Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Greetings applicant, we are a healthy loving single parent household that would love to share our home and time with you. I know you will love the kids immediately, they are bright charming children. I do very well on my own but some assistance will certainly enrich our lives, and I think we have much to offer as well. We vacation in remote places few get to see and live in a beautiful place. I would love to communicate with you and see if we could be a fit for our Au Pair experience.

Job Description

I have the children about 12 days a month, the rest of the time they are with their mother. The children are 5 and 8. I would expect help with household duties and with the kids. For the kids I would like you to do some play time with them including out doors and time in parks. Some pick up and drop offs for school and after school activities. Driving would be a major asset, I can provide a vehicle most of the time. There are about 15 days a month that neither me or the children are home, that time would be completely yours, it’s not one day on one day off either, I typically leave for work for 7 to 10 days. There are times when my work schedule conflicts with my time with the kids, when this happens I need full child care for the children. It’s not often, but last year it happened 3 times, about 20 days total. I own a sail boat and have a remote camp on the B.C. coast, I would like you to come help with the kids on a couple vacations we will do there, and perhaps a vacation abroad, total vacation time each year is about 5 weeks. I can be very flexible with time off if there are things you want to do, we just need to communicate and plan. We are an English speaking household, my ethnicity is English/Belgian/Ukrainian/Italian, my children are half Vietnamese. The kids are in French immersions school, it would be a major asset for the applicant to be moderately familiar with French, my French is minimal. Vietnamese would also be an asset, they understand some from their mother but language is gift I would love to give them, I do speak some Vietnamese.
