Introduction letter

We are a family of 5 living in the fantastic Pacific North West, Seattle, WA state, close to the mountains and beaches. We have three girls, aged from 2 months (stays home all the time), and a 3 and a 4 years old, who both go to a full time pre-school (kindergarten) every weekday. Hence, only 1 kid is home all day.

We mainly speak English at home, but we can also speak other languages, including Norwegian and Russian. The husband was born in Norway, Vesteraalen islands. He has an MBA and is self employed. The wife is original from Moscow, Russia. She is an environmental engineer. However, we have been living in the USA for decades.
To ensure our kids will pick up Norwegian (and/or Russian), we are looking for a person that speaks Norwegian fluently, where the idea is that this person will speak mostly / only Norwegian to the kids (at all times), so the kids will catch on. Alternatively, Russian, but the kids already speaks and understand this to some degree already, so Norwegian is the most "critical" language. The kids are today communicating mainly in English.

Job description

We live in a large home, very close to the beach in Seattle, specifically West Seattle (Alki beach area). Quiet and upscale neighborhood. You will have your own room and bath. Details to be discussed. You will have some days off during the week, and assist with all kids during weekends (3 weekends out of 4 every per Month). We are flexible and we can discuss best schedule. Some cleaning, light house work and preparing food related to children. Note that we have a pet, a beautiful family dog of the Bernese Mountain Dog breed. He is 1 year old and still playful.
