Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

We are a friendly & welcoming family with 3 lovely little boys and a little black cat! We are lucky enough to have maternal grandparents living locally and so we often have family coming and going.

We live in a small market town, Berkhamsted, that is on a mainline train, 40 mins to London Euston - there are lots of excellent language schools in London that are easily accessible.

Our home is a short walk to both the train station and the town centre where you will find a beautiful part of the Grand Union Canal and lots of amazing restaurants, cafes and pubs. We also live within walking distance of the amazing Ashridge Estate and National Trust which has world reknowned bluebell woods. So we are perfectly located for people that love to stroll in the countryside or walk down the high street and eat excellent food. There is also a thriving au pair / nanny community locally.

Job Description

Mon-Fri most of your time will be spent looking after Charlie (1) while we are at work and his brothers are at School / Pre-School.

Mum works part-time, mostly from home and work times are flexible so we can decide on a schedule together.

then picking up Henry & Arthur from school (which is walking distance from the house) & sitting them down for dinner (cooked by you if possible although I will often likely prepare things in advance)

Our boys are energetic and inquisitive & so require someone that is enthusiastic about exploring the world with them. We lead with empathy and so focus on building their character and developing their care for others. Our holdhold would suit someone that is creative and understanding.
