Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Originally translated from Deutsch
Hello dear future au pair,
we are a liberal, down-to-earth and warm-hearted family. We are Chris (34), Svenja (33), Leon (8) and Milan (5). We also have 7 chickens and 4 rabbits living in our garden. But now we would like to introduce ourselves to you “personally”.

We live on the outskirts of a small town (30,000 inhabitants), between Mönchengladbach (25 minutes) and Aachen (50 minutes). Düsseldorf and Roermond (NL) are 35 minutes away. School, kindergarten, swimming pool, football pitch and supermarkets are within a 1.5km radius. The nearest language school is in Erkelenz (VHS). There is public transport (bus and small train to Mönchengladbach), but a driving license would certainly be an advantage. We have 2 cars, which you can use after consulting us. It would also be great if you could ride a bike, there are many cycle paths and beautiful excursion destinations here.

Job Description

Originally translated from Deutsch
We need your help mainly Monday - Friday in the morning and afternoon. In the evenings and on the weekends you would usually be free, but we would be happy if you still spent time together with your new family and took part in our activities and excursions. Eating together is important to us and it would be nice if you could join us on the weekend too. Sometimes we will ask you if you can babysit, perhaps even if Svenja is working on the weekend.

Your tasks include preparing breakfast for the two boys, having breakfast with them and then taking them to school/kindergarten. It would be great if you then cleaned up the breakfast utensils (fill the dishwasher and wipe the table). Then you have a break until you pick up Milan and Leon from school at 11:30/12:30, cook lunch and eat it together with Leon and Milan (and maybe Chris too). Sometimes Leon is very exhausted from school and needs a bit of rest and time for himself. Homework should start by 2:00 p.m. at the latest. It would be great if you accompanied Leon and Milan to his appointments (soccer and music school) on Mondays and Wednesdays (drop them off and pick them up). We'll have to see how that works out in terms of time. For a better overview, we would like to discuss the following week's appointments with you on Sundays.
You could, for example, take a language course in the evenings at the adult education center in Erkelenz or Heinsberg (e.g. 2 evenings per week).

We live in a modern and bright detached house (240sqm) with underfloor heating and a large garden (1,100sqm). The center is the large living and dining room with an open kitchen and adjoining terrace. On the ground floor there is an office for Chris, your private room (17sqm) and a shower room with a window, which is used by everyone in the house during the day. Upstairs there is a piano, 2 children's rooms, a bedroom, a creative room for Svenja and a master bathroom. Luckily we have a cleaning lady who cleans everything twice a week, but it would still be nice if you kept your room clean yourself. WiFi everywhere.
