Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

We are an Australian solo parent family - myself and my 4 year old son, George - who live in Ottawa, Canada. We will return to Australia in December 2025 hence keen to explore the country as much as we can.

We live in the suburb of Old Ottawa South in Ottawa and are located right on the Rideau Canal, in what I think is the best street in Ottawa! We are less than 3 kilometres from downtown. There are loads of things to do in and around Ottawa, including in winter - all manner of cultural, social and sporting activities are available like any capital city. We will be discovering and exploring Ottawa together

Job Description

I am seeking an au pair who enjoys spending time with George (and I) and ideally, have some experience with caring for active, energetic boys, and who is a fluent French speaker.

I need someone who:

- Shows initiative; identifying and doing what needs to be done
- Is open and honest in communicating any issues
- Can have fun with George but also be firm particularly with safety and security boundaries yet ensuring they are respectful and kind
- Has a can do attitude
- Is willing to chat with George in French or your native language (and English too!)
- Is independent

Your responsibilities:

You may be required to prepare George for preschool in the morning and at times take him to school on time. This will involve preparing his clothes, school bags and getting George to be responsible for their own things. You will take him to school via public transport, and walk in summer (approximately 2.5km each way). You will do the laundry and prepare healthy snacks for his after school snacks. You will assist in preparing evening meals. I will ask you to undertake small errands and general household chores, but largely you will have time to yourself during the day to go to the gym, shopping, explore Ottawa or catch up with friends. In the afternoon, you will collect George from school, provide him with after school snacks, and play with him, and involve him in household chores. During the school holidays, there will be 2 weeks when you will need to care for George full-time. There will be occasions where before and after hours care is required to enable me to attend work functions or events. We would love you to share your native language with the boys as much as possible, and support George learning French. 

Your weekly schedule may be different from week to week, and we will sit down once a week to discuss the next week's (fortnight and month's) schedule. I can be flexible with the daytime hours and will try to provide as many long weekends (Friday or Monday off) as possible to enable you to travel. Whilst I ask for flexibility, I am equally very flexible in return so you can also exlore! We will also try to keep any additional hours to an absolute minimum to ensure that you get a good break on the weekend.

You will have your own bedroom and ensuite located on a different floor to my son and I. It is bright and sunny, and in my view the best room in the house!
