People

Au Pair – Emily

Emily is 18 years old (she will be 19 when she starts her au pair journey) and comes from Germany.  She hopes to come to New Zealand in July. Emily would like to stay for 9 months and will consider staying for 12 months if things go well with her host family and her stay.  Emily has her drivers’ licence and has had it since August 2017. She is confident with driving as she drives every day.

Emily would love to au pair in New Zealand as she loves children and she loves travelling.  She has family members who have previously au paired abroad and their experiences have enticed Emily to also try this experience and prepared her for the expectations and realities of the role and of working and living in another country.

Emily would like to care for young children, including babies and toddlers.  Her first bit of childcare experience started at the age of 12 years old when she looked after her little cousin who was 3 years old and once her cousin’s sister was born, she looked after her too. When she was 14, she started coaching children (ages 3–5 years) in dancing.  She enjoyed her coaching work so much that she took on additional classes with the older children (5-7years and 8-13 years). Emily also enjoys babysitting for family and friends when the opportunity arises.

Emily describes herself as reliable, open-minded, helpful, creative and patient.  Her overseas agent found Emily to be very confident and open-minded with great common sense and not shy at all which will help her adapt to her new situation. Emily has had some experience of being abroad and living in a host family in America.  Emily is very excited to take this opportunity and is well prepared for the expectancies of being an Au Pair.

Au Pair – Amanda

Amanda will be turning 20 years old just before she ideally arrives in NZ in May.  She comes from Sweden and would like to stay for 12 months.   Coming to New Zealand is a once in a lifetime opportunity for Amanda and she is very excited about coming to visit our lovely country and learn all she can about our kiwi culture.  She loves being around children and interacting with them so becoming an Au Pair is a great opportunity for her.  She has previously been involved in a student exchange in France so is no stranger to travelling away from home and adapting in with a new family and a new culture.  She has a driver’s licence and drives several times during the week.

Amanda has had experience working at a daycare centre with toddlers as well as assisting with lessons with younger school children. Amanda likes to keep active by going to the gym and doing sports such as skiing, snowboarding, ballet and jazz, and synchronized swimming.  She loves to bake and enjoys photography and drawing.  Amanda is a fun-loving person and will be great with children.  She loves Disney movies and knows all the songs and enjoys playing fun games like snowball wars and can build an amazing snowman.

Amanda’s overseas agent describes her as kind and hardworking and she has glowing references that all agree that she is reliable and positive.
