Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hello! Thank you for reading our profile.
We are new to the au pair experience but are excited about welcoming someone into our family, to share with them the wonderful city we live in and our home.

We have two happy kids who (for the most part!) enjoy each others company and are great fun to be around.

We are looking for someone caring who enjoys spending time with children to help look after them. There are not too many hours required and so would also be open to external study or even a part time job if you preferred.

Job Description

There will be approximately 22 hours a week required -
plus 1 nights babysitting a week (the night will vary)

As a guide to approximate working hours:
Mon – Weds 7.30am - 9am and 3pm- 6.30pm and occasional Fridays: 10am - 2.30pm

We might ask you to help for a few hours during the day on some weekends. Never both days in one weekend.

We offer a generous package and use of a car for drop offs and pick ups.

Your key responsibilities during your stay with us will be:

- In the mornings help me with giving the kids breakfast; preparing lunch boxes, teeth brushing, bags packed etc.
- Driving the children to school, settling them in school
- Help with preparing and cooking nutritious meals
- Light housework daily, to include kids' laundry, cleaning & sweeping the kitchen after each of the kids’ meals, tidying children’s rooms and play area and generally keeping the house in order. (We have a weekly cleaner to do the heavy load). We are naturally clean & tidy people & I would hope that our au pair would be too. With two kids, the house can easily turn upside down in an instant. The play area especially needs daily tidying -we ask that the children tidy away their own things they have played with but they do need assistance and motivation!
- In the afternoons picking the children up from school; taking our son to his after school activities

- When the children are home from school, unpacking school bags, playtime, homework, prepare dinner, baths and on babysitting nights putting the kids to bed.

Children do need boundaries as well as plenty of cuddles, so we need you to be able to guide them with positive discipline and to maintain authority when they're mischievous! We use reward systems in order to encourage good behaviour and try to avoid negative discipline.

Above all, the most important thing for us is the happiness and well-being of our children. We would like our au pair to have had childcare experience and have a genuine love of children. Someone who is fun and kind and content to spend hours outdoors or equally happy doing arts & crafts at home. You need to be responsible, honest and reliable, patient and kind.

Please only apply if you are over 21 and have a drivers licence, thank you.

We live in a two storey house and our bedrooms and the kids play area is upstairs, leaving the au pair space downstairs so you would have a lot of privacy with a large, sunny bedroom with sofa, TV and wifi as well as a bathroom which is pretty much yours but for the kids evening baths.
