Letter to the family

Hi ! I am looking for a family in Germany?? or Austria ?? ASAP . Hi - My name is Thato. I was born and raised in South Africa , and relocated to the US in 2020 straight after graduating from high school to pursue my venture as an au pair in America which recently came to an end and now I’ve decided to carry on elsewhere . I enjoy the many outdoor activities and consider myself very outdoorsy . I am also a creative person, so art (more specifically painting) have been a great outlet and passion. As a childcare provider, I enjoy sharing my love of travel , the outdoors and creativity with kids. I have over 3 years of child care experience including pre-school teaching assistant au pair in America for two beautiful girls who are 3.5 & 1y.o for 20 months and most recently au pair in Switzerland to two kiddos who are 7y.o & 10 y.o I think it's important to provide children with a fun, fulfilling and enriched environment. I am an enthusiastic and responsible person and look forward to meeting you and your kids!

Experience

Besides learning alot about children,their behaviour and how to help them in various ways , I'd say one of the most valuable things I've learnt about kids whilst working with them is the way they find joy in the smallest things whether it’s being intrigued by a beautiful pink butterfly or baking chocolate chip cookies their mood is always uplifted , I myself try to implement their strategy of enjoying the small things in life and not waiting till the end of the journey to celebrate the victories and it has definitely helped me in going further with much joy and refreshed determination towards my dreams and goals. The reason why I decided to become an au pair is not only because I love children and I love to travel but because I also love to watch them grow and flourish . My aim as an au pair is to encourage and help your kids blossom so that they can grow to their full potential . From my previous experiences I found that working with children has allowed me to express my creativity and imagination during play hence why I am so fond of helping children learn and grow, and the love I have received back from the children in my care is often worth much more than any paycheck.
