Family's Introduction to Au Pair

Dear au pair, We are a German-Chilean family with a two-year old daughter. We both work for international nature conservation organisations and we try our best to live as sustainably as we can. We for example do not eat meat (or only in exceptions). At home, we each speak our mother tongue with Aurora and we speak English to each other for this reason Aurora understands (and begins to speak) German, Spanish Dutch and English. Whenever possible we enjoy traveling and the great outdoors (or whatever version of nature we can find nearby). In summer we enjoy going to the beach, wild swims and pick nicks. We practice yoga, football and love surfing. We live in a typical Dutch house from the 1930s with a small, but sunny garden in a village-like part of Amsterdam - and yet only an easy 10 minutes away by bus or bike from Amsterdam Central. We have very nice neighbors; commercial centers and natural parks and many nice playgrounds close by. Our daughter goes to daycare 4 days/week from 8:30 - 17:30. We eat dinner at 6:00 and at 7:30 it's bedtime. I stay at home one day in the week with our daugher and on the weekend we like to do activities or outings together (preferably going outside and into nature, be it the beach or camping in the woods). We try to raise our daughter in a way that encourages her to find her own ways, make her own mistakes (within limits – we are of course responsible for her safety and wellbeing) and make her own decisions – as much as that’s possible for a two-year old) We both enjoy yoga and sports and typically take one 'date night' a week and one (or sometimes) two nights where we go out independently to exercise or meet with friends. Principally, we are looking for support with looking after our little Aurora when we are away – for work and particularly during the times when one of us is travelling for work - and for someone, who can be another loving person in her life, part of our family, and ideally support her Spanish language development (though we will also consider candidates with fluent German, English, or Dutch. We love to be creative and lead an active, engaged life and are curious what you would bring to our family... We are looking forward to hearing from you.

Job Description

Principally, we are looking for support with looking after our little Aurora when we are away – for work and particularly during the times when one of us is travelling for work.

In a typical week, this would mean to help with the morning routine and bringing our daughter to daycare and picking her up. Once you return home, we would appreciate you helping with putting the house in order (cleaning up the breakfast table, stacking or emptying the dishwasher, maybe hanging up some laundry). The daycare is close by and all in all that should not be more then 2 hours/morning. In the evening, picking up our daughter from daycare and babysitting one or two evenings and the occasional morning. The most important for us is that the times with our daughter will be opportunities to share nice moments and experiences and to bond. We are looking forward to sharing our home with you much as one would with a family member – for us this means sharing meals and taking basic responsibilities for our shared home and the good functioning of our lives in it. You will have a large sunny room on the third floor of our house with a washbasin in the room (the office) next to yours, so you would only have to share our bathroom fort he shower. We live with our daughter on the second floor, which should give us each some privacy and space. Of course all responsibilities will be discussed and agreed jointly. We want of course that you feel calm and clear about your roles and responsibilities and happy during your time with us.
