Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hello and welcome to our profile! Thank you for showing interest in becoming a member of our family for the next couple of years. We are looking for a loving and intelligent young woman to help us with infant child care as we welcome our new baby girl into the world. Dawn Elise is expected to be born around mid June and we are seeking an au pair to join us in September 2020 for about one and a half to two years. We hope that you will consider becoming a part of our family. We are looking for someone who will provide the same level of love and care for our little girl as we will. We look forward to opening up our home and hearts to you.

We are located in Sunnyvale, Texas, which is a small suburb about 20 minutes via car east of Dallas, Texas. Our home is located in a wonderful neighborhood and quiet community. The house itself is over 4200 sq ft (390 sq meters), very spacious and situated on a little over half an acre of land with a large fenced backyard. We do have three large dogs that live in the household. If you are allergic to dogs, this is most likely not the home for you. The living space provided for the au pair would include a private bedroom, full bathroom, and very spacious closet. Of course you will have access to the kitchen, living room, and media room, as well as the rest of the home at your convenience. Public transportation in Sunnyvale and Dallas is very limited; therefore, we will make available a vehicle for you to use at your leisure and to perform child care related errands.

*PLEASE NOTE*
We will be browsing the website and adding au pairs who look like they may be suitable candidates over the next few months. We will start communicating directly with applicants beginning in March or April of 2020. If you add us as a favorite or send us a message please do not be discouraged if you do not receive a reply until March or April. We are interested but we will not be interviewing or communicating directly with candidates until closer to our due date.

Job Description

Dawn is scheduled to be born in mid June and Joy will be taking some time for maternity leave. We plan on beginning our au pair hosting in September. Joy will be returning to her job as an attorney. Primary responsibilities will be the care of Dawn, including but not limited to preparing and administering feedings, bathing, dressing, diaper duty, bottle cleaning, baby laundry and of course, playing and entertaining her. As I am retired, I will be at the home and available to assist in these activities as needed. I do not have any experience caring for a child, but am excited and ready to learn more about child care from you throughout your time with our family. My wife does travel quite frequently for her job both domestically and internationally. You may be asked to accompany her with Dawn on occasion (of course all travel costs would be taken care of). Places that she has visited in the past include Seattle WA, Austin TX, Los Angeles CA, San Francisco CA, San Diego CA, Washington DC, Miami FL, and Chicago IL. Internationally she frequents London, Tokyo, Geneva, Toronto, and Shanghai.

If you are not already first aid certified, then we will expect you to attend and pass an infant first aid course during your first month here. We will pay the associated cost with you attending any such course.

Though we do have dogs in the home, you will not be expected to provide any specific care or responsibilities in regards to them other than occasionally opening a door to let them in the house or feeding them a treat from time to time :)

We do have maids that come to the home every two weeks to clean the house. This keeps the house relatively clean at most times. As part of this, they will vacuum your room, clean your bathroom including scrubbing the toilet and shower, empty your trash bins, and make your bed. If you prefer that the maids NOT enter your private space to clean, it can be arranged. They do visit on the same day every two weeks, and I can give you notification a day prior as to their expected arrival time.
