  • Description


    We are an active, sportive and loving family with two children (both girls) of 2 yrs. and 6yrs. and a gentle and affectionate indoor/outdoor cat.

    Our oldest daughter, from early September to June, is in nursery school during the day, four days a week. On Wednesday, she is already taken care nanny up to 4:30 pm . She is adorable, full of intellect and questions, charming and fun loving. She is artistic and loves music, drawing, dancing and being a princess – playing with hairstyles with her long blonde hair and clothes. She also likes to play all kinds of games. Her younger sister is different as is often the case in many families. She is adorable, full of energy, very fun and curious. She is quite sportive (climbs everything), “in charge of the family” and often requires more attention from us. While the oldest is more independent, the youngest requires more surveillance due to her young age and her character. Monday and Wednesday there is a nanny for the smaller child.

    My husband is a surgeon working full time and I am physical therapist who is currently working part time in order to spend more time with the children. We are both French speaking as are the children. We can communicate in English however very basic English but we will manage. If you are wishing to learn French, it is the perfect opportunity. If you already speak French, this is certainly an advantage.

    We are sportive, passionate about mountains, horses, hiking and rock climbing (I have a horse nearby). We are also passionate about nature and ecology. We like to travel and could take you with us from time to time.

    We live in a spacious home with a nice garden, mountain views and jacuzzi.

    We are looking for a responsible, experienced au pair with solid references to take care of our children, particularly our second daugther.
    Or you can help preparing the evening meal, clean the dishes afterwards and get them ready for bed.
    We would like you to accompany them from time to time like an older sibling to learn English, to play and nurture them and to watch out for them (most especially the youngest).
    Besides each evening and morning, we would like to have on average two weekends a month for us to have some activities as a couple. When we take this weekend, your previous or following week will be mostly free for you. Other than these specified periods, you will have plenty of time for yourself to study or for your own recreation.
