Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hi there, I am a single mother living in a beautiful area in the West of Amsterdam, The Netherlands. I am looking for a helpful aupair from April/May for at least six months (up to a year) for the 30 hours a week allowed. I have two (energetic) boys aged 4 almost 5 and 8, both are at school during a lot of the week.

We are a native English family but the kids were born here and are more Dutch than English at this point.

Best thing is to arrange a video or What'sApp chat and you can ask any questions you might have then. In the meantime I wish you luck on your aupair search.

Job Description

Light cleaning and house work 1-2 hours a day.
Supermarket shopping few times a week.
Entertaining the kids on the hours we agree during the week and on Saturday afternoon.
Cycling a bike (Urban Arrow) with the kids in it for pick up or school drop off a few times a week (so must be able to cycle confidently, the Urban Arrow is electronic and extremely easy to cycle if you can cycle a normal bike).

Main responsibilities would be to help at the busy breakfast time, dinner time, bed time, on Tuesday afternoons after school, and on the weekend at least on Saturday during the day. Because during the week the kids are at school, and there is not much to do during this time, I would love to be able to go out for two evenings a week which I would work into your schedule.

During the days of the week you would have a lot of time to study or explore the city, I would love some help with light cleaning, supermarket shopping and meal prep for 1-2 hours on the days we agree you work.

I really prefer someone who is already in the EU or without a visa requirement, but if you have a lot of qualifications and we really get along then we can always talk about it. Thank you.
