there in the evenings, or with us in the lounge.
Rick is 31 and a self employed builder – enjoys surfing, snowboarding, wakeboarding, motorcross and has recently joined the coastguard, Heidi is 32 and a Sales Rep – enjoys wakeboarding, snowboarding, spending time at the beach/park. We have been happily married for 6 years and enjoy doing things together in the weekends. Ethan adores his little brother, is toilet trained, loves playing with his friends, riding his bike, kindergarden, the beach and the park. Brodie has just started walking, loves smiling, playing with his big brother, sleeps through the night and is a great eater!
We require someone who loves kids, has had experience with them, preferably someone who has cared for 1 year olds before. They will do light housework downstairs once a week, clean boys clothes and put away, plus keep their rooms tidy. We will need the Au Pair to look after them Mon, Tues & Thurs for 10 hours a day. We would like someone who is bubbly, enthusiastic and really enjoys playing with children and teaching them new things.  We can pay NZ$180 per week (after tax) and are willing to pay NZ$500 towards their return airfare.
Many thanks,
Heidi May
