Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear new member of our young family

We're a young, sportive, outdoorsy family, living in an astonishing house just a few minutes outside Zurich, surrounded by nature. We would love to welcome you to our wonderful home and stay with us for one (>) year. Frederike (mom) and Florian (dad), both work fulltime in professional jobs in Consulting and Financial Management in Zurich. There are three boys in our family – Charles (almost 3.5 years) and his younger twin brothers Syndey and Philip (both 24 months) and our beautiful and fun dog named Lago. We are very international and lived in various countries around the globe.

We are looking for an open minded, warm hearted person to stay with us and share our family live. It get's never ever boring in our house - we love live and almost never rest. During summer months we enjoy swimming in the very close by lake, sports, hiking, and having dinner parties. During winter we enjoy cozy days next to the fire place, skiing and being in the snow.

We would love to welcome you to our family

Job Description

Charlie will start kindergarden in August once he turns four years. He will join the Montessori Kindergarden in Zurich. We are strongly convinced by the Montessori concept of education and would prefer if you would share this interest and even have some experience or at least basic understanding of the concept.

Philip and Sydney will not join kindergarden for at least the next 36 months. During the day we would expect you to take care of both and together with them explore the world in a creative and supportive way.

We offer you a car to get around with the kids (you can also take use of the car in your time off). This enables you to go to the public bath, Zoo, playgrounds, join play groups etc. with the kids. This is something we absolutely expect from you – being active with the kids, have a can-do attitude and show a positive and motivating way to solve problems, explore the little things in our daily lives and help us to make our boys strong, interested and wanting to conquer the world.

Other than that, we would offer you to take language courses, take part in education programs around child care (e.g. special cooking courses, idea generation for play full education etc. – as mentioned already preferably aligned with the Montessori concept of education).

That being said, major job requirements include:

- Taking care of the twins and Charlie (afternoons) during week days, which might include to commute Charlie to and from Kindergarden in Zurich.

- The clear focus of your support would be the wellbeing of the kids. This includes preparing healthy meals. However we would expect you to support in chores, mainly taking care of your own laundry, bathroom and cleaning up after you used something.

In general you should like somewhat the things we love. We expect you to become a person of trust for our kids and a member of our family for the time you are with us (and hopefully the time after :)). We frequently go on vacations, do weekend trips to the countryside and we would offer you but also expect from you to take part in these activities from time to time. However we respect the need for personal time and think a young person wants to explore the new surrounding on her own.

Zurich is a special place since it offers a very international atmosphere mainly driven by the financial industry, but also provides a fantastic countryside and nature just a few minutes outside of downtown. We live in a beautiful countryside house surrounded by cow bells and horses (you can take horse riding classes in your time of). Our next neighbors are 400m down the hill and we enjoy absolute tranquility while still seeing overlooking downtown Zurich the lake and mountains. The house is surrounded by 5000m2 of garden and fields, filled with apple trees and room for all kind of fun activities during summer and the plenty full snow in winter.

The house offers two bathrooms (one in the master bedroom) and is separated into a living, dining and kitchen area on the ground floor and bedrooms and bathrooms on the first floor. We offer you a separate room with an astonishing view in the traditional countryside style of Switzerland mountain farms. You can take use of bikes, a scooter and a 4x4 car (we need it during winter ;)).
