I live in Lawrenceville which is about 15 minutes away from Princeton.I love living here and are nice towns and not too far from PA and great for day trips. The beach is not a long drive either! I decided to become an au pair because it is the best and safest way to travel to the US and experience something new.I really like spending time with children thought that this would be a great opportunity.I have 6 years experience childcare.I take care of two children, a 5 year old girl and a 3 year old boy. It took a little while for them to get used to me, but we soon grew close and now they are like my little brother and sister. I get along very well with my host family, they respect me and allow me a lot of freedom.They treat me like a member of the family and I think that was why it was so easy to adapt to being here, considering the fact that it was my first time away from home.I lived with them for 2 years until end of Aupair program.For my part time nanny job.I take care a 5 year old girl .She loves to dance and aspires to be a singer and is an outstanding all rounder.She loves playing with her Barbie and baby dolls.I have to drive pick up and drop her off to school and another activity after school,prepared snack and meal,light cleaning,playing and reading until her parents come back home.Another occasionally babysitter job,a 4 months boy.He is 11 months now.Mostly,I take care him on weekend 5 hours per day.He is such a cute boy,has a good mood,and easy to take care.I have to feed,laundry,light cleaning,take him a nap,playing and changing diaper.

I last worked as a paid nanny/babysitter in the early 90's for a summer. My duties included preparing the children's meals cleaning up their areas, doing their laundry, taking them out for play, reading to them/organizing activities, putting them down for naps/rest and their overall supervision. The husband was an investment banker and he moved his family to the Boston area. I was asked whether or not I wanted to join them, but I was raising my own children then. Elise was about 6 mos. old and her brother, Drew was about 3. Their mom didn't work, but was busy socially. Very good, kind and generous people.

I have been the person who have taken the role of caring for my little brothers since the age of 14 when my parents aren't around. I am great with children and they tend to follow my directions. Although I am still young, I am still playful but also firm when I say something that I mean.
