Introduction to families
Dear Family My name is Erin Marie J, I am a 27-year-old female. I am a calm and patient person. I am kind, caring and nurturing. I have a passion for working with children; I benefit just as much from working with children as l benefit the children. I am a friendly, helpful, reliable, trustworthy and dependable person. I conduct myself professionally and responsibly. I would so look forward to hearing from you. I'd love to start helping you with your precious ones. I want to bring the best out of your kids, I will be their biggest supporter. Their success is my success.
I have a genuine passion and dedication to working with and caring for children/teens, which has been hugely rewarding for me in my previous experiences of teaching and tutoring. Working with children/teens is a job that I take seriously and I put a lot of care and effort into being sensitive to each child's individual needs. I am a big believer in using positive reinforcement and inductive reasoning when I work with children in a caring position. I try my utmost best to be an example to children/teens and I practice what I preach. I am an extremely patient person and I am not the one to lose my temper. I look to genuinely connect with people, which is why I am especially drawn to a career of caring for children. It is my aspiration to become a child psychologist someday. I have a great interest in Psychology and I have enrolled for a part-time course at NMMU in Educational Psychology. I have already achieved my BA degree from Rhodes University where I majored in Psychology. I was and still, am especially interested in Early Developmental Psychology.
I studied Psychology at University, a field of study that still fascinates me greatly, which I enjoy reading up on and keeping updated. I also studied Journalism, and I have a passion for reading, literature, and writing. I love fitness and I live for my daily run or cycle. I believe in being active as it's an integral part of living a life that is in balance and in harmony. I would happily go for a run, cycle or get involved in any sport your child is interested in and help develop their skills.

Two eight-year-old twin boys, and a 13-year-old boy
I worked as a live-in au pair when their mom was away on business, which would sometimes be up to 3 nights during the week. I was responsible for all caring duties for the children, which included waking them up, getting them ready for school, packing lunches and driving them to school. I was responsible for fetching them from school, making lunches, doing homework with them, transporting them to their extra murals in the afternoon, fetching them. I would then get supper ready for them, bathtime, then bedtime. So basically, I was in charge of all their needs when their mother was away on business. When the mother was back, I would be responsible for fetching the kids from school, transporting them to extra murals and helping them with their homework.
Yes
Erin's selfless dedication and commitment to the welfare of my children has been very reassuring and given me peace of mind, especially during business travels. The children have benefited greatly through her natural abilities to interact with them. She has helped my boys develop and improve at school through her consistent and diligent approach to homework. Erin is highly responsible and reliable and ensures the children's emotional , educational and physical needs are always satisfied. It has been a pleasure watching my children flourish under her loving care and guidance. I would highly recommend her .

3 boys aged, 6 months, 2 years old and 4 years old.
I was an au pair for a wonderful family in The Netherlands with 3 boys. I was responsible for looking after the baby when needed. My duties included feeding the baby, taking the baby for walks in his stroller, and putting him down for his naps. I also was responsible for fetching the 4-year-old from school on some weekdays. My duties included making him lunch and taking him to the playground. On some days of the week I would babysit the 4-year-old and the 2-year-old, where I would be responsible for making them lunch, transporting them to the playground on the bicycle and supervising their play... often joining in on their play.
