Always leave early and abide by the speed regulations and following distances.
We want you to be a quick thinker with a calm but careful nature. Have a love for outdoors and a self-motivator for creating activities and keeping the house under control.

We also live and work on a farm and have various animals such as horse’s dogs chooks sheep & cows. You will be required to feed and care for these as part of your daily routine with kids.
Other things – ideally you will have basic first aid training / CPR training – if not we can organise this.

There are various other Au pairs/ Nannies around here along with high levels of backpackers therefore you shouldn’t be without friends even with our rural location – but it does require you to be confident and outgoing in order to build relationships.
We often have backpackers stay with us a various times too and have been ever so lucky to have had previous super nannies be part of our lives over the last 3.5 years!
