Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

We are Elke and Christoph from Offenbach am Main, RheinMain Region, Hessen, Germany. We have two energetic but delightful children aged 10 and 8; their names are Sophia and Emilia. We do have family in Hong Kong and the US, where the cousins of our two girls are growing up speaking mainly english. That is why our girls are attending a trilingual school to already learn english and spanish. We do speak german at home, but it would be an asset to have somebody native english speaking for our kids to help them improving their language.

Job Description

We would like you to help us getting the girls ready in the mornings and drop Emilia at school by bike. You would pick her up in the afternoon between 16:00 and 16:30. In between, after tidying up the kids room, you are free to your own activities, e.g. to visit language school or explore the area (Frankfurt is really close). After picking up Emilia in the afternoon you would organize the time with her (spend some time outside on playgrounds with her friends or cycling or doing arts and crafts at home). We would like you to be creative in their indoor and outdoor activities and to use the chance to improve their english language skills by reading them books, telling stories, invent new things, etc. It would be an asset if you are experienced in working with kids. Sophia is going to school on her own, but you should always be aware of her, too, not spending too much time at home all alone. Christoph and I are usually getting home not later than 19:00. Afterwards we are preparing dinner, eating all together and spending some time with the kids.

Generally you would be responsible for your own room and to organize the kids stuff e.g. tidying up their room, doing the kids laundry and we would also ask you to help us in laying the table, cleaning the table and the kitchen after our meals. Additionally we do have a cleaning lady.

We do not require much babysitting in the evenings which means that you are free to enjoy these as you wish. In your spare time you can easily go to Frankfurt, which is only 10 minutes away by s-bahn or 20 minutes by bike. As our region is located quite in the centre of Germany and Europe, you can also discover a lot on your days off.

If we sound like your kind of family, and you are looking for an abroad experience covering the dates we need someone, we would love to talk to you!

Family Description

Christoph is working with the German Central Bank (Financial Stability Department), he enjoys going for walks in the countryside nearby and cycle. I am an architect and working with the City council of Frankfurt. We usually take our bikes to get to our offices in Frankfurt. In my spare time I enjoy cooking and having family and friends around. We would like to find an openminded au pair who fits into our lifestyle, is interested in getting to know us, is rather extraverted and outgoing and enjoys the time with us. The kids are doing swimming and ballet and also love to spend time on the playground or arrange playdates with their friends. We often do host friends and family as well and love garden parties.
