Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear future Au Pair

Our family is in need of some help with childcare and we have always been interested in other countries and cultures. Therefore we feel an Au Pair would be perfect for us. We would love to welcome a young woman from another country into our home, show her Switzerland and the Swiss culture, and learn about where you are from, while we share the childcare and light household duties amongst us.
We are a family of four: Dad working full time as a nurse anaesthetist at a hospital in Zurich, Katja is a midwifery student, and Anja, aged 7 starts first grade in August, and Vera is starting her 2nd year of Kindergarten in August.

We live an a small town on lake Zurich, in a house near the forest. There is public transportation not too far from the house, and it takes only 15 minutes by train to reach Switzerlands biggest city: Zurich. Zurich is a wonderful city, with bars, clubs, restaurants, museums, parks a plenty and a lot to discover. You can see the mountains from where we live, and some skiing areas are just an hour drive away. The lake is warm enough to swim in in the summer.

Language schools are available in the surrounding towns and of course in Zurich.

Job Description

As Michael is working full time and Katja will start studying in September, we need someone to help us take care of our girls, e.g. in the mornings, if both parents need to leave for work/university before the kids leave for school, 2 full afternoons a week, and some hours here and there until everybody is back home.
We will be expecting you to be able to cook a simple meal, get the girls ready for school, making sure homework is done (you don't need to help necessarily), accompanying girls to play dates or leisure activities, picking up from school. In the household you might have to help with chores like vacuuming, tidying up, folding laundry. You will most likely not have to do any grocery shopping etc.
A drivers license would be preferable and some driving experience excellent, in case you will need to drive the girls somewhere were walking is too far, or public transport not available.
