Letter to the family

*I have double checked with each embassy (Belgium, France, Luxembourg) and it is possible for me to get a visa and travel, even with covid*

Hi there!

My name is Mary, I am 24 years old and from New Zealand. I am a calm, friendly, kind and responsible person. I have already been an au pair twice before (in the U.K and Canada), and I enjoyed the experiences so much I decided to try again. I also attended a boarding school in New Zealand for 5 years, and was an exchange student in Denmark for a year so I am very used to living away from home.



I have experience in caring for children aged 0-7 years old. I am comfortable in all areas of childcare and general housekeeping. I am happy to answer any questions you might have and to provide more information. I have also added some references/recommendations.



Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile!

Experience

I have already been an au pair twice before.

First in England for a baby girl 6-20 months old, and second in Canada for 2 boys aged 3-4 and 6-7. I am the proud Aunt to 2 adorable young nephews and niece so I have particular experience with babies/toddlers.



I am comfortable in all areas of baby care (feeding, dressing, changing nappies, bath time, putting down for naps, play etc). 



For older children my duties have included school/kindergarten drop off and pick up, making school lunches and family dinners, helping with homework, supervising play dates, building legos, taking to swimming lessons and getting everyone out the door on time in the mornings! 




***

Being an au pair has so far worked out well for me.

The housekeeping side of things comes naturally to me; cleaning, cooking, organising and generally keeping on top of things. 



Looking after children can certainly be challenging at times, but is also extremely rewarding. Kids develop and learn so fast, and there is a sense of pride in watching them grow and thrive and knowing I was able to help with that. Also, kids can be pretty fun and entertaining too! 



And from a practical perspective, I am able to travel, learn and experience different cultures/ways of life. It is also quite a different thing to live with a family in another country than it is to visit by myself as a tourist for a couple of weeks. 



And there is something to learn from everyone. Every family I’ve stayed with has a different way of doing things, but I’ve picked up little habits and tricks from each that have made their way into my own life, so I’m always curious what things will stick with me next!
