Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Life in our house is fun! We are a close family unit that just needs a bit of help!

We are family of six living within 15 minutes of Edinburgh City Centre. The two eldest children, 7 & 5, are at the local primary school which is within walking distance. Our 4 year old is at a nursery three days a week and the littlest, who will be 2 in January stays at home. We are looking for an au pair to come and join our family and help support us in our daily lives. Both parents work predominantly from home, one of us part-time and the other sometimes working away.
