Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

We are a family of 3 - I am German, my husband is Indian, and our little baby boy was born in October 2020. We will need some childcare support as of end October, for at least 1 month, with possibility of extension if all goes well. Our son Viyan is very friendly and easy-going, but very active! He is very sweet. ?
We have lived in Switzerland for the last ~10 years. At home, we speak English with each other. If the au pair understands at least some German, it would be a plus. We are vegetarian and live in a suburb of Basel, close to the city center as well as to fields and forest. The city center is easily accessible by public transport.
This will be our first time hosting an au pair, and we are looking forward to the experience! We are looking for someone reliable, open-minded and easy-going who will bring a lot of passion and creativity to the task of taking care of our boy. We prefer someone who has experience with babies and toddlers, since this is quite different from taking care of older children.
We are mostly working in home office, so the au pair will rarely be completely on her own with the little one.
Before contacting us, please check current COVID related travel restrictions for Switzerland from your country and be sure you would actually be able to travel. Many thanks!

Job Description

We need an au pair to look after our baby during the day, i.e. change nappies, feeding, play/entertain him, go for walks, supervise him when awake, do his laundry, occasionally prepare his food.
We would also expect the au pair to help with small household tasks (loading/emptying dishwasher, laundry, some kitchen work, help with cooking, ...), but otherwise have a cleaning lady.
Actual working hours would be around 6 hours / 5 days a week, flexible depending on Viyan's awake time; usually during the day but occasionally in the evening so we can go out.

We live in a small town - more like a suburb of Basel - very close to the city center (around 20 minutes by public transport, or 10 minutes by car). It's a very quiet residential neighborhood. Shops are around 15 minutes walking distance. There is a lovely forest as well as open fields, farms and horse stables close to the house.
Our apartment is a duplex with a small garden. There is a large open living area. The au pair would stay in the lower floor, with an own room (13m2) and own bathroom. This floor has a separate entrance.
