Introduction to families
Dear Family, My name is Samantha (Sam) M and I am 23 years old. I have a definite passion for working with children and the hopes of oneday becoming a Montessori Pre-School Teacher. I have not yet gotten around to studying due to taking a gap year, followed by a year of work and 2 years abroad in The States as an au pair / live-in-nanny. I have those 2 years of live-in experience with children between 1 year and 13 years old. But also have countless hours experience prior to going abroad, here in Durban with various Pre-Schools and Aftercare’s. I have always loved and admired working with children and there don’t seem to be many that I don’t get along with! I am easy-going and consider myself down-to-earth as I easily and happily relate to many ages. Whether I’m painting nails with little girls, playing basket ball with a family of four boys or being creative building Leggo with children -my heart is content. It is not always easy but I have learned that it is possible to be a child’s “friend” whilst still being affirmative and laying down rules that parents may have instructed. I am open, honest, and caring. And looking for part-time or full-time work while I am in the midths of deciding what is next for me. I have been home (back from U.S.A) for 9 months and have been working at my old job as a sales lady. Despite loving my job and my customers, my heart longs to work with children again. Please consider me as an au pair / babysitter / nanny. Kind regards 🌻
As previously mentioned I have loads of experience and a passion for children. I am available for babysitting anytime and for a part-time or full-time job as soon as 01 August ‘18. This date is due to the lady whose place I have been working in returning from her maternity leave. -I am happy to make myself available to meet for an interview anytime 🌸
My hobbies include hiking/walks in nature, reading, writing (poetry), drawing (although I’m not very good), socializing with friends and travel.

A community service project was how my contact with Malvern Children’s Home began. I continued to volunteer thereafter when I could due to falling in love with House No. 8 (all girls with House-Mother Holliness Khuzwayo) Help included, playing with the children, taking them to the park,meal prep and serving, bath time.

Unfortunately I have lost direct cell contact due to the family moving to Hong Kong. I was a live-in-nanny / aupair with this family in NYC, America. I did everything from serving breakfast, getting ready glide school and prepping lunch to taking kids to and from school via subway, homework, laundry, dinner, bath time, bed routine.
