Introduction to families
Dear Potential Host Family, My name is Maxine H... and I am 24 years old and I currently live in Cape Town, South Africa. I attended Harvest Christian School and graduated in December 2012. After high school, I was fortunate enough to study at the Nelson Mandela University in Port Elizabeth. I graduated in December 2017 with a full teaching degree in the Foundation Phase Education. This means that I have extensive knowledge and experience with children aged 4 to 10 years old. I have helped countless learners with multiple learning barriers as well as being involved in school sport and tutoring. I consider myself to be a fun, kind and patient individual. I love to try new things and meet new people. I am caring and loving, but I can be stern and set boundaries when need be. I enjoy reading, running and arts and crafts. I love being creative and making things with children as I know they love it. I would love to be your family’s au pair as it is always something that I have wanted to do. I know that this will be an experience that I will never forget and I am excited to start this journey, and hopefully with your family. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my letter. I look forward to hearing from you and learning more. Warm regards, Maxine.
I have been doing practicals and working with children ever since my first year of studying teaching in 2014. I have spent time at many schools around Port Elizabeth, namely Parsons Hill, St Georges Preparatory School and Greenwood Primary School. During my practicals at these schools I have had to prepare lessons, tutor extra maths and English classes, take the class for physical education and even help with school events and concerts. By working with multiple schools in the district, I have been lucky enough to work with a wide variety of learners. Working with these learners on a daily basis has just solidified my decision to go in to the child care and educator field. I am very passionate about children. Passion is when you put more energy into something than is required. It is more than just enthusiasm or excitement. To me, passion is a desire that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as possible. This is how I feel about children when I teach them, play with them, or simply interact with them at different levels. I learn so much from them that I become the student.
I love reading, running and arts and crafts. I love being creative and using my hands. I enjoy watching movies as well as being outside nad having fun.

Maxine is a mature and responsible caregiver and established meaningful bonds with each of our four children. She exhibited patience and kindness to all of our kids. Her ability to put their needs ahead of her own was extremely admirable. I would highly recommend her for a childcare position. We trusted Maxine and her decision making skills when she was in charge of our children. She was a valued member of our family.
