As an honest and punctual professional who has over 2 years’ experience, I would be able to contribute my skills towards the role. I am currently living in the United States working as a live in au pair. I spent one year caring for four children, ages 13, 7, 6 and 4 in Reno, Nevada. Within my current year I am responsible for caring for two children, ages 9 and 7.
Through my experience as an au pair and babysitter, I gained expertise in the different aspects of childcare such as providing guidance for their academic needs, managing their daily schedules as well as shaping me into a flexible and quick-thinking worker. Besides regular nanny duties, I have a demonstrated ability to perform housekeeping tasks and run errands effectively.
Please review my attached resume for additional details regarding my expertise and career history.
I am currently working in the USA as an au pair; the current family I work for have two children (Boy aged 7 and Girl aged 9).
I also previously cared for a family with four children (girl aged 4, boy aged 6, girl aged 7 and boy aged 13).
Completing my work abroad in the United States has given me an excellent level of confidence and independence whilst carrying out my role at the absolute best of my abilities. Part of my role involves ensuring important family values are met, this includes maintaining healthy daily routines ranging from meal times, health appointments as well as sharing my educational skills with children’s homework when required.
I have been able to share my personal interests with external activities such as leisure trips over the United States, which in times of travel disruption have allowed me to demonstrate children security and confidence and in future make personal contingency plans in ‘What if’ scenarios. Having the ability to travel has allowed me to reach out to a large array of communities from all different parts of the United States and adapt to any language barriers or cultural differences with no difficulty.
I have demonstrated strong liaison skills with Schools, health care providers as well as leisure activity companies. I strongly believe in ensuring that all appointments are met as well as maintaining a healthy lifestyle outside of the home and education environment. My social skills have allowed me to gain and maintain trust with children, parents as well as their friends and family, allowing me to ensure the highest safety for the children at all times, regardless of the activity. This trust has allowed me to take responsibility of children in scenarios where parents have been away from their home overnight on business or holiday with no concerns.
I have demonstrated a high standard of core skills such as general house keeping, laundry duties, grocery shopping and household chores. Living alone has allowed me to demonstrate independence through careful finance management, having a large responsibility as well as being able to look after myself. I have demonstrated flexibility to suit any parents extra needs and I am a holder of a full UK and US driving license’s.
I previously worked in a Nursery of children aged 2-5 and loved every moment of it. All the adventures and exciting activities we got up to. I have always loved working with children whether that be babysitting a cousin for a short period of time or spending time working with children from the Nursery.
I have a younger sister who I care for regularly; she is now 16 but I have cared for he since she was around 8 years old. Quite often I will babysit her a few hours at a time however, when parents are on holiday I have full responsibility of her for the whole week.
I currently have no qualifications with childcare; however I do plan to work towards a level three once I am back home. I have previous experience of being an au pair, babysitting and also working within a Nursery setting. Whilst at the Nursery I helped with classes aged 2-5, and also helped out at an after school club which ran for ages 4-11.
I am available anytime from January 2020
