Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Looking for a mature au pair...

We have 3 children, one starting school next year, (5yr old), a 3 yr old and 7.5 month old.
We have just started our search for an au pair to start beginning of November. We are trying to learn Spanish, so would love someone who can speak fluent Spanish to help the children learn (but not necessary),
We live an hour out of Sydney but only 15 minute drive to the train station to get to most places around Sydney within an hour on the train. We are also reasonably close to the blue mountains.
We live on 12 acres and have chickens and cows and lots of space. My husband and I are both school teachers. (I’ll be working casual November December a few days a wk and Next year I’m hoping to be back at work 3 days/week)

Job Description

duties would include walking the big kids up to preschool and looking after the baby (the big kids attend two days of care). You would have all three children on a Wednesday. (Next yr routine will change as our eldest will be at school 5 days a wk.)
vacuum/mopping to be done once a week, assistance with some meals/washing, general tidying of children’s things.
You would have Friday’s and wkends off, and short work hours on Thursdays. On occasion I may require assistance with taking the big kids to activities like gym or dancing, on the Monday - Wednesday.
On special events if needed for extra baby sitting on a wkend or Friday night, time would be given free earlier in the wk to accommodate, but plenty of notice would be given. We are always happy to negotiate a Thursday off if needed for some extra travel on occasion.
Since we are both school teachers you have two wks vacation every 10 wks (school holidays), so we are happy to pay you half pay every holidays, and you can travel, or you are welcome to join us if we are going away on vacation for no pay (but get a holiday with food and accommodation included) and we would not expect you to be on child minding duty. Our au pair needs to be able to build a good trust with the kids and be proactive around the house and responsible. But also we would like our au pair to be able to communicate with us their needs and expectations of what they want out of the experience so we can accommodate them too. It needs to be a two way relationship.
