Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Originally translated from Deutsch
We are a patchwork family from Rüti (a small town 30 minutes from Zurich). We have three children: 4 year old twins (a boy and a girl) and an 8 year old girl. In addition, two cats and a dog live in our house.
We live 10 minutes from Rapperswil and 30 minutes from Zurich. Both cities are located on the beautiful Lake Zurich. From the train station you can reach both cities every quarter of an hour. Rüti has a variety of shops.
Our row family house has three floors and a spacious garden.
We both work in the social sector (men 80%, women 60%). Either someone from us or another person of trust will always be available to you personally or by phone.
During the first time of your au pair stay with us there will always be an adult present.

The 4-year-old twins will go to kindergarten from August 2020. The twin boy visits the kindergarten around the corner. The twin girl will attend a special needs kindergarten. The 8-year-old changes to 3rd grade.
Our impaired girl has a developmental lag of about 2 years. She is a diagnosed epileptic but currently has no seizures due to the well-adjusted medication.

What are our expectations?
We expect our children to be treated respectfully and still implement our rules. We have certain rules, but we also have a lot that conscious decisions can be made from the gut - because the gut feeling is usually a really good guide. We can make mistakes because we can only learn from mistakes. We often reflect on each other in the evening in order to be able to solve a coming similar situation differently.
You as an au pair are clearly advertised as “legal guardians” to the children - because you shouldn't be a girl for everything, nor a playmate or even cleaning service.
We want someone who can keep calm in hectic situations but also laugh in funny moments.
Since the twins will go to kindergarten from August 2020 and we are working, we expect that you will bring Roméo to the kiga and pick you up again (3 minutes on foot), that you will prepare lunch (mostly leftovers from the evening before) and Luna on time send to school in the afternoon. Since Joya attends a full-day special school, she is picked up in the morning via school taxi and brought back later in the afternoon.
The times with which you would be alone with all three children are therefore short. To the Kiga resp. You always have breaks or time for yourself at school. Also at lunchtime, since our children always take a break for lunch.
Housework is of course enough for us. We also expect your help here and are open to consciously contributing your strengths.
We want someone in the house who also treats us with respect and is willing to open up and integrate into our family life.
Since the children are with their dad every 14 days as mentioned above, you have not only free time on these weekends but also "relaxation" due to the much quieter environment.
It is very important for us to mention that we have family and friends in the area. So if you don't know what to do, don't hesitate to call these people and ask for help. Because asking for help is a really strong trait!
We hope to have given you a first glimpse of our family and would be happy to meet you.
