Welcome Letter to the Au Pair




Thank you for taking a look at our profile. Please read thoroughly and we hope you are interested. We prefer someone whom is currently residing in the UK and/or EU citizens. We won't shy away from non-EU citizens as long as you're able to obtain a visa. We want someone whom will act as an extended part of our family and whom wants to build a lasting relationship. Our children mean the world to us and I'm sure they'll grow attached to you so want you to treat them as family. Don't be afraid to make yourself feel at home. Watch television with us, share meals, go on trips to town, neighboring city, country, etc. Be open and willing to learn or experience.

We are an American family residing in the UK. We come from the total opposite sides of the country, but met halfway. We welcome our next Au Pair into our home and hope you consider us as a host family. As this for you as well as us. We hope our profile hasn't scared you away. We are a simple and try to be good people.

We would like to note we do host travelers from around the world from Couchsurfing. If you would like to take a look at our profile and reviews please ask..

Have a great day.

Job Description

You must be able to style little girls hair. We're in search of someone willing to act as our extended family. Our girls are extremely active and fun loving once they've gotten to know you so please be patient. If arrangements do not work out we will give you a 4 weeks notice, but if candidate continues to not meet agreed terms upon 1st warning you will have to depart in 48 hours after the 3rd time. Endangering the children will be immediate removal.

You will have the option to take American Holidays and British Bank Holidays off so please look at those dates. There will be weeks you will either work 20 hours or less. Please keep that in mind when applying. Due to the amount of free time you will have off we would like you to be open with doing odd hours occasionally. We require you to assist with the children 1 weekend a month and ask that you spend a night or whole weekend outside of the house a month to allow us to have the house to ourselves while you're able to explore more and take a break. We advise making a couchsurfing profile to find hosts or using a hostel for that time away from the house. 3 weekends a month is completely free unless agreed otherwise. We encourage you to earn extra pocket money or find a part time job. As long as it doesn't hinder your Au Pair duties at the home. Especially school runs and if needed for last minute assistance. Your Au Pair duties so your work hours should be flexible.

5) Arrive for school pick up by 14:55 as the children are released at 15:00
6) Give them a snack and hydrate them as necessary
7) Take them to the park and be home by 17:00 as that's when you're off unless discussed before hand. If you arrive home before this time you must assist them with their homework.

Non-School Days:
Varied and agreed upon discussion. Recommend for use of holiday if desired. Fairly more flexible so we will try to work with you if you provide us with the same courtesy.
