We are a family of three. We have one daughter (6 years old),and she started her school from this September.
My daughter is currently taking piano and English lessons once a week. She also needs to practice her piano for 30-60 minutes per day. She seems to like playing the piano, even though sometimes she'll complain that it takes up too much of her play time.
My wife is an interior designer. She is kind and personable.
I run my own exporting company. Our main customers are in Europe. We know Johanna and the Kuvaja family through our business, as we have more than 10 years experience working with their company. Because of my work, I use English frequently. However, I would still like to improve my oral English.
Our apartment is about 140m squared. It's located in a big gated community that houses over 500 families. Our home has three bedrooms, a reading room, a kitchen, living room/dining room, and two bathrooms. We also have a very beautiful park with a lot of trees and flowers. All cars coming into the community enter through the underground parking garage, so it's very safe for the kids to be playing near the streets. Our community is very clean and safe. We are very happy to be living here.
Where we are
Our city is called Ningbo. It's about two hours south of Shanghai, and there's a high speed bullet train commuting between the two cities. Ningbo is also two hours by plane to Peking (about 1100 km). The population of our city is about 8.8 million in the downtown area.
Ningbo is a harbor city, and there are many large cargo ships transporting goods all around the world. Ningbo is also a famous trading city, and all trade customers in the world know this city. Because of the history in trade, Ningbo is known as a city that is welcoming of foreigners, and is safe and clean. We love our city!
Why we want an Au Pair
The main reason why we would like to hire an au pair is to improve our oral English and learn a different culture. My wife and I could learn a lot, but this will be especially beneficial for our daughter. Also we are hoping to get some help with cleaning and cooking. Normally we cook Chinese food but we would like to try some Western cuisine as well.
Welcome to China and into our family!
