Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hi, we live in the beautiful County Durham in England. We have 2 happy children, 9 & 10 years old who need care after school & alternate weekends. We have a lovely, large home with plenty of space for us all to relax together or have some private time. We live in a large town called Crook, about 20 minutes drive from Durham City and about 50 minutes from Newcastle Upon Tyne (a major city). We live near Durham Language College which you can attend.

We are a very caring and welcoming family. We have a very small dog called Chloe and 2 cats. My Mum and Sister also live very close by and we do a lot of family activities together, which you would be welcome to join.

We have had 4 au pairs for 1 year each since January 2017, and we have all been very happy. Our current au pair will return home to Italy in January 2021 and we are searching for another excellent au pair to join our family. You're welcome to speak with our current au pair as a reference for you.

We live in the North of England and there are several major cities close by including Newcastle, Durham, Middlesbrough, York and Sunderland. There are language classes in Durham, which is very close and colleges for you to attend if you'd like to study whilst here.

Newcastle has an international airport, making flying very easy.

*Please be sure that you have a passport and can enter our country legally before applying. Please understand that we will not send money or plane tickets to anyone - we will pay half of return travel at an agreed amount following the full stay term thanks :) *
