Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hello!

We have a large home with 4 floors to live in! One whole floor is our recreation room and it has gym equipment, a large screen TV,and a very large play area for our son, Jasper. WIFI is throughout the house.

Our 3rd floor has an entire living suite for a live-in au pair that includes a bedroom, bathroom and large living area with couches, desk and small kitchenette.

We have 2 large SUV's .

We like to travel and have lived abroad for several years; Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

Our son Jasper is just over 14 months old. Walking and communicating well but not with words yet.

We are most interested in promoting Montessori learning in our home.

Jasper doesn't watch TV and we have no plans to introduce him to electronics for quite some time. He enjoys listening to stories and exploring the world, each day is a bit different.

In August Avery, Jasper and our au pair will be moving to a nearby town within 1,5 hours of New Haven so Avery can attend Law School. We will rent a home or a large apartment and the Au Pair will live with Avery and Jasper. Richard will come on the weekends.

Avery, Jasper and the Au Pair will spend approximately 75% of the school year at the other residence and 25% of their time in Connecticut.

Job Description

The Montessori philosophy is based on supporting the complete development of the child as they progress from birth to adulthood. It takes the broad vision of education as an aid for life.

As a way of teaching, Montessori offers the view that knowledge isn’t passively gained by listening to words. Rather, it is gained through experiences in the surrounding environment.

Therefore, the Montessori approach uses a prepared classroom to inspire children towards a life-long love of learning.

Qualities of the prepared classroom include: structure, order, freedom of movement, and freedom of choice.

Within this structured space, children learn through hands-on experiences. Especially relevant are the beautifully made Montessori learning materials that children work with to make independent learning discoveries.

The children are guided in their learning by the Montessori teachers, who act as the link between the children, and the prepared environment.

WE ARE TOTALLY COMMITTED TO PROMOTING THIS PHILOSOPHY. SO MUCH SO THAT, IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY CERTIFIED, WE ARE WILLING TO PAY FOR YOUR TRAINING AND CERTIFICATION WHILE JASPER IS IN YOUR CARE. IT IS VITALLY IMPORTANT TO US THAT WE ALL UNDERSTAND AND PROMOTE ONE COMMON PARENTING AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY. BEING CONSISTENT IN OUR APPROACH TO CHILD REARING IS, WE BELIEVE, IMPORTANT TO JASPER'S EARLY GRASP DEVELOPMENTAL CONCEPTS.
