Start date: december

Education: bachelor in communication

Childcare experience: I just finished my year as an aupair in Antwerp Belgium last august, from september 2017 till August 2018 i took care of 3 littles boys. The main thing i had to do was teaching them French as they were only speaking Dutch.
My tasks consisted in preparing breakfast for them in the Morning and Driving them to school, After my language courses i do groceries, in the Afternoon i pick them up from school and play a little bit with them before making dinner as i do like cooking. I also help them to tidy their playroom up and iron their school uniforms.
Sometimes, i put them to bed just after we read a french book.
I can provide you a reference from my former host family and a certficate for my language courses.

Motivation: I wish to become an au pair in the Netherlands to get a good understanding of Dutch culture and traditions. As I mentioned above, I already have a basic knwoledge of Dutch as I took a 4 months class, besides I lived with a Dutch speaking family and had few friends so that was a great language immersion experience for me. Being an au pair will allow me to learn and speak the language fluently and make it possible for me to experience the Dutch way of living.
Moreover, being an aupair in belgium allowed me to grow a lot as a person, I am now more independent and more mature than I was before.
In my free time I plan to explore the touristic areas in the Netherlands that I haven’t seen yet.

Age: 23

Nationality: South African

Country of residence: South Africa

Start date: 01.02.2019

Education: Matric and Final year of BA degree

Childcare experience: I have looked after children of different ages. Last year i volunteered at a baby home where i assisted the child care workers with feeding the infants and toddlers, putting them to sleep, cuddling with them, reading to them and playing with them. When i was between the ages of 15 and 16 I worked part time for a place where children could come play and do art work etc. I always assist my little cousins with their homework or any other activities where my help is needed. There has been various instances where I had to babysit for family and friends.

Motivation: The most important motivational aspect about being an Au pair is to work with children. It gives me great joy to learn the different aspects and developmental stages that they go through and to be a part of their life and their growth. This is also a stepping stone to one day finalize my degree in child psychology. Another motivational aspect would be that I would get to travel abroad and earn the cultures and the environment of the host family and vice versa. It would be a great pleasure for me to make a difference and be of great assistance in the lives of my host family especially where the children is concerned.

The kids I have babysat have always loved it. I love being very hands on. I will bring crafts, science experiments, new board games. I will go outside and run with the kids. I get dirty in the sand. I absolutely love seeing their smiles. I want to be an elementary school teacher and this experience would be awesome. It mixes two of my favourite interests. Being an au pair in the Netherlands also would let me experience this new culture. I love discovering new things and understanding other cultures.

Every day, I would bring something different to do with the children, for example cooking, a science experiment, a treasure hunt or outside water games.
