Family's Introduction to Au Pair

We are a young professional couple (Michael is in real estate and Moira is a French-immersion school teacher) with three beautiful, happy daughters aged 2, 6 and 8 years old. Our older daughters are attending a French-only school near our house. We love to go for walks on the seawall or in the forest, and to playgrounds for the kids to play. We love good food and eat a healthy diet at home.

Grouse mountain is only a few minutes from our house if you like skiing or snowboarding.

Our girls love colouring and drawing and dancing. The older girls are fairly independent but need coaxing from time to time. Our youngest is discovering words and how things work. And she loves to dance and make funny faces and make people laugh.

Moira speaks French with the children much of the time, and Michael really only speaks English.

In general, we are an easy-going and happy family. We love our children very much and need someone we can trust to protect them and nurture them when we are not home. We have had au pairs before and it is a great experience. Each girl was unique, and each experience different (in part because our children were a different age each time), and each girl became a beloved part of our family during their stay. Some have even returned to visit!

We look forward to meeting our next au pair!

Job Description

We would like a patient, energetic, kind, and dependable au pair to be responsible for walking our girls a short distance to and from school or the school bus each day, preparing snacks and meals for them, playing with the children and helping them to clean up after themselves, bathing the youngest one (the older two can bathe themselves, but might need encouragement to start), dressing the little one, and reading to the children and helping the older two with homework, as well as general housekeeping. Moira works part time as a teacher, so you will need to look after the toddler during the day, feeding, changing, playing, stimulating her and keeping her safe when she is not sleeping.

We live in a new, very clean and comfortable house in beautiful North Vancouver, with mountains on one side and ocean on the other, and many parks and trails in-between. Accommodation will be a comfortable room with a queen-size bed and shared bathroom. Television and wireless internet are provided, along with all the amenities of a home.

We will need you to look after the children while Michael is at work (Monday-Friday), although our older daughters are in school from 9:00-3:00. We also need help with housework including cleaning and laundry.

We are looking for someone who is adaptable and flexible, ready to help out whenever help is needed. Ideally, our au pair will be someone who, after a little while, will be able to take initiative and help us with household tasks without needing to be asked. Cleanliness and organization are important to us.

We also respect our au pair's private time and private space in the home, and encourage her to enjoy the city while she is here.

We prefer someone who is already in Canada or has a visa for Canada so there is no uncertainty about her ability to come here, but we are open to all good candidates.

We look forward to hearing from au pairs.
