Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

IMPORTANT (placing here to avoid wasting your time): We are searching for an au pair who is fluent in Mandarin and has strong driving experience. The au pair must also be comfortable eating vegetarian food at home.

We are a multi-cultural family of 5 living within the city of San Francisco in our 12th year of successfully hosting au pairs! Our large home is in a quiet residential area, but just a short 5-10 minute walk to the subway train which has 4 train lines continuously running downtown. We also are near convenient bus and bicycle routes. This is a fun location with lots of opportunities to enjoy the culture and city life, but also with plenty of outdoor green space and fresh air.

Anand (host dad) travels a LOT for work, and Laura (host mom) stays home to help with the house & kids. The 3 boys (Rohan, Shaan & Noah) attend a Mandarin-immersion school and mostly need help getting to their various activities around the city after school. The activities include: music (piano, guitar, drums & singing), tennis, basketball, swimming and computer coding. As a family, we enjoy skiing together in the winter, and traveling.

Job Description

Au pair will generally work a split schedule with some help before & after school on weekdays. If working on weekends, we always make sure to allow the 1.5 days off as required for the program. We have had au pairs for >11 years and are very familiar with the rules and how to make a fair and reasonable schedule. The schedule can also be flexible to accomodate the au pair's class schedule and other needs. Free language classes are available at the nearby City College of San Francisco. We use Google Calendar to share our family calendar, kids schedules and au pair hours to make coordinating easy.
