My name is
Dear Au Pair Agency,
I would describe myself as a caring, hardworking, reliable, friendly, approachable individual. I also feel that I have the ability to use my initiative, work as a team member and build positive relationships with children and their families.
I would like to live with an family because from previously undertaking placements within an variety of childcare environments such as private day nurseries, primary schools and children centres whilst studying childcare courses at college and university. I have enjoyed supporting children with their learning and having the opportunity to see them grow as an individual and reach to their full learning potential.
Furthermore, I have experience living with a host family as I have previously been an Au pair in Madrid for an month, where I was taking care of two girls aged six and ten whilst their parents were at work. I feel that this experience enabled me to build positive relationships with the children and their parents, as well as provided me with experience of planning and implementing English activities that I carried out with the children every morning for an hour.
I hope am giving the opportunity to live with a family so that I can use the practical experience I have working with children and so that I can use my existing skills and develop new skills.
Thank you for taking the time to read this personal statement.
I have carried out a wide range of placements within different childcare environments such as primary schools, nurseries, children centres and at an refugee accommodation. In addition to completing childcare courses at college and university.
