Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

! We have already found our au pair. Thank you for your interest. !

Dear Au Pair,

we (Christa, Simon, Dominik, Magdalena), a young family with 2 small children from the outskirts of Munich, are looking for an au pair who will support us mainly with childcare and who will also bring some of their history, culture and food into our midst as part of our family.
It is very important for us that it is a win-win-win situation for the au pair, our children and us.

We live in a beautiful, spacious house with a large garden on the outskirts of the village of Großhartpenning. This village is 3 km away from the next bigger town Holzkirchen (approx. 17,000 inhabitants, train station, shopping facilities). An on-demand bus goes there. However, a driving licence is necessary to pick up the children from the kindergarten.

Our village is located in the foothills of the Alps, a popular holiday region. Both the nearby Bavarian Alps and the big city of Munich can be reached in about 30-40 minutes by train or car. There are several beautiful bathing lakes nearby. The beautiful landscape also invites you to go for walks, bike tours and (in winter) to use the cross-country skiing trail.

Others say about us that we are warm and friendly. But you can see that for yourself.
Feel free to contact us, we are looking forward to get in touch with you and maybe we will fit together :)

Best regards
Christa and Simon

Family Description

Christa, the mum:
36 years old, enthusiastic guitar player is a teacher at a school for children with special needs
Simon, the dad:
36 years old, enthusiastic mountaineer and skier. Has a master's degree in political science and works as a science and innovation manager for a large research organisation.
4 years old, kindergarten child and enthusiastic train fan.
2 years old as of January, kindergarten child and enthusiastic about everything
Cleo, the cat:

We are an uncomplicated and cosmopolitan family and interested in people, cultures and ways of life all over the world. We used to like to travel a lot. Since we became parents, however, this has become more difficult.
We spend a lot of time at home with the children playing, doing handicrafts, singing and enjoy using our beautiful garden. Dominik and Magdalena like to ride their bikes and scooters. We also go on day trips, e.g. to the mountains, to the zoo or to the swimming lake. We also often visit the grandparents who live very close to us.

Our mother tongue is German, we both speak fluent English. From our travels we still have some basic knowledge of Spanish, Italian and Russian, which we would like to improve further.

A few words about us and the things that are important to us with people:
We are socially very committed people and like to get involved with clubs and community life in our town. Simon is also a member of the town council. We are usually very sociable and like to have guests at our house or visit friends and family. We like to have barbecues, bonfires or just nice get-togethers. So we would be happy if you like that too and have fun doing it.

We are Catholic, but we don't live our religion very actively and are generally very liberal. Tolerance is very important to us and we are curious and open to new things. We well you, if this is also important for you (while we don't care what religion you are).
