My Motivation

  • I am a kind-hearted person that loves keeping children busy. It could be mud cakes, cupcakes or learning activities.
  • I understand that we as au pairs also have a hand in shaping children for their futures as they spend a lot of time with us. Should I be lucky to be chosen as your au pair I would treat your children with the love, respect, and attention they deserve.
  • I would love to go into Au pairing as being with children gives me a different perspective in life. Children see the world in a different way than adults and I love being a part of that.
  • Just thinking about Au pairing gives me a warm feeling in my heart because I get to be a part of those shaping the future through children.
  • Life is precious, especially in this tough time and I want to feel I’m doing something good or positively influence young lives.
  • I understand that it won’t always be sunshine and roses and tough times also lay ahead but I am willing to learn and adapt to these situations to be the best au pair I can possibly be for my future family.
  • I will treat each and every child I have the pleasure in au pairing with the love, respect, and attention they deserve.
  • While Au pairing I want to study further in pediatric nursing once all this chaos has subsided but I won’t allow this to influence my work in a negative way. I hope it only makes me grow in being a better au pair or tutor.

Reference feedback: (Juan***) Her Mother

Charlyn helped me during the period of 2015-2017 and her duties entailed her to cooking, feeding and bathing her brother, and look after him whenever we had to go out.

She followed our strict house rules as well as the rules we had in place for Duan, which she easily complied with.

My son Challyn’s brother adored Charlyn and it was not easy for us to part the two of them as they are very close. But we had to send him to day care.

Charlyn still assisted me and helped me after I had come from work, to put her brother to bed and feed and bath him on occasions I needed the help

I would definitely recommend Charlyn to work with children, she adores children and they adore her.

Reference Feedback: (Zale**) Through a family friend (Cross-reference is being checked)

I know Charlyn she is Family

She was always well mannered, patient and a loving person. She has a bubbly personality and she always arrived smiling.

She looked after her niece very well, fed her, bathed her, did activities with her and also helped me doing the house chores while I was working/busy. I had complete trust in her abilities to do what was needed.

She is intelligent and focussed and was very much invested in the wellbeing of my child.

She was up for any challenge and gladly did anything requested of her.

AS it was time for my child to go to school, I no longer needed her services.

I would strongly recommend her services to any parent.

Reference Feedback: (Karli**) Her Aunty

Charlyn is family, I known the applicant since birth.

She looked after her cousins. She prepared meals, did physical and creative activities with them and bath them.

Her communication is excellent.

She worked for me for 5 days per week. She will also go the extra mile, if I had to work late (due to meetings) she was always accommodating.

She is patient and has a loving nature with children.

Sometimes she cooked

She is understanding and everything she did was in the best interest of the kids.

Yes, she can use her own initiative, always had the kids do creative activities which they enjoyed very much.

As per the original agreement of employment, it was only for one year, as kids would start school in 2019

Charlyn is a pleasing person and therefore judges no one. Charlyn is part of the new generation who knows no badness of the past and therefore gets along with all races.

I feel she is an asset to any mother in need of a child caretaker. Kids are in good hands with her.
