Introduction to families
Dear Family, my name is Sphile, I am from Durban now living in Joburg and to describe myself, I am a 24 year old compassionate and loving person. I care deeply about those around me and try to be very supportive. I love kids and being around them brings me a little bit of joyful sense. I'm also very organized and structured with my time and juggling my schedule. I am responsible and accountable for any mistakes that I may make and I am always open and willing to listen and learn more about anything. I am reliable and very open minded. I like clean places as well so I like to ensure my space and that of others is clean and tidy, it makes for a comfortable, safe and healthy atmosphere.
I have been trained as au Pair in the New York Cultural Care Au Pair Training School, to fulfill all delicate and important objectives for how to manage and maintain a safe environment for children to grow in, I take pride in practicing all safety procedures and also ensuring the parent is in full control of how their child's schedule should look like. I practice all necessary essentials such as food safety, age appropriate activities, child protection and development, not forgetting household poisoning prevention or water safety. I have also completed an adult and pediatric CPR/AED and First Aid Training presented by the American Heart Association. I am also able to listen to how the parents chooses to have their kids raised. I love kids too, there's always something exciting to partake in with them.
I enjoy taking long hikes, trails and going for jogs, I also enjoy reading, watching animation movies and listening to music.. I love spending time with my family and friends, cooking and baking. Traveling is also a great personal highlight for me and tidying up my space gives me a sense of joy somehow.

I was a live in aupair in the US, in Michigan state, taking care mainly for the baby triplet boys, my job description/schedule included getting them up in the morning, meal preparation and feedings for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Changing them into day clothes in the morning and pjs in after dinner and/or bathtime every other day, also changing their diapers occasionally in the whole day. Doing laundry Tuesdays and Fridays for everyone in the family. I did Playtime and walks, also took them to their occasional doctors appointments trips as they needed more attention with their mother, putting them down for naps in the day, providing them their snacks/bottles between playtime sessions, and helping the parents on my days off if asked, or occasionally babysitting.

I was a volunteer teacher's assistant at Ukuthula ECD Educational Centre, I was able to practice Early Childhood Developlment at this really good center Monday to Friday. In the morning I would retrieve the little students from their parents at dropoff. Insured they were at respective places for the morning prayer and day announcements. I would also help with teaching educational rhyme songs, numbers, alphabets word pronunciation and writing. At lunch, we had to supervise that every child is eating, also supervise day breaks which included playing outside and bathroom breaks for the kiddos. This all took patience and love for kids considering it was a large class of about 15 to 20 students. I would also have to take over if the main teacher was absent for the day or if other classes required a teacher for the day too. Then also helping the students prepare for pickup time and making sure their personal items and homework was safely packed away. This basically all required a set practic
