We have never had au pair experience. We are interested in solving the summer time necessity to look after the children when the school close and to give to our girls the opportunuty of share time with english mother thongue girl. The girls are very nice and they enjoy the nice young girls companionship.
We have three young children, a boy who is 4, a girl who is 2 and another girl who is 2 months. We would offer a comfortable home in Dublin 4. You would have your own bedroom with a separate entrance, tv, internet and a separate shower. We would like to incorporate you into our family life but will also make sure that you have enough down time and time to yourself.
My husband and I both work as lawyers and would want someone to live in and take care of our three children from around 8am to 7pm (the hours may vary depending on how busy we are at work, though they would very rarely be longer than this) on weekdays. We may also ask for occasional help on weekends though you will have most weekends off. Our two oldest children will be at montessori from 8.30am to 1pm each day during term time. Our youngest will be at home full time.
We would like someone with a reasonable standard of English but would be delighted for our children to learn a new language from you. We would also prefer to have someone who has had previous experience as an au pair or in a childcare facility.
We would be happy to discuss payment, holidays etc.
References and background checks may be required.
We need an aupair who is flexible and most importantly enthusiastic to join in with the organised chaos of our lives. We would need our Au Pair to drive - to collect the children from school by car, and we would like to get a native French speaker or at least for an au pair that has some operational french. We have had an Au pair from Brazil live with us for the past year and we have enjoyed having her as part of our family and know that she enjoyed the time spent with us. If it suited an au pair could initially live with us in Ireland for a month and then come to brussels with us for the year. Brussels is a great place for a young person with lots of Irish community activities like GAA and music. It is also a great place to base yourself to see other countries in Europe. The Au pair will have her own room, bathroom, internet etc and would work 30 hours a week (1 hour in the morning, 5 hours in the late afternoon, Mon-Fri) and two nights babysitting. There would be scope to engage in language classes during the day and we would be keen to support this. We look forward to hearing from you if you think this would be a good fit for you.
We live in North county dublin beside the sea and with lovely parks nearby. I have three happy boys age 2, 4 and 6. They love playing sports and outdoors and swimming. I am looking for a caring kind mature person who has a full clean driving licence. Initially it would be three days per week for June July and August.
Do you have good English, good experience with young children and like dogs????Then we want to hear from you!!!
Who: We are a happy and busy family living just outside Dublin City. My husband & I are in our early 30's and we work full-time Monday to Friday. We have 2 wonderful boys aged 5 & 2. Josh (5) loves Lego, swimming, Lego, playing outside, Lego, colouring, Lego, drawing, Lego…..! Morgan (2) loves everything Josh is doing and is a fan of Peppa Pig, Mickey Mouse, playing outside etc. We also have a baby girl aged 3 months old
Where: We live in an area called Palmerston, which is a short distance away from gyms, swimming pools, a large shopping centre & parks. There is a great bus service in the area which will get you anywhere in Dublin you wish to get to. We live in a 4 bedroom house, 1 of which will be yours.
We have a Siberian husky dog and a beauceron dog who both love to take part in all family activities!
We would really love to find someone that will be chatty, energetic, friendly, patient, caring and willing to have lots of fun times with us, our children and our dogs! We love to meet new people and would like to welcome someone that would fit into our family’s lifestyle with ease. It is essential that an EXCELLENT level of English is spoken and it would be great if you have a full clean drivers licence but this is not essential.
What: We would need our au pair to work from 8am – 5.30pm caring for Joshua & Morgan & Sianna along with babysitting one evening a week. Joshua is in school so he will need to be dropped off and collected. We would expect our au pair to carry out light household duties i.e put on washing machine, dishwasher, keep the house clean and tidy, some food preparation etc. You will have weekends and all other evenings free to do whatever you wish. We would also expect our au pair to walk the dogs daily when out and about with the children. In return for your hard work, we will provide you with all meals, a TV, DVD player, internet access, a mobile phone & use of a car at weekends when it is not in use by the family.
When: We would need our au pair to start in August for 9 months minimum with a possibility of longer.
If you like the sound of our family then we’d love to hear from you.
Dear Au Pair,
We are a happy easygoing family looking for someone to mind and play with our children, Lucy age 3 and Ben age 1. Our current Spanish au-pair is moving to Dublin to live with her fiancée and we are very sad to say good bye after 10 months. We require someone to work Monday to Friday and do some light house work. Lucy attends play school 3 mornings a week and she will attend Montessori school 5 mornings a week (after summer holidays) in September 2013 . Lucy is collected for school so driving isn’t necessary for the job.
Location & Facilities: We are located within Druids Glen Resort http://www.druidsglenresort.com/ with access to scenic country walks/joggers route, a playground, a playroom, a café, bar, & restaurant etc. in the hotel. Importantly, there are 3 other Spanish au-pairs in the resort, so you won’t be lonely!!! English classes are available in Bray, Wicklow and in Dún Laoghaire, Dublin. We are less than 2 kilometers from Kilcoole village, which has good transport links to Dublin and nearby by towns. We have wireless internet, and you will have your own comfortable double room, with a desk, and with access to main bathroom (shared only with Lucy & Ben).
We are looking for a responsible, kind, and fun person to care for & entertain our little ones. We acknowledge that you are away from home so rest assured that you will be treated as one of the family and we will help you to enjoy your time in Ireland. We would ideally like someone that can stay for 1 year as its less disruptive for Lucy & Ben.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us!! We look forward to hearing from you.
Jane, Paul, Lucy & Ben xxx
