Introduction to families
Dear Host Family, thank you for taking the time to read my introduction. My name is Chané B, I am a very patient, enthusiastic and competent woman. I am well-groomed and eloquent with a diplomatic demeanour. Currently, I am not studying. However, I perused a 2 year program studying a Bachelor’s in Applied Social Science (Majoring in Psychology and Counselling) at the South African College of Applied Psychology (SACAP). So, the times in which I would be available are very flexible and my main priority would be caring for your child/children. When it comes to childcare experience, I have had the privilege of being an au pair for 3 different families for children between the ages of 18 months - 16 years old. My role as an au pair has afforded me the opportunity to nurture a diverse range of personalities, fostering a conducive environment for personal and professional growth. I have gained exceptional management and time management skills through orchestrating and overseeing the children's schedules, encompassing transportation to various activities, homework supervision, playtime, and essential care. Additionally, I've taken on responsibilities for general errands and the overall upkeep of the household. In an informal capacity, I've actively participated in the care of my two younger brothers, Zachary (14 years old) and Logan (6 years old), since their infancy, contributing significantly to my comprehensive understanding and experience in child care across diverse age groups. I recognise the responsibilities that come with being like a big sister and understand that it entails more than just playful moments; it involves a commitment to the well-being and development of the children under my care. I can comfortably say that I sincerely enjoy spending time with children and would be happy to have the opportunity to speak with you to: answer any questions you might have about me; to learn more about your family; your interests and to know more about what you expect from the au pair arrangement. Thank you very much for your interest in my application. I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards, Chané
I am a patient, enthusiastic and competent woman. I am well-groomed and eloquent with a diplomatic demeanor. I absolutely adore children and go above and beyond to ensure that they feel loved and heard. It would be an absolute pleasure to partake in the children's/child's favourite activities and even create new, fun activities to do together to get to know and trust one another as your children's/child's trust is very important to me. I am well aware of the fact that being like a big sister to your children/child comes along with responsibilities and that it will not always be play and fun. My calm and patient personality has allowed me to master more difficult situations. For instance, when children are tired and irritable. My love for children is impeccable and I would want nothing more than to help out hard working mom's and dad's by being there for your child/children.
I enjoy: - being outdoors - going for walks - crocheting - doing DIY tasks - journaling - taking care of my plants - painting/drawing - exercising and making sure I am mentally and physically healthy I am very passionate about taking the time to do the things you enjoy. I will always make time to learn about your child/children’s different hobbies and interests and I will make sure to complete at least one fun activity to do together, daily
