Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

We hope that you will be interested in coming to the UK to become an au pair for our beautiful daughter Sophia. My name is Andrew and I work as a teacher of computer science as well as managing IT at the school. Amelia is a teacher of English, who speaks fluent Spanish and has even taught Spanish in the past. We both work full time.

Sophia is one year old and currently attends child care but we are hoping you will be able to take care of her for us during the day. We’re very proud of our daughter, she is growing up to be such a friendly and affectionate girl. We’re pretty confident she’ll be walking soon! Sophia loves reading books and playing with her toys. She is very chatty, sociable and confident around other people and she loves to go outdoors.

It’s important to us that you get the most out of your stay with us. Being a teacher, Amelia can support you with developing your English language acquisition and there are opportunities to attend English language courses nearby.

We hope you will consider coming to spend some time with our family.

Job Description

We would like you to care for Sophia for around 35 – 40 hours per week. This will always be from Monday to Friday and you will have the weekends to yourself. Being teachers, our finishing time can vary. Often there are events such as parents’ evenings or after school clubs we need to supervise, so we would appreciate you being flexible during these times. We wouldn’t expect you to work after we get home.

One of the benefits of being teachers is we can take much of the school holidays as leave and we wouldn’t expect you to work during these periods when we're home. This will give you lots of opportunities to explore everything England has to offer!

It would be great if you could take Sophia to a range of activities during the day. We are new to the area but we are sure there will be a variety of fun things you and Sophia will be able to do together. In addition, we would like you to prepare Sophia’s daytime meals and ensure she takes her morning and afternoons naps.

Some light cleaning will be necessary (just cleaning up as you go along) as well as washing and organising Sophia's clothes.

We do not expect you to drive but we will pay for a weekly bus pass for you to be able to go out and about. Our house is located on the main bus route between Reading and Wokingham making it easy to get into the city. From Reading, it’s only a 20-minute train ride to London, and we would highly recommend exploring London in your free time.
