Introduction to families
Hi Family, I am an outgoing 27 year year old currently residing in Pretoria(My mom and dad work around Sandton/Johannesburg so traveling will not be an issue). I am currently living as an au pair in Holland and will be returning home in November after having spent 12 months here. I have also spent 2 years in Los Angeles(2015-2017) living with a family as their au pair. I looked after their 3 kids ages 11, 5 and 2. Prior to that(in 2014) I was an assistant at an after school facility, looking after about 12 kids aged 5-10. Prior to that(2013) I was an au pair in Sandton working for a family with 2 kids ages 3 and 5. As you can tell, I quite enjoy spending time with and looking after kids and I have been doing this for about 7 years now. On top of my job experience with kids, I also have a ton of kids in my extended family who I've looked after from time to time. For a full breakdown of my experience and other relevant information, I will be glad to forward you my CV.
I am your perfect au pair because quite simply, I love kids. I feel like my down-to-earth personality tends to draw in kids and they always seem to enjoy my company. I have a very strict but loving approach which has proved to work well in my favour.
I enjoy writing and being creative whenever I can. I usually like doing creative things with kids as well. Arts and crafts and that sort of thing. I consider myself a free spirit and enjoy making people around me happy. I am always smiling, laughing and trying to enjoy life with the people around me.

Lerrisa worked with us from April 2015 until the end of May 2017. She lived with us in Los Angeles, California, USA until her employment came to an end. Her working visa, which allowed her to live and work in the USA for a maximin of 2 years came to an end forcing her to have to return to South Africa. It was a very sad farewell and we wish she was still here with us. She lovingly took care of our 3 children aged, 13, 7 and 4. Larissa was responsible for all things pertaining to the children. She came in early, prepared lunches and if needed drove them to school. She would pick them up from school, take them for an afternoon treat if needed and return home to do homework, bath them, feed them and await for our return. She was responsible for their laundry. She worked 5 days a week and was available many nights and week-ends to baby sit. Lerissa went beyond the call of duty. She cooked daily for our whole family, which was not a requirement. She also acted as a personal assistant. She helped co-ordinated school activities or anything I didn’t have a chance to get around to. She would often run to the store to do grocery shopping or just get anything needed. It is with a heavy heart that I 100% recommend her to work and care for other children. I only say heavy heart as it makes me very sad that she will not be returning to the USA and back to our family. Lerissa was such an integral part of our family that we still have not hired anyone else as we can not find someone who lives up to the bar set by her. Any family that hires her can consider themselves incredibly fortunate. Kind regards, Leanne and Travis Anderson
