Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Originally translated from Deutsch
Hello dear au pair.
We are a multilingual (German, Spanish) family of 5 living in Darmstadt, a city between Frankfurt and Mannheim.

Darmstadt has about 150,000 inhabitants. We live about 2.5 km from the city center, about 15 minutes by bike. A bus stop is 200m away, buses also go to the city center from there.

Our current au pair has a permanent job in another German city in mind, which means that she will be leaving us two months earlier than planned.
Therefore we are looking for a new au pair at very short notice. Since we might be moving to the Netherlands to join our father in the summer, you should either only be looking for a job until the summer, or you might want to move with us to the South Holland region (probably The Hague).

We are Johanna (38) and Javier (39), our children are Pablo, 7.5 years old, Lucía, almost 5 years old and Mateo, 23 months old. In the mornings they are usually at school (until 2:30 p.m.) or in kindergarten (until 4 p.m.).

Since the father works 3 out of 4 weeks a month in the Netherlands, the mother is usually alone with the children during the week.

The father was born and raised in Spain, so the children are growing up bilingually German/Spanish. The father speaks Spanish as a mother tongue, fluent in English and French, he also speaks German and Italian. The mother speaks German (mother tongue) and fluent English, Spanish and Italian.

Job Description

Originally translated from Deutsch
Above all, we need support in accompanying the children with the afternoon activities, e.g. dropping off and picking up football practice. But you should also help with preparing breakfast/dinner, setting and clearing the table, tidying up toys and getting ready for bed.
We would also like you to take on some household chores, such as loading and unloading the dishwasher if necessary, vacuuming the dining room after dinner, or folding the children's dry laundry and putting it away in the closet.

Father is often at home on the weekends, which means they are usually at your free disposal. You can do something with us, but you don't have to. Evening babysitting is occasionally required but will be by arrangement.

We expect that you can get involved with the children and treat them lovingly. Our children are very active and have a lot of energy, so don't let that unsettle you. It would be best if you are also full of energy and in a good mood.

We would like you to go to the playground with them or accompany us on other small activities such as visiting a museum or swimming pool.

It is important that you can swim safely and ride a bike safely, as we cycle a lot. A bicycle is available for you.

We look forward to getting to know you :)

Family Description

Originally translated from Deutsch Our eldest son Pablo (7.5 years old) loves to play football and basketball and is also very athletic in other respects. He goes to soccer practice twice a week in the afternoon and to gymnastics once a week. He is very open and communicative, helpful and clever. He reads a lot, likes to build Lego, and also likes to play board games.
Our daughter Lucy (almost 5) loves to ride her bike, dance and do handicrafts. She is very creative and she always comes up with new things to paint or design. She goes to dance lessons once a week, swimming lessons once and gymnastics once a week.
Mateo (23 months) is also crazy about ball games. He also likes playing with Lego, his marble run and looking at books. He doesn't have any fixed appointments in the afternoon yet, but he loves going to the playground and is otherwise very active and lively. He likes to make the family laugh.

We like to take the children to zoos, the two older children also like to go to museums or amusement parks.

Javier works as an engineer in the Netherlands, Johanna works in the home office as a research assistant in the field of quality management. Normally once a month Johanna has to go to Dortmund for an appointment. This usually lasts a day.
