We like lots of sports, riding, swimming, skiing, cricket, golf and gymnastics.  The children love bouncing on their trampoline, playing on their bikes and making things out of paper / glue etc..
Giles and I enjoy good food and wine, holidays in the sun and walking

We are a friendly busy family with one child in all day school, one at nursery 4 mornings a week and a baby at home. NB he is not 1 as shown above but actually will be 6 months in September but I couldn't get months to register in the box provided! We need someone with lots of fun and energy who wants to be part of our family and who is flexible and likes small children. We need someone who sees what needs doing and gets on and does it! Hours may vary a little from week to week but we always try to accommodate the needs of our au pair.  We have had three previous au pairs all of whom have stayed for a long time. We can also offer extra work cleaning for local families if required. We are on a farm, 10 minutes from Canterbury which is a fun City with lots of students and is  quite international. It has lots of bars, two or three clubs and a cinema and sports centre. We are 1.5 hours from London by train.
