Introduction to families
I am a lady aged 31 who is mature and able to communicate openly and effectively.
I would make a perfect au pair because I am dependable with 3 years experience working with 2 families. I am reliable, responsible and able to assist children with school assignments and projects. Expertise in age appropriate activities with extensive experience in keeping children entertained for hours. I adore children and I am patient with them. I listen when the kids talk to me and it helps them listen to me when I talk to them. I use a different approach with each child because every child is unique.
I love baking, reading and cycling.

Penny is an exceptional au pair. She has a very calm demeanor in all circumstances. In terms of organising our boys afternoons and their respective homework tasks, Penny has proved herself a great boost to the boys learning and development. She is unfailingly reliable; she always thinks one step ahead, and ensures that if we have missed something in their schedules, she will have picked up on it and filled in the gap. She is very kind to our boys but knows how to be firm if the situation warrants. We have come to rely on her a lot and trust her implicitly. Whenever there have been circumstances when she has not been able to come to work eg one of her children had a doctors' appointment , Penny has always given us ample warning so we could make alternative arrangements. She has been very good on giving us regular feedback on how the boys are doing in their homework and in their sports. Penny may seem reserved at times, but that is her manner - she is always on top of things, and is never lazy. And she always follows our guidelines. Thought when necessary she is also creative in thinking up new activities for the boys. I have no hesitation in recommending Penny as an au pair
