Welcome Letter to the Au Pair


And thank you for thinking of spending some time in our family...

I live with my son who is 8 in a beautiful old Manor House overlooking the sea in the south west of England.

My son's mother died suddenly and tragically in 2018 since when I have dedicated my time to his needs. He appears to have taken events in his stride as we say and is happy both at home and at his school which is in the neighbouring village only a few minutes away.. He is a lovely and lively boy always with a smile on his face

He loves his ‘ creatures’ which covers any animal, especially beetles and bugs and being outdoors as much as possible. Lego and music too.

Though as with any child I have to be firm with him at times he is used to kindness and gentleness and patience.

Though we live in the country it is a holiday area with young people of many nationalities working locally.

We are looking for someone for 3 months minimum and for the right candidate, the longer the better.

The key to a harmonious relationship will be flexibility and respect on both our parts.

We look forward to welcoming you to our family.
