Letter to the family

Hi, I'm Allison, I am a 19 year old girl with lots of childcare experience who is looking to see a new part of the world! I am open-minded, driven and love to meet new people. I'm patient with kids and I am an excellent communicator. I know it's important to discuss boundaries and expectations and I will do my best to understand your parenting style and the needs of your family.

My experience is mostly with younger children, I'm good at engaging kids in play and I always try to keep them active and smiling. I love being absolutely goofy with kids and making them laugh.

I'm bilingual, so I can interact with the family in French, in English or both. I'm also competent in Spanish and would be able to live with a Spanish-speaking family but I'm hoping to live with a French speaking family or in a francophone country so that I can improve my French.

I'm not necessarily expecting to find a francophone family in Turkey or the UK but it would be nice, and I would be happy to talk to the kids in English and have some occasional conversations in French with the parents. Starting to learn a new language (Turkish, Russian, Arabic, German, Dutch) would be a plus too.

Experience

Most of my childcare experience is with children ages 1 to 9; if you're interested in me as a candidate I can provide references.

My work taking care of children began at 14 when I would babysit for families in the neighborhood. In High School I started working several hours a week for one particular family, watching their adorable two year old son in the afternoons. After several months I had earned enough to pay for a trip to France where I lived with a family with three young children and helped take care of them for one month during the summer of 2018. Since then I found a job as a nanny/babysitter, watching a 3 year old girl with whom I spoke mostly in French. I worked about 14 to 20 hours a week taking care of her and held the position for about 8 months. That job ended in late March due to the pandemic.

Some families want their children to learn English from a native speaker and all a young child needs to learn a language is to regularly engage with someone who speaks to them in that language. That is how I learned French, I went to a public school with a French immersion program in which the children learn by being immersed in the language, which is the most effective way. I want to continue to improve my French skills so that I might be prepared to go and study in France and get my degree there.
