You might have already booked your tickets and prepared everything. Or maybe you still consider whether this is your thing.
You might already imagine yourself in one country. Are you looking for city life? Or perhaps you are thinking something exotic, like Norway, or even a farm. Being a nanny or au pair you get to know the country in many ways.
I will help you to do your work as good as you can, so that you have still energy left for adventures.
I will help you to find your inner child and your memories of your childhood and family life.
When you get to know yourself, you can understand others better. It is a crucial step towards new family cultures.
Many companies offer tools for paper work and finding a family to work with. It is an important start! However, the hardest part, working IN the family and the whole life change, is about to come.
The word “au pair” means “equal”. You could think that working in a family is more like being a family member than being an employee. However, you will have an employment relationship with the family, but you might get a long term relationship with them. Just play your cards right: be humble and trustworthy.
How to get inside the family’s circle of trust? How can I recognize the family values? How can I take care of the children and face difficult situations?
This course will give you answer to those questions
All the best to your path! I believe, that working as an au pair or nanny is a great opportunity to expand your language skills and learn how to support children’s emotional and academic skills during your experience.
Your main responsibility is to make sure all the time, that the child is in safe. Even when you teach them to play alone, make sure that you can still see and hear them and you are able to look after them.
Safety is alway the priority number 1.
