We expect you to be dynamic, responsible, experienced and open-minded, to take care of the children when we're not there, when we're at work.
Play with them, entertain them and above all keep them safe with you.
Some household chores like emptying the dishwasher, setting the table, cleaning a few hours a week, taking the children to school, cooking for the children and picking them up. Also take care of our garden a little bit.
If you have a talent or an admiration for cooking, it's only happiness, making us discover dishes from your region would be a privilege and an excellent moment of sharing.

A single post is not assigned to anyone. All children help here.
When we're not working, we enjoy and we're with our children, so you'll have free time to go out, take lessons, or do whatever you want.
Your weekends will be free, we can ask you a few weeks in advance if you can babysit for a couple of hours, but it won't be recurrent.
We would like you not to smoke, to be serious, to respect and sincerely love children.
We are counting on you for the duration of the contract, we will do everything to make you feel at home, in our family. But it is very important that the length of time you want to stay with us is respected because we have to organize ourselves months in advance with our large family, and for our work.

The main objective is that our children learn and speak English at home with you. We are committed to speaking French to you, taking time with you to explain yourself well and to help you progress in French.
If you have basics in French, that's fine. But we want you to speak English throughout your stay with us. And we will speak to you in French for a superb cultural exchange.

On Thursdays and Fridays, the work depends on the requests of our customers. We will organize in advance.
We will make our final decision on the future au pair in February 2023.
We will ask you to find out about the corresponding visa for your visit to your country, so that it is not difficult for you to come with the appropriate visa.
Inquire to have the international driving license, it is a free request depending on the country.

We are going to commit ourselves financially to our country to ensure you, a lot of administrative procedures, and additional costs related to your coming, we offer you accommodation, food, laundry, water, electricity, we will give you 300€/month of pocket money, we lend you our car with car insurance, a sim card for the phone, another health insurance in case, with a social security number so that you are covered in case of illness.

Candidates who think they will be paid for doing nothing, that our family pays for the trip, the visa, that we travel every weekend in Europe, you are wrong... Look for another family.
We are a very generous family with deserving people in our family. Once with us, you will not be disappointed.
