Welcome Letter to the Au Pair


We are a family of 4, my husband (m35), myself (f33) and our two boys (m3 and m1).

We live 10minutes walk from the centre of Watford with a shopping mall, cinema, bowling alley and lots of restaurants. Less than 5 minutes walk away is West Herts College which has a whole host of different courses available including languages as well as a local sports centre with a gym, swimming pool, exercise classes, rock climbing wall etc. 5mins away in the other direction lies Cassiobuy Park with extensive green fields, cafes, playgrouds, woodland and paddling pools. And best of all we are 10minutes walk from Watford Junction train station which runs trains which take only 15mins to London Euston from where you can access all of the amenities of London.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Job Description

We would provide you with access to a shared car and need you to look after our eldest in the morning for an hour getting him ready for school before walking him for a 9am start, where he stays until 3pm. At 3pm we would need you to collect him and drive him over to our childminder (who is 10mins drive away), where his younger brother would be as well. We expect this to take a around 2hrs a day

During the day we would like you to do some light organisation/tidying tasks in the house e.g. clearing the children's bedrooms, making beds, putting toys away in the study, picking up shoes and coats in the hallway. We except this to take around 1 hr per day but can be done to fit around your plans. Cleaning tasks will not be necessary as we have a cleaner.

Then we would like you to help at bedtime routine for around an hour in the evening on weekdays. This totals 4 hours a day (Mon-Fri) so 20hrs a week. On the weekend on a Saturday morning we would like you to take the boys to their local football class assuming they have restarted and if not for a walk to the park for a couple of hours.

There may also be additional opportunities for babysitting but this would be sorted out separately.
