Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear prospect member of our house,

İstanbul and Summer house at beach, May- August.

this house requires 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 is kindergarten half day in May), Light coverage of kitchen, to cook and manage for you and my son, light house-tidying. I am vegetarian, tough my kid is not. Full day leave on Sunday.

June-July and August we will be next to seaside, at my moms house. So I would like the Aupair to go swimming with my son and have fun outdoors.

Other than these it would be based on honest conversations and trust building. This person should not have any problems with animals overall.

I hope we find our first nanny.
warm regards

In Istanbul, 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.
