Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear Au Pair,

Our names are Neil and Niamh and we are parents to one year old Amelie. We live in the suburbs of London, 10 minutes walk to the tube and five minutes walk to the high street in a very comfortable house with multiple bathrooms, two living rooms (one is part of the kitchen) and a large garden. We currently both work (I work 4 days per week, term time only as I am a teacher, and my husband works full time, commuting to London). I am newly interested in working alongside an Au Pair due to the experiences shared by friends. We have quite a busy lifestyle and pick up/ drop off from nursery make work commitments and time together as a couple very limited. An Au Pair may be the answer to me getting back to full time work and pursuing the career path I was on prior to having Amelie (I was in school leadership prior). Therefore the support we would hope for would be 1-2 days a week childcare, and support with pick up and drop off 1-2 of the other days. Otherwise, potentially looking after Amelie after bedtime for 45 minutes so that we could go for a run or an exercise class once a week- ad hoc arrangements if you were at home (this would not need to be pre-arranged).

We both work out of the house at least 3 days per week. We are organised, kind and Amelie is the centre of our world. We have lots of good friends and like to cook good food, and think that the right candidate would very much enjoy working alongside us.

I work term time only and so would need less support during school holidays. I am Irish and tend to visit Ireland at least 5-6 times per year with Amelie. I also have five siblings which sometimes visit. (4 sisters and 1 brother between the ages of 34-25).

I look forward to hearing from you.

Job Description

Amelie would attend nursery three days per week from 8-6pm and so the following arrangements would be needed:

Two days per week- drop Amelie off at Nursery at 8am. Mum would leave home at 7am.

One -two days per week- childcare from 7:30-5:15. Take Amelie swimming and to baby classes on these days. Meals/ activities would be prepared in advance by parents

One evening per week- collection of Amelie from nursery at 5pm and complete dinner/ bath routine until bedtime at 7pm.

One evening per week babysitting

These arrangements would take place during term time. However during holidays when we are in the UK, this support would also be needed at times due to mother studying.

Ideally, au pair would take planned holidays outside of term time to coincide with mother's holidays. This can be discussed and potentially managed with advance warning.

Wifi available. Parents have ensuite so main bathroom would be for the au pair's use only. However Amelie has her bath in there every evening at around 6:30.
