Hello! I´am Cecilia
We are a friendly and welcoming Anglo-French family looking for someone who can help take care of our children during the week.
We have three kids (9,9 and 7), they all study very well at school and participate in many activities after school (football, swimming lessons, ballet, art, scouts, etc...) We spend a lot of time as a family in the evenings and over the weekends; we go cycling in the forest, go out on our boat, play badminton, go to the theatre, etc.
We are looking for someone who really likes kids and is quite active as well as organised. You will be responsible for driving them to / back from school most days and taking them to their activities also by car. You will need to have their bags ready before then (eg ballet clothes on ballet day) as well as water and a snack as they get very hungry! You will also need to supervise their homework and make sure their clothes for the next day are washed and ironed (in England they wear school uniforms).
We live in a very nice part of Southampton, a residential area not far from the city centre with bars, shops and language schools. Their are many students and other Au Pairs in the city, even in the house opposite our house. If you want to visit the uk it's very easy, their are direct trains to London and many other places many times a day. There is also an airport with many European flights.
We currently have an Italian Au Pair who is finishing at the end of September, so we need someone available beginning of October. Before her we had a Spanish Au Pair and both would be happy to give a testimonial if you wish to know more about our life.
We hope to hear from you soon and to welcome somebody new into our family!
Thank you for writing to us with information about you.
