Live-In Au pair:
We are looking for a female au pair (MUST be a Non-Smoker) to help mind our daughter. This will be mostly morning and afternoon work during the week, so evenings and weekends will be your own free time. There may be some shorter work mornings too. Occasionally we would need babysitting outside of regular working hours.
Light housework to help keep the house clean and in running order, and meal preparation for my daughter would be included.
We are a small family with mum, dad and a 2 year old girl. I am a teacher and my husband is a musician. We have a busy, friendly & happy home. We look forward to having an au pair living with us, being part of our family life and helping us have better quality time in our lives.
We live in a medium-large size town (by Irish standards) called Bray. It is by the sea and in between County Dublin and Wicklow. We live a 5-minute walk to the town, or 20 minutes walk to the seaside. There are plenty of shops, language schools, and activities within walking distance so it's not necessary to drive. There are public transport links into Dublin city very close to the house too, so Dublin city centre is not far.
Everyday life at the moment for my daughter is waking between 7-8am, eating breakfast, playing/doing activities/going outside. After lunch she usually has a nap for a couple of hours and then her father takes care of her for the evening.
I work in a school in the day and 3 evenings in a music school, my hours can be long. That is why it is important to me and my family that we have a reliable, trustworthy au pair to live with us, so we know our child is in the best care possible. We would love to have an au pair who is happy, healthy and can show initiative when needed.
If you are looking to explore the area and see the sights, and spend time with friends there will plenty of time to do so. There is a big community of aupairs in Bray. We are in a nice seaside town, with shops, cafes, activities, green areas and parks.
There are several local language schools if that interests you and these are a great place to learn English and meet friends. There's regular public transport and it's just a short journey to Dublin city.
If you do drive we have a family car, but don't worry if you don't.
We are easy going and friendly.
