Welcome Letter to the Au Pair


We live in Vancouver, a city blessed with breathtaking views, incredible wildlife, and awe-inspiring scenery. Can you believe it? A big, busy city with a bustling life surrounded by more natural richness than any other city!
Our home is located in Kitsilano, a vibrant, family-friendly neighborhood right beside two stunning beaches: Kitsilano beach and Jericho beach (you can see sea lions there). A few minutes by bicycle, and you can paddle, play beach volley, tennis, and basketball or just have a picnic on the beach! Do you feel like having a relaxing day? Get cozy in a coffee shop, indulge your cravings tasting the scrumptious dishes Vancouver restaurants offer. Weekend plans? It’s hard to choose: go whale watching, meet new friends while hiking on stunning mountains, treat yourself with some downtown shopping, go to the theatre, get mesmerized by the botanical gardens… Right in front of our home, there's a bus stop, from which you can easily explore the city and go downtown. Fantastic restaurants, shops, and grocery stores are within walking distance.
Parks surround our area, perfect for playground time or for some yoga, tennis, pilates, ...

Job Description

Ideally, we will need help 35-40 hours a week (Monday-Friday, mainly afternoons, plus Saturday morning). Saturday afternoon and Sunday are free to explore and go on an adventure. Nights are always free, so no need to help with bathtime or bedtime.

Time with Ocean will include quiet time (playtime in his playroom, reading, pretend play,…), great adventures on the beach, at the playground, at the pool! Wear a swimming costume if you are heading to the water park! You can use a Rad bike when you are with Ocean (fast, safe, easy to “park”)

We are a vegan/vegetarian family, so no meat/fish in the house.
We ask you to respect quiet time after Ocean's bedtime (meaning no loud calls, music, loud tv after 8 pm).
Absolutely NO smoking, NO drugs.
No strangers in the house.
No alcohol.

We expect you to understand, learn and follow our educational approach. We have a few very important guidelines and rules we will share, and that must be absorbed and respected. (For example: all the emotions are ok in our home, and we talk about how we feel to handle tantrums. Yelling is never ok. We never punish, but some behaviors have consequences. Routine is pivotal and tantrums require empathy first. Very limited tv time, but long reading hours!).

You are expected to clean after yourself (and Ocean) and keep your room and bathroom clean. No cleaning services required in the house. Francesca will do most of the cooking.

Please, while you are with Ocean we ask you to use your phone only for important calls, google maps, info, etc. No social media, chats, calls to friends. Ocean is 4 and as fast as a squirrel!

Family Description

We are a family of three. Tommaso and Francesca are originally from Italy, while Ocean was born in Vancouver in 2018. We are very easy-going and love to spend time outside, shine or rain!
Tommaso and Francesca lived and worked in many countries and decided to finally settle down in Vancouver, where they are running a coffee shop close to UBC. Tommaso loves photography (he has a YouTube channel and teaches street photography). Francesca likes cooking, hiking, and finding new projects to encourage Ocean's curiosity.
Ocean is VERY ACTIVE and has a lot of stamina! He could spend hours fighting a scary t-rex, searching for sunken treasures, defeating dragons, overcoming challenges you could never imagine. Dancing, singing, and reading make time fly by. He's self-confident, funny, and a real sweet-heart. Iceskating, swimming, dancing, gymnastics will be on your to do list with Ocean.
