Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Originally translated from Deutsch
Dear AuPair,

We live in a nice area, about 100m from Lake Constance. Since I have been working again since October 2017, I need support with childcare, in the household and with the care of our dog. We already have Aupair experience, Natalia from Ukraine and Elena from Russia were with us for 8 and 10 months respectively. Afterwards Miaro from Madagascar helped us, she was with us until 05/2020. We are still in contact with our former au pair, Miaro wanted to stay in Germany after her au pair, we helped her find a job.
We are a very open relaxed family consisting of 5 people. I, Geraldine, 44 years old, Jörn 46 years old, Linus 10 years old, Emily 8 years old and Niklas now 4 years old.

Why are we looking for an AuPair?
This would be our fourth au pair experience. Since Jörn works in Switzerland and is absent during the week and since I work again, we need support with childcare and during the daily routine of everyday life.

Our small town has about 8000 inhabitants, there is everything we need. Everything is easily accessible on foot, the kindergarten, the school, the supermarket. We have a good cultural offer, there is a music school, cinema in the nearest town, a beach ...
During the summer we spend a lot of time in our beautiful large garden, relax, play or we are at the lake. During the winter we go skiing and sledding, we live near the Alps, it takes about 1 hour by car to the next ski resort. We are quite relaxed, the children are loving and the 2 older ones are often busy alone.
We are pleased to meet you.

What do we offer, what does the accommodation look like;
We live in the rural area close to Lake Constance. The instead is called Langenargen. The area is very pretty and offers many things to do, nature is great and ideal for someone who likes to do outdoor sports and a nice experience. In summer we go swimming in the lake almost every day, the lake is only 100m from our house, we love cycling and inline skating. In autumn the area is particularly pretty with the leaves turning brown, the tourists are easing. In winter we go skiing and tobogganing, the Alps are not further away, approx. 1 hour by car. Furthermore there is a good cultural offer (Bregenz Festival etc).
The larger cities of Friedrichshafen (80,000 inhabitants) and Lindau are about 10 km away.
We are well equipped with bikes, there are many great things to look at.
We live in a large house with a garden. We live close to the lake (100m away). You will have your own room with your own sink. We share a bath. We have a big garden.

Job Description

Originally translated from Deutsch
We are currently looking for an au pair from September 2020 for 2-6 months

What do we expect:
The au pair should have experience in childcare, and should also have experience with dogs. It should speak either English or French fluently or basic knowledge of the German language or good knowledge of the German language so that good communication is possible right from the start.
We expect an open aupair, reliability is important. We are expecting someone who loves children and likes to take care of them from the heart. Someone who will build a good relationship with all 3 children so that they are well looked after while I work, a kind of mother substitute. Furthermore, we would like someone who has previously looked after smaller children, for example their own siblings, relatives or has already worked as an au pair.
For us, taking care of the children means meeting their needs, that means going to the playground together, cuddling, holding Niklas in our arms ...

What we don't want:
We don't want a smoker. We prefer a non-vegetarian because we also eat sausage and meat with meals.

Our normal routine:
I work part time (25 hours a week).
I will get up at 6:30 am and drive to work at 7:00 am. I will work until 5 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays, i.e. be at home around 5:30 p.m. and work until 1 p.m. on Thursdays, i.e. be home at 2pm.
Your responsibility would be to wake Emily and Linus at 7:00 am, make them breakfast, make sure they get dressed - and send them both to school.
Then you should dress Niklas and take him to kindergarten. During my absence, you would take care of the children.
I want you to cook a warm lunch for the kids when they get out of school (we have loads of simple cooking dishes that the kids love, nothing particularly difficult).

During my absence, it would be nice if you could help around the house
