Letter to the family

Dear host family,

My names Jack and I'm a 21 year old international relations student at the University of Exeter. I have a passion for working with children and considerable experience, and it is this that has led me to apply to work as an au pair (hopefully with your family).

I want to become an au pair because I truly believe that I have the personality and temperament that fits such a role. I know that as a male I'm somewhat of an anomaly but hopefully my wealth of experience in babysitting and working as a camp counselor in America over the past three years will show that I'm more than up for the task of working as an au pair. As a babysitter I've looked after primarily my families children, the youngest of whom is now 3 (I've looked after him since he was 6 months) and the oldest 9. However the majority of my experience comes from working at a summer camp in the United States which I've done every summer since 2017. My role here is to be responsible for a cabin of between 4-7 boys who in my time at the camp have always been aged 7-11. I act in loco parents to the boys in my cabin and am completely responsible for their wellbeing. If they are homesick they come to me, if their sad they come to me etc. A promotion at my camp shifted my position so that I became the on call person at nightime for over 120 boys aged 7-15 and a staff of 35. This role gave me much more responsibility but also meant I had to deal with some pretty challenging circumstances ranging from aggressive behavior from certain children to personal problems that some of the boys occasionally had. My experience at the camp has definitely provided me with a comprehensive understanding of how to look after children.

Experience

These are crazy times and my main ambition whilst working as an au pair is to be as much of a help to your family as I can be. I want to be like a big brother to the children I help look after. As an only child I have wanted siblings my whole life and I can promise to treat your children as just that. My aim is to be fun, trustworthy and reliable and I know I am capable of just that.
