  • Description


    We are looking for our eighth French speaking demi pair! We live in Tingalpa. It is approx 12km east of the centre of Brisbane and 8km west of the ocean.

    We are looking for someone who can join us from late January and stay at least until April - you could stay longer if you like!

    Please let me know if you are interested in a different period!

    We are looking for someone to live with us full time, as a member of our family and in exchange require 15-20hrs per week looking after our kids on Monday and Wednesday (plus occasional evening babysitting).

    The other 5 days you will be free to do as you please. Our previous Au pairs have done baby sitting and tutoring for other local families to earn pocket money. Some have taken advantage of the extra long weekend and taken mini trips away to explore the area. Some have studied English in their spare time.

    We ask for 15-20hrs a week of help with the kids, in exchange you would become a member of our family, have your own room, food, ammenities, wifi etc.

    We are a family of early risers- the kids wake up with the sun and get straight into laughing and playing!

    We are looking for a female, non-smoker, who has some English speaking skills and who genuinely likes little kids! :)

    Brisbane is a great place to live! You will have 5 days each week during which to explore south east Queensland and beyond. There is a lovely beach/lagoon swimming area at Southbank, in the city- you can easily get there by bus.

    We are a family of 6 so you will truely experience family life with young children- never a dull moment!

    Our children attend a Bilingual French/English school so there is a strong French community to ensure you do not get home sick. We are able to introduce you to several other au pairs who work with other children at the school.
