Letter to the family

My name is Chelsea and I am a 27 year old British girl from the highlands of Scotland. I have a huge love for the Netherlands and have visited many times since I was young - I know little bits of Dutch and I am keen to improve this!

I am looking for a position that will allow my long-term boyfriend to come over to the Netherlands and live with me. His name is Alex and he is 22. I have been teaching him the little Dutch that I know and he would happily find work and contribute to household bills whilst also, of course, contributing to household chores or childcare if at all required. Alex is an experienced shop floor manager and he has a great passion and many years experience in caring for his younger cousins and siblings, which includes administering medication frequently to his younger brother who is diabetic. We currently live in an apartment owned by my parents, on their property, and we are extremely organised, tidy and happy together.

I currently work in a secondary school with 12 year old twin boys who have autism and are non-verbal. Because of my experience in working with special needs children, this is something I'd happily consider. I have an Advanced Autism Awareness diploma, and a Special Educational Needs and Disabilities diploma plus experience in intimate personal care. I have full police checks and have completed ongoing training related to this role.

My mother worked as a childminder from our family home since myself and my brother were very little, so I am extremely used to a wide range of children of all different ages and personalities. I frequently babysit for my 3 year old niece from newborn to now and I know every episode of Peppa Pig off by heart! I am a great believer in being firm but fair, and I enjoy the outdoors (and can use a bakfiets).

I have many years experience in cleaning to a high standard and I love to cook. I speak a little Dutch and I am experienced in travelling the country having been a house-sitter in Breda, The Hague and Houten. All in all I feel very comfortable and at home in the Netherlands, and would love to have a cultural experience there to improve my language skills and enjoy the wonderful country.

I am currently completing a 120 hour TEFL course which will enable me to teach English as a foreign language to all ages. I would be very interested in becoming a free language tutor or homework help for your children's English lessons in exchange for a few minutes assistance with Dutch each day. I am also open to babysitting and helping out over weekends if this is arranged in advance.

I appreciate these circumstances are a little unique, but I feel we have a lot of love and experience to offer the right family so if this might be you please do get in touch.

Hoping to speak with some of you soon!
Love, Chelsea :)
