Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

We are a German / American Family living in the northern part of Hamburg. Both English and German are spoken in our house. We have three kids, 6, 4 years and 8 months. 2 super sweet girls and a baby boy trying to keep up:)
This is our second aupair experience (looking to create another great experience), so we are very excited to have somebody integrate into our family and wish for someone to naturally fit in more as a family member than a guest. We want you to feel well in our house and make it your home while you are here as much as we want to be ourselves around you as we always are. Our kids are very outgoing and connect very fast to people that pay them some attention, so we are sure it will be easy for you to win their hearts.

Job Description

As mentioned above, we are looking for somebody to integrate into the family and be willing to jump in and help when needed. The exact hours worked are not that important for us (for sure you will have enough free time!!) it's more the willingness to be flexible and also sometimes spontaneous.

Not every day will be the same but here are the challenges we would be looking for support:
- on some days drop off and /or pick up the kids from daycare around 2/3 pm
- play with kids after day care, best outside
- prepare sometimes meals for kids
- laundry for kids or sometimes groceries
- take the kids to after daycare activities
- cleaning up and putting things away but detailed house cleaning is not expected

In general, the weekends would be free, except for a few weekends that we would plan to get away and leave the kids behind, but then certainly other days are free. It's possible and desired to join us for vacation.

We are looking for someone that can speak English or German.

You will have access to our family Babboe bike (cargo E-bike) to help get around.

Family Description

We are two working parents, Dad is American, Mom is German. Both of us basically had very little free time within the last six years which we want to change. Especially since the baby is here we need some help. We are looking to improve quality time as a couple by also taking some time only for us (sometimes dinner after work or leaving once in a while for a full weekend without kids).

It's always turbulent in this house and never boring. Both girls are very outgoing, talk to every stranger and are very curious. They both love to climb, jump, run, play in puddles, arts and crafts, be outside in our backyard, and of course, playgrounds and swimming are a hit, just as for every kid :) . Both girls are currently in the daycare until 2 or 3 pm, Yannik the 8 month old boy is still at home.

The younger girl (4) - cuddly, lovable, with a hidden temper. She loves her dolls, she can sort for hours, not very complicated except when it comes to eating. She is in a phase that she wants to do everything alone and don't dare to try and help her ;)

The older girl (6) - there are not many boring moments with her, she is very outgoing and adventurous, talks to everybody, and stops to pet every dog she sees on walks. She loves to do arts and crafts, ride her bike, swim and play games.

Baby Boy (8 months) - has just started crawling all around and wants to explore it all. But a very chilled guy that likes to smile, only nights are tough for mummy ;)

We also have two bunnies in the garden to cuddle with, so you should not have a fur allergy.

We live in a single-family house, with 4 bedrooms (3 upstairs and 1 downstairs). You would have the downstairs bedroom with a separate bathroom directly across the hall. Wifi is available.

Our house is located about 25 minutes car drive to the city center of Hamburg. Within 10 minutes walking, there is a train station (s-bahn) that also takes you directly to the city center. Even though quite central, the house is in walking distance to great nature, the Alsterlauf (a small river through beautiful countryside to go running or walking with the kids), forests, grocery stores, restaurants, pharmacy etc.
