What are you looking for and expecting from an au pair? What will you expect from the au pair?
The reason for an Au Pair is to have an extra pair of hands and eyes for our little ones. Livia goes to primary school in Amersfoort and Bente goes to school in Zeist. Both schools starts and ends at the same time. So when they both stay with us it will be nice to have someone to bring Bente to school by bike. On days we only have Bente it is nice to have someone to stay with baby Sterre when Charotte picks Bente up from school. Also dinner time, bath and bed times can be busy. So around 17h00 to 19h30 an extra pair of hands are very welcome. We would like to have somebody at home to give a hand to all things concerning the children, take care of them when we have appointments outside the house and help with the housekeeping activities. Also we like to give other young people the possibility and opportunity to come to Holland for 12 months and explore the country and see what our habbits are in Holland. On the other hand we like other cultures, so we hope you can tell us a lot about your country, family and friends and more. We could learn from you. We are a very warm family and hope to make you feel a part of this family.We would like a cheerful personality who is patient, kind and loving to our children. It is important there is a good connection between our Au Pair and the kids. Someone who likes to play and spent time with them. Knowledge of how to deal with a young child and to take care of a baby would be great, like changing diapers and feeding a bottle. We hope you like pets, we have one small dog Mia. It would be great if you can feed her or go for a walk occasionally. Niels and Charlotte are very organized and we appreciate experience in cooking and housekeeping.
What fun things can the au pair do around town, and what can your family offer to the au pairs during the au pair experience?
In 2020 we bought our family home in Huis ter heide. This is a quit village with a lot of green from nature. It is beautiful to walk with the dogs at the park and forest. We live in the middle of The Netherlands, so it is a very central place. Nearby we have the cities: Amersfoort, Utrecht and Zeist. All the city facilities like cinema’s, nice shops, bar’s, schools, sport facilities etc. are 15 min away by car. By bike you can go to the supermarket and the train station in Den Dolder. By train you can explore a lot of cities and places like Amsterdam, The Hague, Volendam, the Windmills and a real Dutch cheese farm. You will have your own guesthouse at our garden with your own bathroom. Inside your room is a small kitchen that you can use for yourself if you want to. The room is fully furnished. There is a television and an internet connection with computer. You will have a lot of privacy in your own space. The guesthouse is close to our terrace to spent time outside and our heated swimming pool. As it is very common in the Netherlands to go on bike, there is a bike available for you.
