Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hello! We are currently a family of 4 and expecting a baby in the summer of 2020. This and my upcoming surgery will have us shorthanded and in need of some help before too long. Our children are very outgoing and curious and need a lot of interaction, reading, and they love to learn. Someone with a background in teaching would be great! It's also important you are able to safely drive our children using our van. Our two kids are both already advancing into reading and writing and could use even more help with their learning and exploring. Our house gets busy but fun and we love music, singing and playing instruments. We live in beautiful Santa Cruz, CA (a small beach town with wonderful weather and redwood forests as well as mountains and beaches with world class surfing). We live in the middle of town and frequently bike to the beach or nearby parks, can walk to restaurants and theaters, music venues, the beach boardwalk, etc. We are essentially without 1 parent and up 1 baby and really will need help in all aspects of the home (although we have house cleaners that come regularly, so deep cleaning is not expected). We are looking for someone who can help us balance all the home things such as light cleaning and cooking, help shopping, putting kids to sleep, changing diapers, baths, playing, outings to nature, parks and indoor play areas when there's rainy weather with the older kids, possibly school transport (although undetermined at this time), and occasional trips away as a group to show you around the bay area of California. We appreciate getting to know people on deeper levels and like the idea of hosting someone for long term but of course want it to be a good fit for everyone. We'd love to hear from you if you think it sounds like a place you'd see yourself.
