Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

25/5/2021: we thinck to have found our Au Pair, contract in redaction

Hello, we are a family with 3 children who are 10, 8 and 4 years old. We are looking for an Au Pair who will stay at least 3 months between 28/8 and 23/12/21 (more is even better). The driving licence is mandatory!

After 5 Au Pairs since 3 years, we enjoy this exchange that allows us to have more time for our family, sport, hobbies, while sharing our cultures.

In exchange we offer to the au pair a nice atmosfeer at our home while we will do our best that the Au Pair feels good and is able to discover Belgium et improve his/jher French.

We live In Brain le Chateau, a town of 10.000 people, 20 to 75 minutes away from Brussel.
We speak French at home, and we speak fluently Dutch and English.

The language classes can be in Bruxelles, Rhode Saint Genese, Hal, or Uccle.

Job Description

These are the services the Au Pair will be kindly asked to perform:
Wake up the children, help them dress, drive the children to school, to the crèche, to the library, to sport, etc. Keep an eye on the children, clear away the toys, play with the children, read stories to the children, help them with their homework if possible, clean up their mischief if necessary, change the baby’s diapers.
Prepare some meals per week, help the children eat cleanly, put away the dishes after the meal, put the kitchen in order, do some grocery shopping, etc.

We have a cleaning lady who comes 7 hours per week and my husband and I also do our part of the housework.

We live in the countryside, and our 3children attend courses in a school that is located at 7 km from our house, with some rather steep hills in between. That's why a driver's licence is mandatory. A good physical condition is also recommended, because the au pair will frequently have to walk or bike to the nearest bus stop (without the children).

In Belgium, the au pair works 20 hours per week with Sunday as day off
Generally, our schedule is variable from one week to the other. We try to adapt the schedule to both need of the au pair and or work. There are language classes organised in several of the surrounding cities.

It is important for us that the children have a balanced diet, and that the children arrive at school and at sport activities in a timely manner. If there is any issue, we would like to talk about it to find a solution together.

We offer the custom salary of au pairs in Belgium, so 450€ per month. Additionally, we offer accommodation, meals, part of reimbursement of public transport in Belgium (excluding for tourism), ... and we will especially do our best to make the au pair feel comfortable and help her/him to fulfil her/his objectives in terms of language, culture, etc. we can make an effort for the salary of the au pair if she/he stays more than 2 months.
