Letter to the family

Dear future host family,
I am Claudia and currently residing in the wonderful city of Cape Town (South Africa). I grew up both in the city as well as on a farm, so I am familiar with both and love both (each has its own perks). I used to stay in Durban which is known as one of the warmest places to be but in 2020 I moved to Stellenbosch to study, although I already had been very independent this has taught me to be more independent as I was far from home. I grew up in a loving home and I have 4 older siblings.

I view myself as a responsible and mature person with a caring personality, and those close to me will most definitely agree with me. I am an outgoing person and adapt easily to a new environment, although I am an extrovert, I will only fully be myself If I am comfortable with my environment.

I love helping others where I can and am quite organized, I am great with time management and will always try my utmost best to keep to a deadline, I love planning but also always allow a bit of flexibility for myself as I know things might change. I have a very humorous side as I grew up in a household where ‘dad jokes’ was prominent, so I automatically adapted to that lifestyle, although I love jokes, I also know when to be more serious and am quite good at reading the room.

I believe having a healthy balance is quite important, especially in a childcare environment, each age group has different approaches, so it is always important to keep the age group in mind and because I’ve been exposed to a variety of age groups, I believe that I have a good understanding of what is age-appropriate and how to deal with the different age groups.

I love baking and cooking and have especially enjoyed baking with the children I Au Pair for and with my cousins, I also have a crafty side and try to implement it in fun activities with the children. I love the outdoors and love being active and try to make time for it, I currently play Field Hockey for a club. I also love reading and like to stay up to date on world news and am quite good at research. I absolutely love exploring and going on new adventures and spending time with family and friends.

Experience

I am currently an Aupair for a family of 5 in my home country, I’m looking after a 7 year old boy, 3 year old girl and 4 month old baby girl. I also have a lot of informal childcare experience with ages from newborn up until teenage years. I’d love to become an Aupair abroad as I believe it is a great way to explore a new area whilst still doing what I enjoy.
