Child Care Experience
From January 2018 to 2019, weekly as needed, I cared for Janel (9 mths). This included bathing him, feeding him, changing his diapers, making bottles for him, and playing with him. Additionally, I was responsible for Jayden (7) and Mianke (5) on weekends from March 2017 to 2019. I helped both of them with homework, prepared meals for them, played with them, and supervised them while they were swimming. From August to September 2018, I watched Christian (4), weekly, as needed. I provided general care for him, prepared meals for him, kept him busy with educational toys, and did activities that corresponded to his age. Finally, from December 2018 to January 2019, I watched Anna-Bella (6) and Reuben (3) daily. My responsibilities included making them breakfast, getting them dressed, playing with them, preparing dinner for them, and putting them to bed. From January 2018 until November 2019, I have watched Philip (1) about twice a week. This includes playing with him, getting him dressed, and feeding him. Additionally, for the month of November 2019, I cared for Leah-Mare (9 weeks) about once a week. I give her a bottle, put her to sleep, and provide care for her. Finally, in October 2019, I babysat Janel (2) for about 8 hours a day for an entire week. I played with her, bathed her, changed her diapers, fed her, and put her to sleep.
Sports, Interests and Hobbies
Being outdoors, camping, fishing, watching & playing sports, and field hockey.
To go abroad as an au pair has been a dream of mine for several years now, mainly because I think it would be a great experience prior to studying to become a teacher. I absolutely love looking after children and being part of their development. I would describe myself as reliable, friendly, positive, and open-minded. I am excited about the possibility of discovering a new country and meeting new people. I am so excited for this new chapter in my life and cannot wait to learn more about my new host siblings.
