Introduction to families
Dear Family. I was fully vaccinated with the Johnson and Johnson vaccine. I am 40 years old, unmarried, and my first Au Pair job started in 2000, when I was still in metric. I have first Aid until level 3(expired) and level 1 that is up to date. I have lots of experience, especially with babies. I am a qualified beautition. I have experience in special needs children. I studied Bed Foundation phase first year, currently taking a break, due to finances and will continue later. I also done some short course like some Brain Gym 101, NIM, and a curriculum for preschool etc. I work for a family that are currently in Sweden for the lockdown period and currently available full day as well as for ad hoc babysitting. I have experience at Anton van Wouw’s after school Centre were I worked for a year and have the experience to assist children with school work and study. I also night nursed for various families from looking after a baby that does not sleep through yet, to single mom working night shift to stay with her three kids during the night time, getting them ready for school and dropping them at school. As well as only transport to school and back and afternoon activities. I currently work as a Au Pair for an overseas family who will be in South Africa for 3 years. My working hours for them are 12:30 till 18:00 in Silverlakes at R80 per hour. Therefore I am available in the mornings and evenings as well as over the weekends, once they return to South Africa I would prefer my rate to be R60/hour upwards, but my rate is negotiable depending on location and hours. I am available for short or long term contracts. I can email you my updated CV and qualifications.
Because I have almost 12+ years experience as an Au Pair, with lots of baby experience as well. Love caring for babies and night nursing them. Can help children with areas they have not mastered yet with Brain Gym. My big love and passion in life is working with children.
Studying, cooking, baking, sosial with friends.

To whom it may concern. This is to testify that Nicolene D has provided transport for my son home from school every day. The contract was for almost 2 years, from April 2012 to November 2013, and I can testify that she never been late or did not pitch in this period. She is a very diligent person and if she cannot make it she will get somebody else to help. Regards, Magda Geyser
Yes

Au pair for special needs child. Transporting to and from school. Stimulating child and assist in his development. Preparing meals and snacks, and feeding him. Changing nappies and potty training.
Yes
Nicolene is extremely reliable and takes her work seriously. She wasn't just an au-pair but was part of our family. The care taken with our 5 year old special needs son was great. She always attended to his needs and was always with him to provide him with the care he needs. Nicolene comes highly recommended since she finds ways to stimulate children and are always willing to go the extra mile. Her desire to be a caregiver makes her a fantastic au-pair.
