Introduction to families
I am looking to join a lovely family as a learning facilitator or professional au pair. I have just completed my PGCE (Post-Graduate Certificate in Education) specialising in Foundation Phase at UCT. I also hold a BA (Bachelor of Arts) in organisational psychology, media & writing from UCT. I have also completed my AMI (Association Montessori Internationale) diploma for 0-3 year and have worked as an infant and toddler Directress for 2 years. I have tutored children of various ages too. I have over two years au pairing experience with children between the ages of 5-10. I love working with children of all ages and I am happy to assist with homework, lifting to and from school or extra murals/ play dates. I have my own car and a valid drivers license. I also enjoy being active and recently completed a games coaching workshop presented by Habib Noorbhai (Mr. South Africa) which I feel will help me in planning fun and healthy activities!
I have a passion for working with children and would love to be a part of your family. I am responsible, loving, and fun! I also have a sound background in child care as a teacher as well as a tertiary qualification so I can confidently assist with learning support and homework supervision. I am also good at multi-tasking so I would be comfortable looking after more than one child and attending to their schedules (school facilitation/lifting/extramural activities /outings/play dates etc.)
I absolutely love animals so I would be very happy in a household with pets and taking the children out for a walk to the park with the dog for example. I enjoy horse riding and yoga too! I love to bake and cook and would enjoy doing these activities with your children too or making them snacks/meals.

Jacqui was professional, energetic, creative and very in touch with the children and thier needs. She was everything I look for in a Montessori Directress and I recommend her for the position for which sh is applying. I would definately consider re-employing her - I was that happy with Jacui.

Jacqui G..., is an highly intelligent and articulate young lady. She is extremely reliable and responsible. She manages her time effectively so that she is available, to the varying needs of her community of young children. Jacqui has a very clear and special understanding of the needs of people in general and an especially deep empathy for the children in her care. She is able to think and act quickly in emergencies. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jacqui as a woman of great integrity. Please feel free to contact me should you require any further information. Cell: 0827865011

Private Au Pair - like a 'big sister'. Collecting the girls from their school and taking home and preparing lunch. Lift to various extra-murals, play dates and fun outings in the afternoon. Assist with homework supervision and play educational games. Supervise evening routine - bath and supper time.
Yes
Jax was a very special au pair to us and we still consider her part of the family. I can confirm she collected the girls from school, took them to extra murals and supervised homework when required. She left our family to continue her studies. Please contact me on the above number. I am more than happy to provide a more comprehensive reference and answer any questions.
