I participated in an Au pair program in Contra Costa County.
During that time I worked as full time - live in nanny/aupair. I stayed with two nice families.
In my first family I took care of 2 beautiful kids, 2 years old boy an 6 years old girl. My duties were: child care, prepare kids food, kids laundry, maintaining a set schedule, also pickup from school, driving to and from after school activities and play dates, art projects, reading stories, straightening their rooms and toys, taking children outside on walks and to the park, zoo, museum, stores, libraries, haircut, some errands etc. I worked about 45-50hours a week, from 7am until 5/6pm and I lived with this family about 16 months and I really enjoyed that time.
My second family had 2 boys, 12 and 15 years old. This work included lot of driving, afternoon/evening activities, grocery shopping, also dog walking etc. It was very enriching and nice time too.
I have also been baby-sitting in Europe and in California for several families for the last 9 years and do have some experience as a Teacher`s Aide.
Currently I work as a part time nanny for one family in San Ramon from Monday throught Friday 2:30 -4:30PM.
