Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hi, I am a single father of three children (8,6,4), as my wife passed away almost one year ago. I have had an amazing experience with an Aupair from Czech Republic over the last year, however we will be moving from Tokyo to Houston and I cannot bring her with us. The kids are all half Japanese. So while ideally I would find a Japanese aupair, i know that is near impossible. So I am open to any nationality.

My current aupair will be available to speak to you if we begin discussing employment. I think you will find I am a generally happy, laid back person and the kids are a lot of fun.

I know that using an aupair in the USA requires an agency, however I would prefer to find the person first and then follow the agency process.

Job Description

All children go to school full time, so the work will be in the morning, after school, and some on weekends. I will also be hiring a full time housekeeper to maintain the household.

Au Pair Tentative Schedule
Monday through Friday
• 7:00am, Prepare breakfast (eggs, oatmeal, toast, etc.).
• 7:30am, Help kids brush teeth and get ready for school
• 8:15am, walk kids to school (5-10 minute walk).
• 2:30pm, pick up kids from school. Take to any after school activities or help finish homework.
• 5:30pm, finished. Eat dinner with family.

Weekday Evening kid duties:
Be prepared to stay with children late through the evening 2 nights per week. This will depend upon my work schedule. This will involve bathing, reading, tucking in bed. Then remaining in the house, as it will not be certain sometimes when I will return. For 3 of the 5 weeknights, I will plan to be home for dinner.

Weekend duties:
• At least one weekend night the kids will spend at Grandma and Grandpa's house. This might be Friday or Saturday depending upon the weekend plan.
• On the weekend days/nights that kids are not with Grandma, be prepared to join in whatever activity/adventure we can come up with. If one of the kids has a sport practice, we may split up depending upon the time and circumstances.

Aupair will prepare breakfast. I will also ask you to prepare dinner 2 or 3 nights per week. For the remaining nights of the week, I will have dinner prepared by a helper/housekeeper that I will hire.

Au pair only has to do her own laundry. The housekeeper will take care of kids and Brent.

Most will be taken care of my housekeeper. Au Pair only needs to tidy up after kids from time to time.

Weekends: 10hrs.
Weekdays morning: 5X2 hrs. = 10hrs.
Weekdays pm: 5X4 hrs. = 20hrs.
