Introduction to families
Dear Family, my name is Cheney and I'm from Boksburg, Gauteng. I've been an au pair for 5 years now, with two years experience over seas in America and 3 years in South Africa. I have my own transportation and I'm very responsible when it comes to my job. I am looking for a long term stay with a family (6 - 12 months)
I love working with children and seeing them grow. I am very patient, loving and caring. My hours are very flexible, and household duties are negotiable. I will be there to become a part of your family and not just to work for you.
I love reading, writing, music, netball and spending time with my friends and family. I love photography of wildlife and stills and portraits of people. I also love traveling and seeing new places and meeting new people.

It is my pleasure to be asked to write this letter of support for Cheney T’s application for a new au pair position. I have known Cheney for two years and she has become family over this time working as our sons’ au pair. She has my support and highest recommendation. I first met Cheney during a long process of interviewing potential au pairs for my four-year-old son. I knew immediately she would be a great fit for our family. When she arrived she was warm and comfortable. She did her best to fit in with the family and made fast friends with my son. Cheney was able to balance her role of playmate and disciplinarian beautifully, as our son both adored and respected her. She not only had to adjust to living with a new family, but also to a new country thousands of miles away from her family. Cheney showed great maturity and independence during this transition. She was always seeking out new adventures and making the most of every opportunity. Cheney demonstrated great dedication and flexibility when we told her we were having a second baby and soon welcomed our second son during her stay with us. She handled all of the many changes and challenges that come along with a newborn wonderfully. Cheney was incredibly respectful of my wishes around the new baby and politely did as I asked. She also continued to shower my older son with attention, which helped as he adapted to his new role of older brother. Cheney also put up with our family’s nearly impossible schedule and continuously offered to help or lend a hand wherever it was needed. She would help with laundry, dishes, picking up, entertaining, cooking, homework, and even doctor’s appointments. I have been impressed with Cheney from the beginning. She is extremely dependable and went above and beyond expectations to make our lives easier. My husband was a surgical resident and I was a pediatric resident with unpredictable hours. Cheney always found a way to be there for us and always without complaint. She has tons of energy, a great spirit and both of our sons absolutely love her. I have no doubt Cheney will be a wonderful and successful au pair as she is bright, thoughtful, independent and a hard worker. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about Cheney’s application.

Cheney was like a member of our family, she provided care for my two daughters. Cheney took them to school via public transit, and kept up with their busy schedule of dance classes and play dates. She assisted with homework, cooked, bathed the girls and made sure they got to bed on time. She was also a wonderful addition to our house - fun to be around and great company on vacations.
