S - 11 - girl
One parent family
My daughter is 10 and will be 11 in October 2009. We are a British family of Jamaican/Italian descent. We live in a 3 bedroom house in, South London, England and enjoy spending time together. We are looking for a friendly, competent, caring Au Pair. We speak only English at home so it is important that you are able to speak and understand Basic English. If you’d like assistance with your English we would be happy to help.
We are a happy family and my daughter is a thoughtful person whose hobbies include, gymnastics, swimming, piano, horse riding, cycling and roller skating. She goes to the local primary school, and once a week attends gymnastics, swimming, piano lessons and maths lessons. We have two long haired cats Che Guevara and Coco Chanel, a dog called Isis, and Mary the hamster.
We live in Brockley, which is in South East London. Transport is very good. There are several buses, 3 local train stations Brockely, Honor Oak, and Crofton Park, which is 4 minutes walk away. Trains into London take on average 17 minutes.
Our current Au Pair will leave us on the 17th Augsut 2009. She will e happy to tell you more about the family. Please let me know if you wish to speak with her.
