My name is Manuela and I am the mother of 4 girls: Zahra (12 years old), Sophia (10), Maila (4) and Alaia (1). We live in Munich Solln, which is a nice residential area of Bavaria’s capital. Prior, we have lived in Kenya for a year. All girls speak good English.
Zahra and Sophia attend a private school, which starts at 8:10 AM and ends at 4:30 PM. Maila is attending an English speaking Kindergarten, which ends around 4 PM. It is intended that Alaia also attends that Kindergarten in about 5 months.
The au-pair’s responsibility will largely be with Maila and Alaia.
I would suggest, that we discuss the split in responsibilities for the daily routines at the beginning and then discuss once a week (or whenever appropriate) possible adaptions/changes.Due to the long hours of school and Kindergarten, the au-pair would have significant free time during the day.
We live in a 6 room house with a garden. The au-pair would have her own large room with an adjacent bathroom, which would only from time to time be shared with guests.
The father of the children is also taking care of the girls from time to time.
Munich is a very safe but fun city. Our house can easily be reached by bus and train from Munich’s city center.
We would love to get to know you and discuss how you can live with us.
I am looking forward to hear from you.
Some additional informations about the work:
Some light housework should be done from all family members including the au-pair):
Sometimes to prepare an easy lunch (normaly done by the mother)
To prepare breakfast, fill and start the dishwasher,
To do light cleaning cores (if necessary; we have a cleaning lady 1-2-times a week)
To arrange the kid’s rooms including toys (should be together with the kids)
We are happy if the Au pair takes part in family vacations.
We are happy to pay for a language class.
Common working hours: max of 6 hours daily, no more than 30 hours weekly.
The aupair is invited to take part in the family life: Zoo visit, biking tours, walking, swimming, skiing,
Babysitting may from time to time be needed at the weekend.
We like to have meals together and use this time for communication and coordination.
