Letter to the family

Hello, I am a 19 year old from Scotland who is currently studying HND Travel and Tourism. This is my final year of study and I will have finished the course by the end of June 2020.
My expectations from the role of an Au Pair include me carrying out tasks such as cooking for the children, general house keeping, driving kids to and from school and other activities, organising a schedule for the children to ensure they have completed all tasks necessary such as completing school work. I would ensure the children have options of fun activities that are appropriate to their age group and that will aid their learning development.
From my Au Pair family, I would hope to feel like a part of the family. I would be overjoyed to be welcomed into your family. I would expect a fair work/life balance that would give me time to complete any personal tasks that I may need to complete. I would expect a space where I can spend any free time I may have and a suitable space where I can store my belongings. I would hope that my family would be able to teach me the culture of their home country as I am always keen and willing to learn.

Experience

I have had experience in caring for younger family members such as my cousins, nephews and siblings. I have many younger family members and I have regularly been left with the children in my care and during this time I done things such as provided healthy meals, arranged enjoyable activities to occupy the children. It was very important to to me that all of these activities were planned and carried out around the children completing activities such as their homework and and extra curriculum activities. I have also volunteered for the boys club, Beavers and helped to organise and carry out fun and educational activities. During my time there, I taught the children things such as the Green Cross Code, the importance of Stranger Danger and the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. I made sure that the methods I used to teach these things were fun and appropriate to the children's ages to keep them engaged. Other forms of experience I have in childcare include buddying younger students in school assisting them with art and crafts projects, reading and counting. I worked hands on with three children at one time for one year, one of which included a child with additional needs. I also currently work in a private nursery caring for children aged 0-5. I carry out duties such as serving meals, feeding babies, changing nappies and preparing and implementing activities for the children. I also support children during their nap time.
