Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear au-pair,

We are family of four. Two girls, ages 8 and 6.
Both girls go to school 3x week 9-5pm and 2x week 9-1pm.

The au-pair we are looking for should like spending time with kids, do girly things and should not be afraid to get messy doing art works, like the outdoors (cycling , swimming, beach time, but also must be happy spending time indoors in the wet weather and happy to do fun creative activities).

The ideal aupair should be confident with the kids and should be keen to learn new things and discover different cultures. Should either come from a family where there were kids around or have sound experience babysitting and should be enthusiastic spending time with children in the particular age group.
We also have a small cockapo dog (3yo) so the ideal candidate must like dogs and ideally should have own experience with owning /growing up with pets.

Food in our family is important, we like to experiment, cook and explore different tastes so, anyone who has passion for food would be great too, particularly as the kids are just typical little fussy eaters so the more food loving influence the better. We are not afraid of vegetarian cooking. A reasonable understanding of English is a must, with the rest we are happy to help and contribute towards /or pay for English classes. Mastering a foreign language then becomes easier.

We are however looking for a Czech speaking au pair who will persist with the Czech language when speaking to the children who typically just respond in English.

We live in a Dutch town called Alkmaar, north of Amsterdam in a historic city centre by a canal with picturesque views.

It should be noted that we are not looking to employ someone for their main source of income, we are looking for someone who would like to spend some time with our family, get to know our girls as well as explore the Netherlands. Our au-pair will not be the main child care provider for that we will have the school and day-care.

We are only looking for au-pairs from the Czech Republic, as we are unable to assist with visa applications in any way.
