Welcome Letter to the Au Pair


My name is Elsa Sykes. I am the joyful mother of six children ranging in age from 19-8 years old. I am looking for help with care for the younger three ( 8 years, 10 years, and 12 years old) as well as help driving four of our children to lessons and activities. We have a large home full of love and laughter. We also have one dog and a turtle that will require help with feeding and occasional care.
We live in the beautiful suburb of New Canaan, Connecticut with a lively town center just one mile away from our home. The train station is located in the town where you can catch a train into New York City. New York's Grand Central Station is just an hour from our home.
