Welcome Letter to the Au Pair


We are a mixed couple, I am Kate, an American (teacher and current MA student) and my husband is Yutaka Japanese (Marketing). We have two boys Nagisa (6 in August) and Akira 3.5. We speak English at home, but there are plenty of opportunities to speak Japanese as well. The boys currently go to school during the day, but since I have 2 years of school left we would like someone around to help us. We have our au pair until May and we would love someone to start mid-May for 6-9 months! MUST BE ABLE TO GET TO JAPAN AND HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE.

I am studying International Education (focusing on high school exchanges) and my husband and I both studied abroad in high school staying with host families. We are strong believers in the cultural benefits of living with a host family. We also want to expose our children to various cultures. We enjoyed our last au pair and looking for another member of our family! We need help with the boys while I finish grad school and also are happy to have a host member of the family.

Thank you,

Job Description

We want someone who is willing to be immersed within the family. We want to expose our boys to the value and joy of intercultural exchange. The boys will be in school most days, but we would like to help to get them to/from school and to their weekly activities. Babysitting when I am at work or school/studying and the boys are home. You will be expected to help around the house when possible related to childcare, and keep your room and communal areas clean. It is important that our au pair is punctual, organized, able to multitask and understand the complexities of running a household. We need an au pair who can see what needs to be done without being told. As my husband and I have hectic schedules, we need someone independent and reliable. Ideally, someone who can drive, speak basic Japanese and has experience with children is preferred. If you cannot drive you will need to ride a bike. As my schedule is changing due to course work, we need someone we can trust and is flexible. Thank you! Please feel free to email if you have any questions.

We have a full-sized guest room upstairs (Japanese 6 tatami mat size) with a nice sized closet. It is attached to the roof terrace where our outside cats. We live in northwest Tokyo on the Seibu Shinjuku line. It is a lovely neighborhood close to major centers, but not so crowded (it is residential but with everything you would need. We are about a 10-minute walk to the station. The house is a good size and there is plenty of room for another addition to help enrich our family.
