Letter to the family

Hello!
My name is Sofia, I am 23 and I'm from Vermont (USA). I spent most of 2020 working as an AuPair in Switzerland, I had a wonderful experience and am inspired to find another family to work with! I have been taking care of children for many years and I feel it is one of the things that makes me happiest. I think it is a great way to travel and for everyone to learn about different cultures and make meaningful connections. My late grand-mère was able to come to America from Switzerland by becoming an AuPair so it is a family tradition! I was already an AuPair during Covid and I think it is very important to always be aware and careful about that, while still being able to enjoy life! (I am vaccinated!) I am very flexible with what the arrangement could be, so please let me know what works best!

Experience

I have been looking after children for many years, since I was 13 or 14. I spent 2020 working as an AuPair in Switzerland looking after 3 children ages 1, 5 and 7. After my year there, I feel I learned so much more about working with children and I am even more excited to continue. I spent most of my time with the baby girl who was just over a year old when I started with the family. I spent many full days alone with her and with the boys as well, coordinating school, naps meals, homework and play time. I was also responsible for most of the housework including laundry and cooking and I was able to balance these different responsibilities while still giving the children the care they needed. Through our time together I helped the kids learn English often with fun games and activities. It was amazing watching the kids grow up for that period of time, especially seeing them all start speaking English. After leaving Switzerland and working in other industries I realized I miss working with children so I am excited to find another family to work for and learn from!
