Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hi there, I am a single mom to two children, an 8 year old daughter and a 3 year old son. My grandmother and our four cats also live with us.
I work as a teacher so need to be out of the house early and the times I get home differ. I don't go to work during the school holidays.
We live in Paignton, near the sea. There is a bus stop directly outside the house which takes you to the town and local areas. Our school and nursery are a few minutes walk up the road from our house.
We are looking for someone who would be responsible for getting the children ready and to school in the mornings, then to pick them up and oversee them until I am home. I would also like someone who is able to do some light housework and to cook some meals during the working week.

Family Description

My daughter, Rhian, is 8 and is at primary school. She has recently started learning how to play the piano. She wants screens at any opportunity and I try to keep her busy to avoid this. She loves her barbies and LOL dolls, she is a keen swimmer and is enjoying doing lots of after-school clubs. She is very helpful and responsible.
My son, Levi, will be 4 in May. He is a big character and can be strong-willed! I am trying to instill some independence in him before I return to work full time (such as putting on his trousers, getting himself off the toilet) but he wants everyone to mother him. He will begin school in September, for now he is at play school. He loves playing playdough, role play, playing with balls. He is very nervous swimming and it can be a battle to get him in. I really want him to enjoy the water and feel confident in it, especially as we live by the beach and go to the swimming pool often!
We are hoping to find a Spanish au pair as we would love to learn the language (as we visit the country regularly).
We eat limited meat - we have chicken once or twice a week and maybe beef once a month. My son and I have oat milk but my daughter has cow's milk.
