Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear Au Pair

Our current au pair is going home to pick up her studies and now I hope to find another Child Minder. I need help looking after my daughter and with some light housework. I am looking for a Child Minder to Marlies (responsible adult) and to become another member of our family. My wife has passed away in January 2018 after a long battle with cancer.

My name is Dimitri is 59 years old and works as a Head of IT in London.
We live in a five bedroom house in Winchester with my daughter Marlies who is 12 years old and goes to the local secondary school, which is 15 minutes, walk from our home.

Marlies is a lively girl and likes to go swimming and scouting once a week and i would like you to take her to the swimming club when needed.

We would like you to help us in our home for with light housework and some ironing (Marlies her school shirts and skirts).
You will have most weekends free and we will pay you £100 per week pocket money, which we will give to you every Friday or pay into a bank account if that is more appropriate

Winchester City is the old capital of England and has a lot of historic sites as well as beautiful country side, there are other child minders and au pairs close by. There is also a good language school 15 minutes bus drive and we will encourage you to go for lessons there to learn English.

In the city centre there are many pubs and clubs full of young people, lots of shops. On occasions we will attend church and you are more than happy to join us.

There is also a bus stop 300 metres from our house with direct access into Winchester city centre and the train station where you can get to London in 1 hour. The bus goes every 10 minutes during the day.

You will have your own bedroom and share the family bathroom with Marlies and I.

We will pay your bus pass which you can use traveling in and around Winchester. We might require you to baby-sit at times for which will pay you £6 per hour.

We do not smoke.

We need our Child Minder to start with us sometime in April or May until for about three months.

We are a fun loving, fairly relaxed family looking for a kind hearted fun child minder to mix in with our family.

We look forwards to you being our child minder.

Yours sincerely

Dimitri and Marlies
