Dear Au Pair
I’m Mireille, Philip is my husband and Mathilde and Charles are our twins aged 4 years 1/2.
We live in Vandoeuvres, a small town very close to Geneva. Vandoeuvres contains residential houses, several commercials area within 10 minutes walk, a post office and a bus stop 2 minutes from the house, with a bus every 15 minutes to go to Geneva downtown. The lake of Geneva is very close and the whole area is very pretty.
Our house has 4 bedrooms. It has a good size garden and a swimming pool.
I am currently working a few days per month as psychologist and I usually travel during three days every four weeks to Paris. When I am away my husband stays at home in order that one of the parent is always present at least at night.
We are looking for an Au Pair to help with our children. Someone with a genuine interest in childcare and a good level of English – so that communication is not a problem. We are French but our children have used English since they were born, having always had English speaking nurses and nannies.
A typical day would be:
Getting the children up and ready for school, waiting for the school bus, helping sometimes with light housework (we have a lady taking care of the house), waiting for the children till they return from school, and playing with them until bath and dinner time.
This is a maximum of 30 to 35 hours per week. The free time during the day will enable you to attend a language school – there are language classes in Vesenaz or Cologny just 10 minutes away. Driving is not important at all the Geneva transportation network is very good.
For you help we will provide you with full bed and board. Your bedroom is a double room close to the children playroom, which has an en-suite shower and toilet. You will share this bedroom 5 days a week with our housekeeper who is a very well educated 36 years old lady from the Philippines. We will reimburse the transportation monthly fees and will pay SFR 400 pocket money a week
I hope that my letter provide you with an insight to our family. There is much more to tell. If you think you might like to come to our family please let me know. I’m happy to answer any questions that you might have.
I look forward to hearing from you.
