Welcome Letter to the Au Pair


I am Meike and this is our family situation: We are a family of three: Leigh is 44, I am 36 and Jonah was born on 08.09.2018. Leigh is Australian, Jonah and I are German. We met in Australia during my university degree and started our life together in Great Britain where we lived for 5 years before we chose to relocate to this wonderfull place in the Black Forest in Germany called Hinterzarten in 2014.

Leigh is a teacher currently working as a carer for a boys group in a boarding school close by and I am working in a local company in the field of quality management. ... and Jonah is currently unemployed too busy growing up :)

When we have time we love to do sports (especially Leigh, he is a physical education teacher), being in the outdoors, traveling the world, cooking, eating and a lot of other things. Leigh is into music, he plays the piano and I like crafting.

Leigh and I are both back at work after parent time and we are looking for you to look after our little man Jonah from end of August 2020 on (he will turn 2 years then). We are looking forward to meet you and to welcome you in our family and would like you to enjoy the time here and accompany Jonah during the third year of his life. We are lloking for someone to stay between 6-11 months.

Job Description

Your task will be to look after and play with Jonah while we are at work. This time will be mostly on weekdays from the time Leigh leaves the house around 11:00 am untill I return from work. Sometimes we would like you to babysit in the evenings. We do not expect you to do much house work, just cleaning up after yourself and Jonah.

It would be great if you know some English, as our family language is German and English, we are raising Jonah bilingual.

We are happy and easy going people who like being active and you are welcome to join in all the fun things we do and dscover here! Hinterzarten is a great place for outdoor activities like mountain biking, skiing, swimming in lakes, camping, hiking...but you are also not far from the next two bigger towns, Titisee-Neustadt and Freiburg which offer plenty of opportunity for German classes and cultural experiances. Within an hour you can reach France and Switzerland, so you have plenty of oportunity to discover Europe.
