Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hello there,

this is Alex, Barbara, Juno and Quinn. We are living in Mülheim an der Ruhr, a town in the middle of Metropole Ruhr (Ruhr Area). Our house is very close to the city centre, but also just a few minutes by bike to the river Ruhr with its extensive green areas. A supermarket is just across the road and our day care center is just a five minute walk up the road. A tram stop is right near the house.

We also have a park with playgrounds next door and another very large green area/ wood with a little zoo and deers is in walking-distance. Great for all who love running.

We have moved here last summer and really appreciate that we hardly need the car anymore.

We also have a small garden with a little playground for the kids, which we all hope to enjoy during the summer. We can't wait to get the BBQ going for the first time. If you want to join us here - please get in touch.

Family Description

Both parents work full-time, currently from home. However, Barbara is working as a freelancer copywriter / editor and has always been working from home (not only during Covid-times). Alex is working in Data Protection with an international energy provider. Working from home is not an issue in our house as we have 5 bedrooms and fully equipped offices. So there is room for privacy for everyone.

We consider ourselves as a very open-minded and friendly family. We are all quite active, love traveling and enjoy exploring new things and places. An open communication is important to all of us. We like to be surrounded by friends and family and try to spend valuable time with our kids.

We are looking for an au-pair who is responsible and proactive. A positive mind and a good laugh are very welcome. :-)

We live in a semidetached house with 5 bedrooms and a small garden. The house has lots of stairs, which keep us all in shape. ;-) You would stay in a newly renovated, very bright attic (25sqm) with sink, coffee machine and small fridge. We would also provide a bathroom for you with toilet and shower.

The Ruhr Area is an extensive urban area with lots of towns directly locking into each other (Population of 5 mio). Mülheim has 230.000 inhabitants. There is a lot to see, explore and visit (sights, culture, clubs, landscape...). The people here are very down to earth, pragmatic and friendly with a special sense of humor. Düsseldorf is easily reached by regional train (20-30 min).
