Child Care Experience
I watched Johan (7) from June 2012 to December 2014 on weekdays for 4 hours. This included helping him with his homework, preparing food for him, dropping him off and picking him up from school, and doing various activities with him. For around 20 hours per week, I babysat Valeria (5) from February 2015 to April 2016. My responsibilities included feeding her, taking her to the park with her dog, dropping her off and picking her up from kindergarten, playing with her, helping her with homework, and bathing her. From June to November 2016, I was responsible for watching Sara (11mths) for about 15 hours per week. I was in charge of preparing her bottle, taking her for walks, and doing things such as bathing her and changing her diaper. For 6 months in 2017, I watched Santiago (3mths) for 15 hours per week. I changed his diapers, fed him, dressed him, bathed him, and took him on walks. Finally, once a week from February to November 2013, I worked at a small school with kids 5 to 13 years old. This included helping them with homework, doing activities with them, and reinforcing what they learned.
Sports, Interests and Hobbies
Listening to music, dancing, reading, researching animals, riding bikes, spending time with my family, pets, and family.
I want to be an au pair because I like to work with children, I have the patience and ability to live with them, and I would also like to take advantage of this to improve my English fluency and vocabulary. It also seems like a great opportunity to learn about new cultures. I feel qualified to participate in this program because I really like children, I am very interested in them, I have a great connection with them, and I would love to continue learning from them every day.
