Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear Au Pair,

We are looking forward to meeting you!

You will speak fluent Spanish and talk to the children in Spanish. You can talk to me in English or Spanish but you will need to talk to my husband in English.

We are looking for you to work 30 hours a week. Each morning you will be busy from 7:30am to 9am. You will make breakfast for Aodhan our oldest son and make a pack lunch for him to take to school. You will then be responsible for him getting dressed, having breakfast and brushing his teeth, all the time chatting to him in Spanish. At about 8:30am you will take our oldest and our youngest son, Arlo, out in the buggy. You will drop our youngest son at his childminder about 10 minutes walk from our house and then go on to Montessori (another 10 minutes further walk) and drop Aodhan there. His Montessori starts at 9am.

Then you are free until 3pm Monday to Thursday to attend language school or do whatever else you want to do. On Friday Montessori finishes at 12:30pm.

We need you to pick Aodhan up from Montessori each day and keep him entertained until we get home from work at 6pm. We will make him dinner when we get home. We also need you to pick up our younger son from childminder each day and bring him home for 6pm.

You will be free every evening from 6pm unless we have asked you especially to do baby sitting.

That is 25 hours a week but we will ask you to do an additional 5 hours, baby sitting and very light house hold duties (we have cleaners but we will ask you to help with keeping the kitchen clean or washing and/or shopping in those additional 5 hours).

You will have a lovely room and your own bathroom. You will be living in London 8 minutes walk from a station that goes directly into Waterloo central London in a house with a big garden in Richmond, a lovely London suburb.

I am a lawyer but I am also a qualified English as a foreign language teacher. My husband is Irish. We both enjoy Hispanic culture. You will find us to be friendly, hard working, considerate, warm and flexible and we want the same from you.

We hope that you will be happy with us and will stay at least 12 months, and maybe more, and feel part of our family while you are with us.
