French/English Bilingual Family in Paris

French/English Bilingual Family in Paris

Author -  Paris Family

We live in a big apartment in the very centre of Paris, in the 7th arrondissement, with a lovely view of the Eiffel Tower. 

We are very close to the River Seine and next door to the Eiffel Tower (5 minute walk). You will live in our apartment with us in a large double bedroom with a big bathroom. We look forward to meeting you!


We are a French-English bilingual family. We are a family of three: Myself, my son (7 in May) and daughter (5). My children were born and grew up in London and we just moved to Paris in January. Their father still lives in London (we divorced over 3 years ago).

I am from Paris originally, having grown up and studied here, and I speak French to the children but they generally reply in English. They go to Lennen Bilingual School in the 7th arrondissement of Paris. At school, half the classes are in French and the other half in English, so the children have homework in both languages.
My son is in 1st grade (CP) and my daughter is in pre-kindergarten (MS) until end June 2016. She is learning to read and write. At home we speak both languages.

We are looking for a young lady fluent in English to join us as an au pair to help with the children. I work in finance and I am transitioning into a new role. 



You will help us in the mornings getting the children fed and ready for school, and drop off one or both in the mornings. 

School is a 5-10 minute walk from home but at the moment the children are in two different buildings. You will collect the children from school (3:30pm and 4pm) and take them to activities, to the park, or supervise their homework. You will prepare and give them dinner – I hope you like to cook! 

After dinner, you will help them to have their bath and get ready for bed. Usually, I am home in the evenings, but sometimes I may be back late. 

On Wednesdays, the children finish school at 12 noon so you will spend the afternoon with them. You will also babysit several nights a week when I go out or if I work late. I do not cook a lot so you will need to know how to cook for the children and for yourself!

During school holidays, we often go away and you will have the time off. Sometimes we will stay in Paris and you will look after the children and help organise activities. Sometimes you will come with us on holiday, in particular during the summer when we stay in a house by the beach in the south of France.

The children love to read, draw, play Lego, but are also very active. They like to go out to the park and playgrounds, play tennis, swim, and in the winter love to ski. They get along well together and like to play together (only a year and a half between them). They are sociable and like to meet with their friends to play. They have never had an au pair before, but have always had a live-in nanny since they were born. Our last nannies were from New Zealand and we currently have a housekeeper for the housework so no need to worry!
