Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear .... ,

Welcome to our home in the Netherlands, in Amsterdam! We are looking forward to sharing our home and life for you for a year. We are sure you will love our house, children and the city. My husband has lived in Italy for a year and learned to speak the language very well, we actually married there, and now we visit friends there often. We felt that perhaps it would be nice to combine our search for help in the care for our children with me and the children learning the Italian language as well. So although a basic understanding of English would be appreciated, we would very much like you to speak Italian with the children and also with me and my husband :-)
Besides feeling at home in our house (while we will also respect each others privacy of course), we also hope you will enjoy staying in a foreign country for a year and we think you'll have ample opportunity to explore the country and the city we live in.

Hope to meet you soon! Best wishes, the family

Job Description

When you arrive in our home, hopefully in august of 2020, you will be our third Italian aupair. We are looking for help with the care for our children and also a bit in (light) housekeeping. The care will be divided over us as parents, the school, daycare, grandparents and hopefully you! A nice Italian women with some experience in the care for children and also with joy in care for children, enthusiastic, and not afraid to get her hands dirty during play or work once in a while. Our children are used to an Italian aupair, but the two oldest are not really able to speak the language yet, the little boy though can understand as much dutch as italian, since he has known the aupair for most of his life :-)
We offer accommodation in our house in the center of Amsterdam, and also at least two free days a week, which days exactly are to be determined together and can vary from week to week.
Some of the days the care will only extend to one or two ours of babysitting (on weekends for instance), other (week) days we will need you to take the children to school or daycare, do some errands, fold laundry, empty the dishwasher, tidy the children's playroom and sleeping rooms etc. And then pick them up from school/daycare and play with them, or take the oldest to an after school activities. It is also possible that, on days that I am free, I'll need to run an errand (with one or two of the children) and we ask you to stay with the other(s). Sometimes we will go out for a bite to eat with the two of us and we'll ask you to stay home when children are sleeping. All in all it won't extend more than 30 hours a week.

After experiencing aupairs in our home for the last two and a half years, we now know that we very much appreciate a bit of flexibility in the attitude of the aupair. We do not ask very difficult hours, for instance mornings and evenings with the children are usually done by us parents (except when we have plans in the evening). So most days, except Thursday, you can sleep inn if you like. We do ask a proactive attitute when for instance coming accros a full dishwasher or a full washing machine, please empty those and fould the clothes. We have a seperate cleaning lady that comes for the real heavy cleaning so the aupair does not have to do that (except for her own floor).

Something that might be difficult is that communication with the children is still difficult in Italian. We are working on finding a italian tutor as well to give us lessons. We of course would appreciate it if the aupair would also try to learn the children more italian.
