Experience

For a year I worked in the Dean's office of my faculty as a specialist in teaching and methodical work. I learned a lot about the pedagogical structure of the university from the inside. It was a very interesting work.
I really like babysitting and tutoring. My first experience in childcare was in the summer with 20 children (15 girls and 5 boys at the age of 6 years), when I was 17 years old. I worked in a kindergarten. We spent 3 weeks together. I was a tutor's assistant. We played a lot in the open air, I read books to them, I arranged various creative competitions, put them to bed in the daytime. It was fun and unforgettable!
My second experience in childcare was with pupils of the orphanage (17 children of 4 and 6 years of age, 9 boys and 8 girls). We spent 4 months together. Then I went to school and created a volunteer organization to help these kids. I went to them 4 times a week. I formed a musical ensemble of kiddies, I taught them to play on a xylophone. I can play the piano, and we learned new songs. I formed a theater group and helped the kids prepare for the New Year celebration. We staged the play «New Year» together with other volunteers, I also conducted culinary lessons with children. Together we cooked cookies, set the table. The children were so happy!! Joy in the eyes of children is the best reward for your work.

My third experience in childcare was with the sons of my colleague. Danil is 6 years old, and Denis is 2 years old. We walked together, I took them to the kindergarten, I cooked them breakfast and dinner. They love my pancakes :) We also watched cartoons together, played ball. Twice a week, I took Danila to sambo. We spent 7 months together. Danil and Denis are amazing active children.

My fourth experience in childcare was with 2 kids (girl – 7,5 years old, boy – 9 years old). I was an au pair in the US. Together we spent 3 months. My duties included prepare breakfast, set the table, wake the children, watch them breakfast, wash and brush their teeth; make the beds, help with the choice of clothes for the school, make braid for girl, take the kids to school by car, pick up the kids from school, take them to activities (tennis, golf), help with homework, help with playing the piano, help pick up the backpack in school, laundry for kids 2 times a week, prepare dinner for children, set with the children the table, help the children clean the tray after the cat and fill the bowl with food, play with the children (at home and out), watch movies and cartoons, control the taking of a shower, read a book before they going to bed, grocery shopping, unload the dishwasher. It was an amazing experience of living and working in another country. Unforgettable emotions and wonderful children!! In addition to working with children, I also improved my English and driving skills.

My fifth experience in childcare was as a nanny in the family with a 2-year-old a girl Nonna. Together we spent 8 months (4 times a week). I fed her, put her to bed, cooked baby soups, puree, fruit juice, and walked with her. Nona is an inquisitive and very cheerful girl.

Сurrently I am an Au Pair in the Netherlands in a lovely British host family and take care of a 2-year-old girl Harriet (this program is for 1 year and will end in March ).
The Netherlands is the most cycling country in the world, and this is it where I learned to ride a bike. Every day, regardless of the weather, I drive Harriet to the kindergarten and pick her up on the bike as well. We walk at the park, on the playgrounds (she likes swings), draw a lot, I read books to her, play hockey on the floor, with a ball, and also we play a lot with Peppa Pig and her «family» (this is her favorite character). I prepare dinner for Harriet, she likes following a process :) We have dinner with a host family, I help clean up after dinner, wash the dishes, take out the trash. Then I prepare everything for the child’s sleep (warm milk, water for a night, pajamas, a diaper), bathe her and put her to bed. Grocery shopping is also my responsibility.
I feel part of this family, and we are very close. We travel together (Germany, Portugal, the Netherlands), watch movies and have fun outdoors. Harriet is just an angel. She always joyfully shouts «Saaashaaa» when I pick her up from the kindergarten, and runs to meet me. We just love spending time together.

I have successfully completed American Safety & Health Institute Pediatric CPR, AED, and First Aid for Children and Infant class in New York in 2018.
