Letter to the family

Dear prospective family,

I am Eloise, a 25 year old British woman currently living and working in Zürich, Switzerland.
I moved here 2 and a half years ago to be with my partner and became an au pair for a Swiss family, and have since been working and studying here. I am from a very large family, and so taking care of young children (and old ones too!) comes very naturally to me.

I have decided to come to Germany to improve my German, and after such a positive experience au pairing in the recent years, thought that I would do it again. I think it is a wonderful way of learning a language, getting to know a new city, making valuable friendships and connections with a family abroad, and of course bringing joy to young children's lives.

I am a creative person, who loves to paint, draw, make, bake, cook! Really anything that stimulates my creative spirit and imagination. I would be delighted to cook you healthy vegetarian meals throughout the week, and bake you cakes whenever you like.

Since I am also studying part time, it is important that I have enough free time to focus on that - even if that means just a few hours per day. I would also need to have two full days off per week where I am not required to help out to ensure I have a happy work/life balance.

I am a really conscientious person who puts a lot of care and love into my tasks. I am respectful and reliable, and expect to be respected in return. I am happy to help around the house with organisation, shopping, pet care, and cooking, and tidying, but I am not willing to be a cleaner. (Having said that, I always leave a space cleaner than I found it, so you do not need to worry about that!) Since I am older than the usual au-pair age, I look for a mature relationship with you as the host family. I like to develop a friendship with you where we work as a team to bring up your children. With mutual understanding, good communication, sharing meals, laughter, and the challenges too!

I am looking for a host family specifically in Berlin, since I have a large community of friends there, and really love the city. But thank you to all those many job offers and requests from other German cities anyway - sorry I cannot accept!

I would be really happy to speak to you further if you think I might be suitable. Please get in touch and I look forward to hearing from you!!


Liebe Grüsse

Eloise

Experience

I stayed with my last host family for almost 2 years because we got on so well. It was a lovely experience, and during that time I began studying German which allowed me to get a job here in Zürich in a local co-working space. I am a creative person with a love of art, nature, animals, cooking, baking, and learning. I love to cook healthy vegetarian meals, teach your children to bake, and channel their creative spirits. I am also a lover of animals and would be very glad to help you take care of your pets as well.
