Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear Au Pair

We are a single-mom family with three boys and one nice cat. The oldest is ten years old, the middle 9 years and the youngest is five. We love music and horses and live just 10 minutes (by train) from the city center of Zurich. We eat vegan (but are okay with other food), do not smoke and drink and still have a lot of fun. We are bilingual English - German, the mom is also fluent in Swedish and a language teacher for English and German.

Our semi-detached house is located in a residential area, yet we are only a six-minute walk away from the next train station. There is an ice-skating rink as well as two public pools in our town. You have your own furnished room and bathroom (shower). Of course you get to use our own laundry room and our yard, too.

Mom teaches from Monday to Thursday. The sons are in kindergarten/school every morning from Monday to Friday. All kids also have school on some afternoons, generally they are all home on Wednesday afternoons. The two older sons take music lessons (drums, piano) and need occasional help with their homework.

The kids love Lego, listening to music (Iron Maiden, etc.), and looking at books as well as drawing. All boys are potty-trained and can express their needs in English and German.

If you have further questions, just ask :-)

Kind regards

Arlette H.D.
