We are looking for an au pair to come and live in our home. We have 3 children aged 11, 9 and 6 years old. We live in galway city. We need someone who can drive as you will need to drop the kids to and from school.
Our three children go to the same school which starts at 8:30am. All the children finish at ten past two. Some days the children have after school activities. On a typical morning the children get up at seven and leave for school at eight. We usually leave for work before seven thirty.
Neasa is typically home from work on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday by 2:45pm and on Monday and Wednesday by 5:30pm.
In July and August the children are off school, though they do attend some activity camps.
The au pair will look after the children in the morning from 7.30 to 8 and then drive the children to school. The au pair is free in morning. The au pair will cook dinner four days of the week, but not at the weekend. The au pair will collect the children from school and look after them until Neasa is home.
The hours are 07:30am to 08:30am then 2:00pm to 3:00pm three days of the week and 2:00pm to 5:30pm the other two days. We also need the au pair to mind the children for 2 hours approx on a Thursday. This works out at 18 hours approximately per week.
There are many language classes in Galway which run in the morning and in the evening. You would be able to attend either of these times.
