  • Description


    We are looking for someone to join our family and experience NZ from about the end of August or beginning of September.

    We are a lovely family of four: Mum, Dad, an eight year old girl, a three year old boy, one little dog (toy poodle) and a cat . We live in a nice house in a good area which has great bus and train access and lovely parks as well as the Waterfront with a small beach close by.
    You would be part of our family and during the week assist with childcare for our girl and boy. The rest of the time you can explore our lovely city/country side with excursions, trips, museeum visits or wonderful bush walks.

    It would be wonderful if you have experience in looking after children.
    On some days we need help with school and kindy drop off/pick up (car provided) so you need a full drivers license and have experience driving.

    We have a fully furnished room so can accommodate one female person.
    We look forward to hearing from you and hopefully welcome you as part of our family and show you the NZ way of live.

    Apart from the English language practice you would also learn about New Zealand culture as well as German and Fijian language and culture. We have lived in Auckland for a long time and travelled around NZ and the world a lot so we can share tips on where to go and what to see.
