Introduction to families
Dear family. My name is Simoné and I am 24 years old. I have a lot of experience working with kids - I did part-time work at two different daycares in 2013, spent two years in the USA from 2014-2016 as a full-time au pair for two different families, I was a full-time au pair for a family in the Netherlands in January 2017, and thereafter part-time for a family in Pretoria looking after three kids in the afternoons, ages 7, 10 & 13, from March 2017 until April 2018. Most recently I was living in Utah in the USA as a full-time au pair, looking after a boy aged 6 and a girl aged 12. I am currently continuing my part-time B.Ed ECD Foundation Phase studies at UNISA while looking for part- or full-time work. I love kids, and being around them makes me happy. I am generally a very happy person and enjoy being around other people, even though I am also very much an introvert and enjoy having alone-time as well. I am very honest, mature, responsible and independent.
I truly enjoy working with kids, being around them and seeing them grow and develop. I've learned a lot working as an au pair in different situations, with different families, and with different responsibilities and duties. I've taken care of a baby, toddlers, teenagers, triplets, and four kids at once. I helped clean up general areas, did the kids' laundry, cooked meals, drove them around to school and different activities, played with them, did crafts and baking with them, helped with homework and took care of the house and pets.
Cooking, baking, doing arts and crafts, spending time in the garden/outside, designing house layouts and interiors, redecorating and organizing, playing with my pets, reading, spending time with my friends and family.

Simoné came to work in May,'14 when my triplet girls were 2 and their sister was newborn. Our family's needs required an au pair due to my husband's work schedule. Au Pairs are only allowed to work in America for 2 years and we were relocated to another country, which is why we didn’t keep Simoné for continued childcare. My children loved her as if she was an older sister or aunt. She was a very hard worker and invested in our family. I trusted her at all times to care for my children and keep them safe. Simoné often spent time with us even if it was her personal time. She went above and beyond what was required of her as our au pair and truly became a member of our family. I never had to remind her of her responsibilities and she took initiative to get chores and other tasks done in relation to caring for 4 very young children. I highly recommend Simoné as an employee. In caring for my children it was as though she was an extension of me and I never doubted her judgment or abilities.
