Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Greetings from the family!
We’re a young, vibrant family living on a small farm in the outskirts of Bologna looking for a young lady interested in being a "big sister" for our 2 year old son and another on the way!
Life on the farm is tranquil but exciting, there are always activities to keep us busy. Besides tending to the chickens and our vegetable garden, our house is located in a vast green countryside near to bike trails and parks, making it ideal for engaging in outdoor sports activities such as cycling and jogging. In addition, for those that enjoy the city life, we are a mere 20 minutes train ride from the city center of Bologna.

Family Description

We are a very open minded family with plenty of experience hosting Au pairs. In the home we speak English as the host mom is from the United States and considers it priority to raise her children as fully bilingual. We have a small, white dog named Kira who is very friendly and playful.

Our son, Alberto, turned 2 years old in August. He is a very active and talkative little guy who enjoys meeting new people. His current favourite activity is building towers out of legos/blocks/magna-tiles, completing puzzles, and drawing pictures with magic markers. He has always had a great relationship with all of our former Au pairs, and we love to give him this amazing opportunity to interact with different people from all over the world at such an early age!
