Welcome Letter to the Au Pair


We are a family with three little children (0, 1.5 and 5 years old), living in Penzberg/Germany, a city of 16 000 people 50 km south of Munich. We are a very open and friendly family and look for an au-pair who will be part of the family rather than a flat mate. You would of course have your own furnished room and share the rest of the house and little garden with us. We live very close to a little forest and there are a lot of small lakes as well as nice mountains nearby, so the perfect site for people who love nature and outdoor activities, like we do.

Our two older children go to a day care center/Kindergarden and the smallest will go there too, as soon as he becomes 1 year old (in March 2018). Until then one of us parents is in parental leave but regularly we both have to work full-time, so that we primarily need help with bringing the two older children to the day care center and playing with them in the afternoon. Or to play with the youngest while we are taking care of the other two or the household. We will NOT ask you to take care of all three children alone. It would also be great to get some additional support with easy household tasks. The day care center is quite close to where we live and therefor it is not mandatory to have a driving license or the ability to ride a bike.

Although we would prefer to have a Portuguese native speaker (my parents live in Portugal and our children already understand some Portuguese), we would also be open to any other nationality and culture since we think that criteria other than the language are much more important for a good friendship. Besides Portuguese and German we both speak English and one of us each Portuguese (mother) or French (father).

We are open regarding the time of your stay but would prefer a duration of more than six months.

Best wishes,
Janina and family

Job Description

Your main task will be to take care of the two older children. This includes dressing them in the morning and bringing them to the Kindergarden where they usually stay until 3 to 4 p.m. before you would have to pick them up and take care of them until we come home from work. In addition, we would like you to help with bringing them to bed in the evening and to help with some easy household tasks, e.g. vacuum cleaning or grocery shopping.
