Letter to the family

Hello, my name is Kaitlynn (I like to go by Kait). I am 21 years old, from St. Louis, Missouri, the youngest of three kids, and am excited to have the opportunity to care for your child(ren) while exploring a new culture. I am entering my fourth year in college. I will graduate in the spring of 2021 with a Bachelor's degree in Health Sciences and a minor in Psychology. I will continue my studies for a year and a half to earn my Master's in Occupational Therapy (OT) in hopes of becoming an international OT. I have experience with child care for ten years and love working with children of various backgrounds and/or diagnoses. As your future Au Pair, I want you to know that I am a very positive, encouraging, and patient caregiver. I love to cook, hike, partake in outdoor activities, take photos, tell stories, and be enlightened by the imagination of children. Although these are strange times in the world, I will be sure to take appropriate precautions to keep your children, you, and myself safe/healthy at all times. Thank you for looking into my profile, and I will look forward to hearing from you!

Experience

I am a very outgoing person. I enjoy spending time in smaller group settings than I do large settings, as I prefer to get to know everyone. As a future OT, I tend to always view individuals and situations holistically and want to creatively problem solve. I have ten years of experience with child care. I began babysitting my neighbor's children when I was eleven years old. Additionally, I was a nanny for a family friend for the past two summers. I have volunteered in camps teaching children to adults with down syndrome or other intellectual disabilities ride bikes, as well as a preschool summer camp for children with down syndrome, autism spectrum disorder, and other intellectual disabilities. I am currrently a mentor for an after school program that my college has created. My new role as a site leader will include creating a schedule for the program and assisting middle school aged students. Lastly, with my role as a middle school mentor I was inspired to create a sensory room for the college's program. I have received a grant and will be working with my department chair in the fall to create the space!
