Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

--IMENE FROM FRANCE HAS BEEN HIRED

THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR INTEREST
UNTIL NEXT TIME
CHEERS



I am a NEONATAL AND PAEDIATRIC NURSE, I am looking for my au pair number 7!

I have had great experiences with au pair from Spain for the last five years!! and they have all been lovely.
Our Current Au pair is finishing 2 years in june 2020!! and returning to Spain AFTER 2 YEARS WITH US as she has been accepted in a college and she is ready to return to Spain for educational purpose. All our au pairs have become family friends, and visit us in England on their holidays.

SO WE NEED to find someone as nice as OUR PREVIOUS AU PARS to come look after our boys.
William is 13 yrs old and going to High school.
CHRISTOPHER IS 4 YEARS OLD AND IS IN NURSERY BUT STARTS SCHOOL IN SEPTEMBER 2020

I work shift pattern so I am home a lot and so you are never alone for many days with the children.

We urgently are looking for an au pair to come in in JUNE /JULT 2020.

My big boy 13years old does not require much just breakfast in the morning and supervising him to get ready for school.
You do not need to take him to school as he is driven to school.

In the evening he will need supervision for homework after school and lots of fun time including learning Spanish!

Mostly you will be looking after the baby 4yrs in the week when both parents are at work in the day. Because I work in a hospital I do not work five days a work from 9am to 5pm no I work shifts

So there are days that I am at home in the week. You will be expected to work some weekends where you will be home with the two boys but my husband will also be at home to help you. However we try to give the weekend off mostly in the week.

On weekends my husband work 2weekend in a month so you will have the opportunity to get two weekends off mostly.

These can be taken as Friday and Saturday// or Saturday and Sunday// or Sunday and Monday /// or it can be two days in the week. IT ALL DEPENDS ON MY ROTA FOR WORK BUT I REALLY TRY HARD AND MAKE SURE THE AU PAIR GETS MOST OF THE WEEKENDS OFF.

otherwise when I am at home Monday to Friday you can also get your rest days off in the week, but we plan week from week so everyone knows what they are doing.

anyway if you are interested please let me know as soon as possible
you will also be able to speak with my previous au pairs for any questions you may want to ask regarding my family
have a look at my pictures
thank you for reading my intro ...looking forward to answer any questions you may have

i am looking for someone SERIOUS WHOS HAS EXPERIENCE LOOOKING AFTER CHILDREN AND LOOKING AFTER THE HOUSE

i am looking for someone NICE, YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO SHOUT AT THE CHILDREN SO MUST PRACTICE GOOD BEHAVIOUR WHEN DISCIPLINIGN A CHILD. you must remain smiling and have lots of patience.

PERSONAL HYGIENE IS VERY IMPORTAT TAKING REGULAR SHOWERS EVERY DAY AND BRUSHING YOUR TEETH
…... this teaches children good hygiene skills. I had an au pair who smelt because they did not shower and their teeth smelt vey badly because they did not brush their teeth everyday so i had to ask them to leave. Also keeping your room smell free is important wash your beddings please. we provide you with everything you need, you are welcomed to come with us on holiday as a family or you can go for holiday back home when we have a family holiday. Its up to you.
We live 50 minutes away from Stanstead airport and usually the flights are cheap so all my au pairs are able to arrange short trips back home for important days that they wish to be with family. However this needs early agreement and arrangement. So far it has never been an issue.

DRESS CODE IS VERY IMPORTANT AROUND AND IN THE HOUSE
I ASK MY AU PAIRS TO DRESS RESPECTFULLY AND ACCORDINGLY, DRESS DECENTLY DONT WALK AROUND THE HOUSE SCANTY DRESSED OR IN YOUR PAJAMAS THIS IS FOR FEMALE AND MALE AU PAIRS BOTH ALIKE. THANK YOU

I am sad to lose my au pair but she is going back to school and we have made friends with her family, her mother was able to visit us in England for two weeks two different times and we have become very close. However she now needs to go back to school in spain. She arrived when she was 18 yrs old.

Thank you for reading.
