Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear prospect member of our house,

this house requires Turkish language, attention to children pedagogy, affection, listening and learning about Waldorf system, a lot of outdoors with the child, a real relationship. I never had help with my son, I raised him so I am looking for someone to cover as much as possible for me.

There are so many things to write about when one needs to explain herself so here is just a summary.

I am a trainer and consultant so I have some days as work and some days as free. On my free days, you are off too. I can not determine these now.

I would expect full attention to my son (He will begin kindergarten half day), Full coverage of kitchen, to cook and manage for you and my son, light house-tidying.I am vegetarian, tough my kid is not. He is with his daddy every Sunday.

I wouldn't like someone to leave their own small children and also someone with a lot of family drama. Other than these it would be based on honest conversations and trust building.

I hope we find our first nanny.
warm regards

Au pair guest will have her own room with a bed and a closet. Our house has 3 bedrooms and a living room, 2nd for in an apartment. There is wi-fi and weekly cleaning. We don't have a TV, because I dont like TV and my son has 0-zero screen time in his life. Groceries are all organic and they are distributed to us weekly from the organic market. House has bus and metro lines closely. There are also 3 playgrounds around the house.

It is in a popular, high-end neighborhood with regular-not especially beautiful buildings. It is very close to the business district, yet the neighborhood has a real neighborhood feeling to it. It is really in the official center of Istanbul.
