Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hi, I’m Carina and this is my kiddo, Tobi! I can be a little quiet at first, but as we get to know each other, I am very friendly and open-minded, and Tobi is the happiest, cuddliest kid you’ll ever meet. I am hoping to find someone to help Tobi learn German (which only a few members of my family speak). I and most of my family and friends only speak English so you would still have lots of exposure to it the rest of the time. The level of involvement with the wider family and my friends is up to you, but I’m open to you being as integrated into our lives as you feel comfortable with! :)

We live just off the main road in a town that has bus/train connections into larger cities like Toronto. We are also close to Barrie (a friendly college town) as well as things outdoor amenities like conservation areas and local beaches. I lived in Toronto for a long time, so I am very familiar with it and also visit often to see friends. The town we live in has grown larger over the past years but still feels very much like a smaller town with many independent stores/restaurants and community activities. There is also a large local library and recreation centre with a variety of classes and fitness facilities.

I am a single parent by choice, so Tobi does not have an “other” parent or home that he goes to.

We eat meat and dairy but often eat vegetarian meals as well and are open to hosting a vegetarian or vegan au pair.

All of the adults in the extended family are fully vaccinated against covid, and the children will be once they are eligible. You would need to be vaccinated to live with us (for covid and other routine vaccinations).

Job Description

The only task I would need from you is childcare while I am working, with a focus on speaking German with Tobi so that he will learn the language. Usually that would mean being with him from roughly 7:30-4:30 on weekdays from September to June. (Start and end times are tentative depending on outside factors like traffic and I am open to discussing alternative childcare 1-2 days per week depending on what you would prefer.)

Pocket money is government regulated and would be based on the Ontario standard of $14.25/hour.
