Family's Introduction to Au Pair

Job Description

We live in Amsterdam, though I am American-British so our household speaks English very well. Ideally we would love an au pair to start in June 2018.

We are just finishing a year with our current au pair, which has gone very well.

Our biggest priorities for our next au pair are: - Native or fully fluent English speaker (as our children are still developing their language and need to have their English finely tuned, with small corrections given when they make mistakes) - A positive, kind person who genuinely loves little kids. - Someone with experience as an au pair, living away from home, caring for a family full time (its not for everyone!) :)

We live in Amsterdam, on Nieuwendammerdijk, north of centraal station (15 min bike+ferry ride away). We cycle almost everywhere but also have a car. Our neighbourhood is quiet and picturesque while at the same time extremely easy to get to the heart of Amsterdam via bike or bus. We un-humbly think we have the best of both worlds.

We live in a renovated and modernized old fisherman's cottage with 4 bedrooms, an extra playroom off of our au pair's bedroom, two bathrooms and three wc's. We are very proud of our house after taking two years to do the rennovation. We believe we have plenty of space so everyone will feel comfortable.

We are hoping to find an au pair who genuinely loves children, particularly toddlers as our three kids are so young.

Here is who we are:

Kit will be 4 in January and will start elementary school. He is a very energetic, goofy, loving child (so I think, of course, but I have had this confirmed by third parties).

Sorsha will be 2 in December. She is the most chilled out of all of us. Easy going toddler who generally sleeps very well. She will be in 'peuterspeelzaal' or playgroup 3 mornings per week, and creche the other two days per week.

Duncan will be 1 in March, he is a very sweet and chill baby.

Wiley is our 1 year old intrepid, sweet and relaxed cat. We live in a semi-rural area in Amsterdam so having a cat is pretty useful.

I (Laura) am 38 and work part-time in property in Amsterdam. I'm originally from the US but spent 14 years in Edinburgh and London before moving to the Netherlands 5 years ago.

Kris is 41, works in business development and is Dutch through and through. His English is perfect though so we speak English as a family mostly.
