Introduction to families
I am an energetic, friendly and competent au pair with a calm attitude and a track record of providing a quality childcare service to families and their children. Always smartly presented with excellent hygiene standards and available on a live-in or live-out basis. Looking to work in partnership with a reputable family and take responsibility for the safety and development of their children.
I relate to children very well as I am giving and kind, I can put myself at their level by understanding them, I listen and encourage them and I can also assist children with learning disabilities or special needs. I help to promote the social and educational grooming and development of children within a busy household including assisting with household duties. I provide for the children’s needs including childcare after their return from school in the afternoon right up to bed time. I perform childcare duties and responsibilities according to the family's specifications.
Academics, ancient history research and travelling.

I believe Pearl is the best choice for an au pair. I have gotten to know her quite well. I am often amazed by her maturity and dependability, which are relatively rare personality traits in some people these days. I trust her with them implicitly. She has never shown anything but patience and understanding around my children, and in fact seems destined to be in this line of work. Some people just have a way with children, and Pearl is definitely one of those people. She is also incredibly responsible in her own life, always learning and improving herself which in turn makes her a great role model thus making her an ideal person to care for children as she taught our children to be ambitious. If I were in need of an au pair, I would not hesitate in hiring her for the position again. I strongly encourage you to jump at the opportunity to have her care for your children.

Pearl is dedicated, tenacious, independent and great at multitasking. I really admired the fact that she stayed true to the believes and customs of the family. She stayed on top of the children’s needs be it academic or social including the household and even when we were away, my children hardly missed us, all they would say is they were having fun with Pearl as she got involved during playtime. She is good with academics which improved the children’s abilities drastically and also arts and crafts which helped with the children’s projects. She has a great personality, sense of humour and is willing to join in all children’s activities. That makes it easy for children to like her and accept her as part of the family. She was a dear friend to the children and will surely be missed. We can strongly recommend her as an au pair. She will be a friendly, reliable and competent member of the family.
