Emma's Description

Dear Family,

I have been living in Australia since January of this year, travelling initially and then working from April until mid August with a lovely family in Brisbane (who had 3 children, ages 3, 9 and 11) and now I am working as an Aupair in the 'outback' of NSW for three months to gain my 2nd Year Visa.

I am an outgoing, happy and friendly person who loves children of all ages and also enjoys working positively with parents.

I am educated to University Standard and while living in the UK worked as an Event Manager for a Children's Charity based in a local large Children's Hospital. I have also volunteered for three years for a charity that matches disadvantaged children with volunteers who take them out for activities and friendship every two weeks.

I come from a happy and close knit family of 4 in Scotland. At home I have grown up with pets and am happy to do dog walks etc. On the farm I have also gained experience feeding horses and calves !

I am a non smoker and can drive both an automatic and manual car and I have a clean driving licence. I can supply excellent references from previous employers for you.

In my spare time I enjoy keeping fit, going for walks, travelling and exploring new places, and having a cocktail with friends ! Everywhere I have gone I have been able to make new friends, I think due to the fact that I am a very approachable, friendly and outgoing person.
I am happy to do occasional cooking of the main family dinner but would prefer not to have that responsibility every night. However, I love baking with children and would be happy to do this as a regular activity.

When I am working with children I always like to be as interactive as possible and to provide them with activities which are stimulating and encourage learning as well as being fun. Examples of activities which I have regularly undertaken with children are: baking, arts and crafts, reading stories, trips to the playground and other local child friendly activities, swimming, going for walks, playing football and other ball games, board games (teaching children to share and take turns), learning to ride a bike etc I would always encourage children to develop any hobbies or interests that they have and am happy to take children to any extra curricular activities. I went to a weekly pre-school multi sport class in Brisbane and supported the 3 year old child's participation in this group and also went to support football games with the 9 year old and have enjoyed helping with homework.

I like watching children grow and develop and when you are with the host family every day it is possible to play a part in this. For example, with my support and encouragement the three year old that I looked after in Brisbane learned to recognise her written name, learned to catch a ball, started going to the toilet herself and started to experiment with a wider choice of foods while I was with the family.

Working as an Aupair abroad also gives me an opportunity to have a greater understanding of Australian family life and culture. I also find that by being part of a family you get to know the city quicker and in more depth than simply being a tourist.

It is hard to know what additional information the host family would like to know about, so please feel free to message me with any questions you have and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
