Chris & Johanna with 4 amazing children. Children's ages in January 2019: Hannah-Grace (5 y/o), Isaac (4 y/o) and Eli (3 year old) and new baby James (18 months old).

We are a fun loving, fit, active, Christian family. We are looking for our fourth Au Pair. Our first 3 Au Pairs have been an AMAZING part of our family and we remain in constant contact. Our previous Au Pairs help with the interview of each new Au Pair, so you'll get to talk to our previous Au Pairs to find out from them all about our family 🙂 Chris (dad) runs a fitness business from home and helps with childcare. Johanna (mum) works in the city centre as an executive assistant.

We live in Auckland, in a safe central city location called Westmere where there are parks, beaches, shops, bars and cafes just a short walk away.

Two parents, two kids and an enthusiastic dog are looking for a happy and outgoing au pair to live with us and enjoy taking care of Jarvis (almost 7.5) and Remy (recently turned 3). We live in Takapuna – an awesome beachside suburb of Auckland – a stunning beach, lots of cafes and bars and only a 10 minute bus ride to the centre of the city. We lead pretty busy lives - both parents working ‘corporate’ jobs that are fairly demanding. Harley, Bec, Jarvis and Airedale Terrier Truman were born in Australia and move to New Zealand five years ago. We love to travel both in NZ and overseas when we can. We enjoy socialising and hanging out with friends. We find New Zealand a beautiful, safe and happy place to live. We know what it’s like to be away from friends and family but really love living in Auckland and have made a great life here. Remy is our much-loved Kiwi baby. Truman (our dog) lives outside.

The Scott Family (Canterbury)

Location - Christchurch
Preferred Start Date - 7/01/2019 hours
Programme - Au Pair Mate
Term - 9 months
Number of Children - 2

Hi! We’re the Scotts – Nadia, Stuart, Gemma (7) and Jessica (5), and Bella the cat. We’re a happy, easy-going and really active family who live in a village called Prebbleton, on the edge of Christchurch in New Zealand’s South Island. Gemma and Jessie are amazing kids. They’re both clever, warm, loving and considerate. We feel like very lucky parents to have such great children and we think you’ll love them too. We are looking for an Au Pair who really enjoys spending time with the kids and who loves to play. Gem and Jess just want someone to bounce on the trampoline with them, draw, play games, do puzzles and crafts, and take them exploring. They love having a “big sister” in the house to hang out with, and they are great company. We think Christchurch is a fantastic place to come as an Au Pair, especially if you love the outdoors – with so much to see and do within a few hours drive of our home. We’re looking forward to meeting you, and introducing you to our family and city!

We are located in a rural area. We run a sheep and beef farm and I also run a Media Production business. We are very active and love the outdoors. Frank joins us in most activities happening around the farm and he loves being outdoors. As we are both working from home we enjoy helping each other where we can. We love animals and have one cat, four dogs, two donkeys and one horse that we consider our pets. We are a down to earth New Zealand rural family who enjoy what we do and love what our land has to offer us.

The Cruickshank Family (Wellington)

Term - 12 months
Number of Children - 2

We're a family of 5, with two lovely daughters and our golden retriever dog. Our daughters are Olivia (3 yrs) and Harriet (7 months). Olivia is a social, busy girl - she likes to run, not walk! Harriet is developing into a little social butterfly too, and doesn't like to miss out on the fun. We're pretty easy going, and like getting out and about with the girls. We live in Khandallah, Wellington. We love the area, with its great little village, lovely kindy and a good community feel about the place. We're also lucky enough to have a fantastic view over Wellington from our place.
