Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

We have recently relocated from New York City, where we both run businesses. NYC is 2 hours away by car or there is a train station 20 minutes away in a nearby town. We live on a 170 acre property with rolling fields, ponds, streams, and lots of wildlife. We have a pool and hiking trails. The town that we live in is very small, but we have grocery stores and farm stands within minutes of our house. The house itself is very private, set down a long driveway, and it is peaceful and quiet. However, there are several quaint villages and towns near us, and the capital of New York, Albany is only 45 minutes away. We are near several colleges including Bard College and Vassar. We are also near lots of parks and ski resorts. We are starting the kids in a new school in September 2021, which is 30 minutes away and as one of us is building a new business up here, I will need help with the kids.

Job Description

I am looking for someone with excellent driving skills to drop off and pick up my children from school, which is a 30 minute drive from our home. Outside of that time, someone who enjoys country living and can take them for hikes on our property, or even take them skiing in the winter.
Occasionally both my husband and me will have to travel to the city for work, and we will stay overnight. Thus we need an au pair who is comfortable staying overnight alone with the kids and the dog.
At home, someone who can help me with dinner (not every night, but helping to chop vegetables or prepping lunch/dinner for the kids would be helpful)
My kids are bilingual (husband is French-born) and the most important thing is someone who can help them further their fluency in French by conversing with them regularly. I do not speak French, only English. When we are together as a family, we speak English. The kids need more exposure to French.
It's a very rural area, so this job would be best suited for someone who LOVES the outdoors, who maybe appreciates more quiet time. While there are great towns nearby and lots of colleges, the house itself is rather secluded.

Right now, we have an upstairs loft, fully private loft in our house with a full bathroom. However, we are looking into putting a Tiny House or Airstream on our property as a guest house that would have its own bath and kitchen, and offer more privacy.
