Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Originally translated from Deutsch
Dear au pair
Thank you for your interest in our ad.
We are a loving family with three children. The mother works as a biomedical analyst in a laboratory and the father works as an engineer in computer science.
We would like to have an au pair so that our children can learn to speak one or the other word of their native language in addition to getting to know another culture. Likewise our children wish that they are more at home and less at day care. That's why we have been an Au Pair with us in the family since August 2019 and so far had good experiences. Since our children are well versed in language and like to speak a lot, you can certainly benefit a lot from our children when learning the German language.
We live in a detached house in the rural Kappel in the canton of Solothurn. Kappel is located on Jurasüdfuss near Olten and is very well connected by public transport. Approximately 300m away is the next bus line and about 1000m away the train line to Olten. From Kappel, the major cities of Bern, Basel, Lucerne and Zurich can be reached in about 60 minutes by public transport. This also allows you to easily visit a language school in these major cities or in the nearby smaller towns of Olten, Aarau or Solothurn.
So, now we hope that you have been able to learn a little bit more about us with this letter, the information below and the supplementary photos of our family and we look forward to meeting you in person.
Kind regards
Your Swiss host family

Job Description

Originally translated from Deutsch
As an au pair you can expect an exciting and varied family life with a simple family. On Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, we depend on your childcare support. These days, you would attract the two boys, have breakfast with them, brush their teeth, and make sure they are in time at kindergarten or at school. The rest of the morning you have free. You have to warm up the meals for the boys on these days or, if necessary, prepare them fresh. After lunch, pick up our daughter at the nearby day care center. If the boys do not have to go to kindergarten or school in the afternoon, you spend the time with all three children in and around the house. Then you make, play, sing, bake, etc. you with them. Because you are loving, creative, independent and think along. In the evening we parents will be back home before dinner. That would be so rough your daily routine on the four days. Together with the family you help us with light house and garden work, e.g. when harvesting fruits or berries, watering the garden, keeping the vacuum cleaner, living room, kitchen, bathroom, entrance etc. clean. Together with the children you put the toys together at the end of the day.
We value self-employment, honesty, communication, reliability and trust. We are uncomplicated, flexible, capable of criticizing and very open to new things. We expect that from you as an Au Pair. As an au pair you have to like dealing with children. In addition you must be able to keep calm even in hectic situations and be resilient. We also expect you to be motivated with the children during childcare and have meaningful employment. For a family connection we are very open and would like to see you, if you wish, as a 6th family member. Of course you can accompany us on the weekend excursions and also spend the holidays with us, if you want. We will also assist you in settling in our family and social environment. We promise you that we will always be available for you and accompany you where necessary.
