Child Care Experience
I babysat Bella (10) and Oscar (13) from February to March 2019 daily. I entertained the children, drove them to and from school, sports activities and play dates, I prepared meals, helped with homework and did light housework. I looked after Rebecca (6) and Rachael (8) from May 2017 to May 2019 occasionally. I prepared meals, kept the children entertained and helped with homework. I worked at an after school center from August to September 2019 working with children ages 6 to 9 years old. I helped the children with homework and played with them. From January 2015 to January 2017 I looked after Ysabella (8) occasionally. I entertained her, prepared meals, helped with homework, had her take a bath ad put her to bed. I also babysat Amy (11) and David (14) from January 2013 to January 2016 occasionally. I entertained them, helped with homework, prepared meals, had them take baths and go to bed.

I am very passionate about working with children and I've dreamed of the au pair cultural exchange program for a long time and want to turn that dream into a reality. I babysat a lot in my teen years, and had a taste of the au pair experience when I did so for 2 months. I took a course (TEFL) that also enlightened me in appropriate ways of approaching different situations with different children. I consider myself not only physically qualified, but also emotionally qualified for this program. I am by nature, an empathetic, caring, and cautious being. I look out for others and enjoy giving. My strength is definitely being people-oriented. Finally, I have experience with children with special needs.
