We are an American family with French ties living in Palo Alto
seeking a French-speaking nanny or au pair to help take care of
our children. We have three children -- 3 months, 3 years, and
5 years -- but one of us is usually home to care for the baby, so the
nanny/au pair is to help care for the other two. We are setup for an
au pair arrangement and have a private room for the au pair along
with a car. We cook our own meals and will cook for the au pair if
he/she were to stay with us. It pays $225 per week (we provide
room and board on top of this) and would be an arrangement for as
long as six months if you so desire. If you are living locally and
prefer not to live with us (although we are friendly!), we welcome
this help as well and can discuss details depending on your
If interested, please email me (Greg) at ghgilbert@....
