Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear future aupair,
We are looking for you - a mature and open-minded, caring aupair, who will enjoy spending time with our girls as of Sept 2022

I am a single Mom of two lovely daughters (6 and 13 years old). The older one goes to school in the morning hours, the little will start school in September. We live in Rheinfelden, a town right on the German- Swiss border. This area is called „tri- border region“ since we are very close to France and Switzerland. It takes us three minutes to enter Switzerland. For more holiday feeling we reach Italy within 2,5 hours and France just within 20 min.
We are fortunate to live in a beautiful very spacious two storey apartment close to the center of Rheinfelden and only a 20 minute drive to Basel- a beautiful big city in Switzerland.
I work at the Theatre Basel as a permament member of the opera choir. Music dominates our lives. My daughter Emily plays the piano, talia plays the violin and joins the choir. Since my working hours at the theatre are not comparable to „regular“ working hours, I'd appreciate help in every day life by you.
Your main working hours would be in the late afternoon or in the evening depending my rehearsal / performance schedule. This would give you time to visit a language course in the morning hours for example. There are quite few families with aupairs around here, who get together regularly. Finding friends will not be an issue here! (Facebook group "Aupair Basel")

The kids love spending time with their dad- an opera singer as well- mainly every two weeks and during their school holidays. He lives in Mannheim- a 2,5 hrs drive from Rheinfelden. This would give you enough free time to travel on your own as well and be off quite often.
We are in good terms and try to do our best as separated parents.

Being half- American our kids are being raised bilingual. I would really appreciate you speaking English or German to the kids.We love going outside, cycling, doing crafts, visiting other cities, getting together with our family and friends or just enjoy the sunshine on our beautiful roof terrace.
We' d love to introduce you to this beautiful area in Germany with many possibilities!

Our first Aupair came from the US, the second aupair from Finland- she' d be very happy to tell you about all the benefits you have, our family life etc.

We are looking forward to hearing from you!
