Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear Au Pair,

If you are looking for a European family with lots of interests and hobbies, look no further! We are a German-Italian family of four. We live in Essen, a city in the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region.

Our kids, a 6 year old girl and a 2 year old boy, are growing in a completely bilingual household (Italian and German). We moved from the Netherlands a few months ago, where we have had fantastic experiences with au-pairs for the last four years.

We are looking for a caring and responsible au-pair to join us in this new German adventure. We will be following and supporting you for anything you will need for your stay with us.

Job Description

The most important thing we want you to do is to give your love and enthusiasm to our children. Furthermore, we want you to be happy and independent and to enrich our family with your personality and hobbies. We want you to be part of our family and we would like you and our children to have lots of fun together.

After a busy day at school and daycare, we would like our children to have a safe, nurturing and stable environment at home with place for creativity and time to explore the outside world. You will have quite some responsibilities and we expect you to be proactive, caring and carefully watching and listening to what is needed, but we will guide you and see that you can profit as much as possible from your stay here in Germany.

Elena will be at school five days a week and Jacopo at daycare, whereas Marco and Teresa will each work
4 days/week. As Marco's work is in the Netherlands he will only be at home from Thursday evening to Monday morning.
We would like you to bring Elena and/or Jacopo to school/daycare in the morning, and to pick her and/or Jacopo up from school/daycare in the afternoon and look after them until Teresa is back home from work.

It would be nice if you could also help with some light housework.

There will be plenty of time for you to enjoy life in Germany and the ability to learn German (and/or English, Italian).
