Letter to the family

Hi! I am a friendly nineteen year old who is looking to gain some experience with children and exposure to the French language. I enjoy looking after children and am experienced in this field. I also have proficient skills in cooking and cleaning. I attended a Montessori school as a child and so am also aware of this style of play.

I am British-Italian. My first nationality is British although I also have Italian citizenship meaning that I can work in the EU more easily. My first language is English. I am able to communicate at a familial level in Italian.

Experience

Most recently, between 2018-2021, I worked as a babysitter for a family with three children between the ages of 4-9. Here, I picked the children up from nursery and school, making sure they got home safely. I would then help with reading homework, prepare dinner and play games with/ provide cooking and craft activities for the children. Typically I would look after the three children for 2-3 hours at a time but I have also looked after them late at night when necessary, getting them ready for bed and reading them bedtime stories. In this role I also helped at large birthday parties and looked after the family cat when the family went on holiday.

Previously, between 2013-2019, I volunteered once a week for several hours at a youth club aimed at children between 7-11 years old. Initially, this meant leading games for the youngest children. Over time, I lead games and cooking activities for children of all ages attending the club.

I also have some experience with working with older children at a pastoral level through time i spent as a head of house (similar to a prefect) at my secondary school. In this role, I organised activities for inter-house competition. This includes sports competitions, talent shows, dances, and a play. The inter-house drama and competition were highly time consuming (consuming 4 lunch breaks and several hours after school per week), meaning that I was able to form good relationships with the young people in my house and an understanding of the various needs of different individuals of this age group.

Besides this, I am the eldest of three children and so have experienced helping with various responsibilities required to look after children from a young age.
