Child Care Experience
Currently, I babysit Declan (1) and Deanke (6) for 5 days a week and have done so since January 2019. This includes feeding them, changing Declan's diapers, playing with them, bathing them, and putting them down for naps. Since November 2018, I have watched Logan (2) about twice a week every month. This includes feeding him, changing him, bathing him, preparing meals for him, getting him to sleep, playing games with him, and reading to him. I also babysit Leane (3 mths) and have done so since January 2013 once or twice a week as needed. Now that she is older, my responsibilities include preparing lunch for her, helping her with her homework, playing with her, reading to her, bathing her, putting her to sleep, and doing arts & crafts with her. Finally, I worked at a nursery school with children ages 2 to 10 years old in July 2018 for 180 hours. This included helping with lunch time, reading to them, supervising their breaks, and entertaining them.
Sports, Interests and Hobbies
Looking after children, cooking, baking, being outdoors, swimming, being with friends & family, watching movies, getting to know people from different backgrounds & cultures, music, languages, netball, hockey, soccer, and swimming.
Firstly, as you can probably tell, I truly love being around children! It brings me a lot of joy and calmness. I think that I qualify for this program because of my abundance of experience, my love for children, and my trustworthy personality. I want to be an au pair because I have always loved getting to know people from different cultures and backgrounds and I want to get to know as many people as possible from all around the world. I want to travel America, get to know the many different cultures and experience life in one of the most wonderful countries. I want to form a strong bond with my host family and I want them to become my friends for life! Finally, I want to mention that I have experience taking care of children with special needs.
