Welcome Letter to the Au Pair


We are the family. We live in a suburb north of Brisbane in QLD Australia. We have 5 children but only 2 live at home still (they are aged 2 and 7). Our 8 year old son has high functioning Autism, so experience with ASD kids would be great!
We are searching for a au-pair that preferably has some childcare experience or has younger siblings. Our au-pair will be responsible for caring for the boys a few afternoons per week when Carolyn goes to work and before Richard gets home (3 hours). Also will need to care for the children when we have our date nights once a week. We expect that you will have to work 20 hours per week and perhaps help with the cooking every now and then but only if you would like.

We have a female Boston Terrier pup called Bella but you will not be required to care for her. She loves everyone!

We do not smoke and expect that our au-pair will also be a non-smoker. First aid experience would be great but if not, perhaps you can complete a course while you are staying with us?

At this stage we will be looking at a February 2019 start date and the longer we can have one person stay the better but if we find the right person we can negotiate that with them.

You will have your own bedroom with double bed and air conditioning. You will share a bathroom with the 2 boys. If you would like to get out and about during your spare time, there is a train station very close to our house and also bus stops and we encourage our au-pair to see as much as they can fit in during their stay.

If you think we may be a good fit, please let us know. We look forward to talking with you more about this opportunity.
