-----------------------------------
I have 5 year old girl in school and after school and 2 year old boy full time creche. Thinking they might enjoy an au pair for summer but we are a family of four + a dog and live in a small 4 bed semi with one bathroom. Will I have room for another person and would that person have enough privicy of their own.

Need them to mind kids 5 days a week 9.-5 plus ne night baby sitting light house work and cooking for kids expected
July / August only

Looking on line the price paid is €100 - €120 a week is that too little for someone who´s responsible for your kid

au pair rates havent changed since the 90s
3.30 is a disgrace.the rates need to be changed even 5 or 6 euro an hr would be better.i worked as an au pair for 6 months in canada.it was like being in prison i wasent allowed out i had to do everything for them.they where the most laziest people ive ever seen.and there kids were from hell.i worked from 7 till around 9 all for 60 dollars
