Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hi! We are an american/german family living in a remote area of Guatemala. We would love for you to become a part of our family for a few months and even stay in touch through the years. We can share our 3 cultures with you. Although we like our space as a family on occasion and our lifestyle can be simple, we also love to share new experiences with people. For example, we made an effort to be sure our last au pair was able to see the colonial town of Antigua while here, the beach, the city, and even have a small flight to view the country from above. We are always happy to help you have as many unique experiences here as possible.

We are looking for someone to babysit/teach about 5 hours a day. We would love to find someone who can be very interactive and playful with our kids and can plan fun activities for outdoor play, as well as plan interactive lessons that involve both children. We are not looking for someone who would just sit and watch them.

We prefer someone who speaks Spanish very well so our children can maintain their first language. Spanish, is also essential for you as no english is spoken in our remote town, so you will need to be at least proficient to get around here. However, you are welcome to practice english with us, the parents, and you will hear it spoken a lot in our home.

Job Description

You must be willing to learn new techniques for working with kids, even if you have a lot of experience. We would require connected techniques for discipline. We do not use or allow rewards or punishments. We do have a lot of boundaries in our home and are not "permissive" parents. We can help teach you gentle discipline if you are not familiar with it.

Typically, we would only need your help 5-6 hours a day and the rest of the time you would be free. We would occasionally need your help outside of the working hours but we would check with you ahead and pay you for that time. You could travel on the weekends, or visit other areas around Lake Atitlan. You need to be able to entertain yourself as we would like to maintain a large amount of family time with just our children each day. In your free time you can plan lessons and then do whatever you would like, but it is important to note that our area is not a great place for meeting other people or partying. It can be quite boring for some. You need to be a very independent person, maybe even an introvert to thrive here. Unless you want to travel to areas with a shuttle on the weekends like Antigua or Guatemala City. Please research Santiago Atitlan before contacting us.

We are currently looking for someone for 3 months, but it would be possible to extend your visa if we are all in agreement to continue for longer.

Accommodation

You would have your own small, but new house. It has a full kitchen, bathroom with a warm water shower, kitchen, desk, laundry, and closet. You would be required to buy your own groceries and cook your own meals, except for lunch with us each day. Occasionally, we would ask you to share the house with female family members or friends who visit.

Though remote, our neighborhood is beautiful and peaceful. It is about a 10 minute drive from Santiago Atitlan. It is a wonderful area for hiking and just enjoying nature. If you have a drivers license you would be welcome to borrow our scooter to go into Santiago Atitlan.
