Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear au pair

We are a warm and loving, lively and very busy family of four, living in the sweet little town of Toddington in Bedfordshire. It is a lovely community here, with lots going on, plenty of nice shops, cafes and pubs, beauty salons and a good library. We can be in central London in less than an hour by train and by car, and we could offer you the use of a car while you are with us if you drive.

We’re close to bigger towns including Dunstable, Luton, Milton Keynes and Bedford, all with lots going on and much to offer. Despite being in the heart of all this, we feel very peaceful, at the top of a little hill, with stunning views across fields (see our pictures) and lovely places to go walking, country pubs and beautiful woods.

We think you would love living here with us. We have lots of fun and you’d have plenty of time during the day when the kids are at school to do your own thing/study etc.

Job Description

Kitty and Anthony are both opera singers, so our job and our schedules are unconventional and unpredictable. When you come to us, Anthony will be away singing in Scotland for a lot of the time, and then in Germany. Kitty will be here living at home, but travelling to London every day to rehearse, and then touring around England performing.

We need someone very responsible and experienced with childcare, who can be trusted to take sole charge of the children, even occasionally overnight, though not often. We need someone who can be flexible because no two weeks will ever be the same schedule with us.

We would need you to help getting ready for school and dropping off in the morning, then collect Lulu from school at 3pm every day (school is 10 minutes walk from our house)

We need someone who can prepare healthy and yummy meals in the evening, and packed lunches in the morning, help a little bit with homework, and play with Lulu. Although this is a great job for someone who wants to study or explore during the day, we do want someone who loves children and really wants to be here and enjoy time with them. Ideally we need you to be able to have them in the day time if they are sick and can’t go to school, but we can talk about that if you have plans to study.

Light housework will be necessary- just children’s laundry and clearing up after meals. We have a cleaner for the rest of the housework.

We will need you to work some weekends, taking the children to do fun things like swimming etc, but we can tell you in advance when they will be and it won’t be every weekend.

We really want to find someone who is absolutely fluent in English, preferably whose native language is English, so that our children feel totally confident and able to express their needs and feelings.
