In Germany I took care of a 3 year old girl two to three times a week for about 4 hours a day. I was an Au Pair in North Carolina and Virginia for a military family. As an Au Pair I took care of two children, a 5 year old girl and a 7 year old boy. The boy was a special needs child. I learned a lot as an Au Pair and I enjoyed working with both of them. After my AuPair time, I started working as a Nanny in Germany. I took care of a baby girl and a two year old girl.
