Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Originally translated from Français
Hello dear Au Pair,
We are a French family living near Orleans, a town on the Loire, in a small village called Fay-aux-Loges. We live in a house by the Canal, in the town center. We are an hour from Paris by train.
We have three children: two little girls aged 2 and 3 and their 12 year old big brother who is not there all the time.
We are Christians (Catholic for me and Orthodox for my husband) without necessarily going to church every Sunday ...;) My husband is a former soldier of the Foreign Legion, he is of Russian origin. He is retired, and still works a little at the Ministry of Justice, in Orléans. I am a mathematics teacher in Orléans as well, in higher education.

The mission: we are looking for an autonomous and independent person, native English speaker, who will be able to occupy our daughters, in English only, so that they acquire this new mother tongue. Your "presence" hours will therefore be: from 4 pm to 7 pm from Monday to Friday and throughout the day during the weekends. The rest of the time, you have your free days! ;) In addition, it is with pleasure that I will help you improve your French if you wish!
You will be accommodated in a small new garden studio (shower room and kitchen), but will be able to share our meals regularly, which will allow us to respect our respective privacy. We can leave you a car.
Ultimately, we are not looking for someone who lives with us, but for someone who comes to "spend time" with us, to share with us certain moments of our daily life. By "working" we mean keeping our little girls busy with games, various activities and reading. You will therefore not have to take care of them, but only to occupy them, to speak English ...;)

Fay-aux-Loges is a small village, located 15 km from Orléans, where the language faculty is located (for your lessons if you want to take French lessons) and everything you can find in a big city ...
To reach Orléans, either we take you by car (15 min) when we go ourselves, or you can take a bus (40 min) but there are only 3 passages per day (the bus stop is 100 meters from the house), or you can take one of our cars if you have the permit.
We are also 55 minutes from Paris by train, if you want to spend a few days in Paris, you can worry free ...;)

Finally, we want to trust you and will accept that you do not do "like us", beyond learning English, we want to leave you this space to do "your way" in accordance with the main principles education. We also want you to be free to bring your culture, different from ours, your lifestyle, your culinary habits, different from ours.

We would like you to allow our girls to discover things that are not in our obvious framework or in our habits, that you finally bring them a little of yourself… Quite simply… :) [### ] We live in a small house of 150 m², so we often meet ...;)
We have a kitchen open to a living room, five bedrooms, an office, a playroom, two bathrooms.
You will be accommodated in a small studio of 11 square meters, with a bathroom and a small kitchen just for you, if you sometimes want to isolate yourself to eat quiet ...;)
Otherwise when my husband is not there (he works regularly at night and has extended hours), it will be with pleasure that you can have lunch and dinner with us, which will allow us to keep some privacy as a family. It's not easy to share your daily life with a "foreigner". It is for this reason that we are not looking for an au pair who will live at home like one of our children, but rather an already autonomous and independent person who comes to "work" at home as an employee or a tutor.
The garden is about 1300 m² and overlooks the Orleans canal. You will therefore be accommodated "temporarily" in a small wooden garden studio (brand new) which will be ready at the end of September. Our goal for next year is to acquire a small home for you not far from the house, normally a little further down the same street.
We offer you a sum of 100 euros per week of pocket money, transferred to your bank account each week.
We will take out insurance for you that will fully cover you during your stay with us.
Although sensitive to the preservation of the environment, to recycling, to reducing waste, we are not vegetarians, but will accept you whatever your diet, your food intolerances and your ethics :)

Job Description

Originally translated from Français
Durant les journées en semaine, la grande est à l'école et la petite chez sa nourrice.
On les y emmène le matin vers 7h30 et on les ramène vers 16h, les lundi, mardi, jeudi et vendredi.
Les mercredis, elles restent à la maison, avec leur Papa quand il ne travaille pas, ou avec moi quand je ne travaille pas.
Les samedis et dimanches elles sont à la maison.
Dans une journée classique passée à la maison, nous faisons une petite balade le matin, au bord du canal, ou vers les différentes aires de jeux, après le petit-déjeuner. Ensuite nous déjeunons puis elles font la sieste l'après-midi, elles goûtent et vers 18h30 c'est l'heure du bain, nous dînons et elles vont au lit vers 19h30. Nous aimons bien les emmener régulièrement à la piscine. En été, la piscine du village est ouverte tous les jours, et nous y allons très régulièrement.
Nous avons une vie plutôt bien réglée, et on préfère le calme de la campagne, donc si vous aimez faire la fête et sortir tous les soirs, vous pourrez, mais sans nous... ;)
PS : Nous attendons une troisième petite fille pour octobre 2020 mais vous n'aurez pas à vous en occuper, rassurez-vous ! :)

Nous recherchons un jeune au pair qui parle déjà le français assez bien, c'est-à-dire qui n'a pas besoin de parler français toute la journée avec nous pour apprendre notre langue : en fait, nous cherchons un au pair pour que nos deux filles apprennent une deuxième langue maternelle : l'anglais...
Nous souhaitons donc trouver quelqu'un d'attentionné et de prévenant, d'extrêmement gentil, qui saura les occuper, par des lectures, des jeux, des chansons, des comptines, des petites activités adaptées à leur âge, de la pâte à modeler, de la peinture, des activités manuelles, de la piscine (il y en a pas mal dans les environs), des activités de plein air, ou tout ce que vous voulez, mais uniquement en anglais !
Tout ce que nous souhaitons, c'est que notre "au pair" parle anglais à la maison lorsque les enfants sont là... :)

Par contre, si vous avez déjà un niveau de français et que vous souhaitez le perfectionner, vous pourrez évidemment parler en français avec nous, avec plaisir, quand les petites ne seront pas là (quand elles sont chez leur nourrice, à l'école ou bien quand elles dorment...).
Aucune tâche ménagère ne vous sera demandée, pas de corvée non plus, on vous demandera juste de parler en anglais à la maison quand les petites sont là, c'est tout... :)
Vos horaires de "travail" seront donc essentiellement le weekend du matin au soir et en semaine un peu le matin, et un peu le soir, et le mercredi. Vous aurez donc toutes vos journées libres jusqu'à 16h, sauf les mercredis, pendant les vacances scolaires et quelques journées dans l'année.
Il se peut que certains matins, on vous demande de déposer la grande à l'école à 9h, c'est à environ 10 minutes à pied en marchant lentement... ;)
Pendant les vacances scolaires, on aura besoin de vous un peu tous les jours... Nous serons très souvent là, donc vous ne serez quasiment jamais seule à la maison, ne vous inquiétez pas.
Vous êtes invitée à venir avec nous durant les vacances quand nous partons.
On vous accueille dès le mois de juillet 2020, soit juste pour un mois soit pour beaucoup plus longtemps si vous vous plaisez chez nous ! On acceptera de changer régulièrement de personnes si besoin, ce n'est donc pas gênant si vous restez juste un mois ou deux.

Bref, on espère vous rencontrer bientôt !! :)
