Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hello! We are an Expat family from United States and Romania living in a beautiful German wine country town near Wiesbaden in the greater Frankfurt area.

As our small business has started to grow, we are looking for a loving, energetic, and charismatic caretaker to help around the house with our spunky 3.5 year old daughter.

We would love to welcome you to our family for a minimum of 6 months to 2 years and to embrace the culture of our au pair or long term nanny position while also sharing experiences and travel in Europe as a family.

We are happy to open our home for housing accommodations with a private small apartment complete with a private bath, bed, and kitchen for our next caretaker.

Job Description

We are are looking for someone to actively play, explore, teach, and explore new things after school and one day during the weekend. Cleaning the home while the child is in school would also be a main priority for the position.

Kindness and gentle parenting are very important to us as we do NOT believe in aggressive discipline, yelling, or hitting but rather calmly explaining and communicating with the children to provide a trusting and safe space for the kids. The child doesn’t any unusual behavioral problems and are generally very kind and also full of energy! So someone who also is energetic is important.

One full day off per week with several free evenings per week would be allotted to our au pair, however, our work schedules are not fixed so hours will vary day to day so flexibly for work is necessary.

The main responsibilities are cleaning and child care but can also include light cooking, play time, laundry, grocery shopping, and school pickups. We estimate that in the 30 hours a week that about 40% of the time will be cleaning and laundry, 40% child care, and 20% other duties.

If you can speak in a Latin language with our child this is a huge plus but not mandatory.

Family Description

As a mix national family, we love to embrace culture and meet people from around the world! My husband is a native German and Romanian speaker and I am a native English speaker and we decided to live to Germany in 2016 to be closer to my husbands extended family and for a better quality of life with children. We love to travel, cook, do yoga, tennis, explore new wineries in the area, and have regular family outings.
We are a fun loving couple who are constantly on the go, so when we do have downtime, we value the quality of family togetherness. We are respectful of the privacy of our au pair and prefer to not micromanage rather allow our au pair to have the freedom to explore and travel during the stay.

We have a private apartment (40sqm) under the main home which would offer a private bathroom, bed, washing machine, and Kitchenette along with a private entrance and patio overlooking a beautiful historical pond with lots of nature.
