We live approx four miles from Mallow town. There is no public transport, but we go regularly Mallow and will bring you there for various events. There is an au pairs group in Mallow which organises various events, as well as English language classes. There are also a number of other au pairs in our area who usually spend time together.
Conall loves being active and involved in sport- he plays Gaelic football and hurling as well as soccer. He loves his twiceweekly swimming lessons and also enjoys a theatre tots class. He loves playing outside in the big garden which has goal posts and all sorts of bikes and trikes! He also really likes drawing and colouring. Oran also loves being active and running around outside. He enjoys pretend play in his cubby house as well as playing with his toys. Both boys love spending time at the nearby playgrounds. As a family, we enjoy walks together in nearby Doneraile Park as well as trips to Cork City, Kilarney etc. We enjoy spending time with our families which live locally too. Also, we like spending time in Dingle, Co.Kerry where there is a family holiday home so when our schedules permit, we like to spend weekends there. We love to travel and holiday in France and Italy in particular. Both Mum and Dad work for international companies, and we love to learn about other cultures and would love to learn from you more about your country.
A typical day involves Conall and Oran attending school and Montessori in the mornings, so after they have been dropped to school, you will have the mornings to yourself. When they come home, they usually have a healthy lunch, Conall does homework, and then they play outside if the weather permits or inside, they love doing jigsaws and art. The boys usually have activities in the afternoon to which they will need to be brought e.g. Swimming, drama, tennis.
You will be required to look after the two boys outside of school hours four days ( Mon- Thursday) per week, approx 30 hours per week. Therefore you will have all weekends and most Friday free, as well as nights.
For care of the boys and collecting and dropping them to activities and school, you will have use of a car. Therefore a full, clean drivers' licence capable of being used in the EU is required.
