Because of their vulnerability keeping them safe all the time is our main priority.

( 4, Cerebral palsy and cognitive problem) and ( 10, Cerebral Palsy and epilepsy).Being an au pair, I have gained unforgettable memories through creating a strong bond with my host family, obtaining personal growth through conquering moving to a foreign country, and exploring the different culture, language, food, architecture and a once in a lifetime experience of seeing the other side of the world(travelling is a major major bonus):). My roles and responsibilities to the children is to act as their "big sister" especially when the parents are not around. Others may include getting them ready for the school, accompanying the youngest to and from school, doing light household chores such as cleaning, dusting, vacuum, laundry, changing bed linens and preparing and cooking meals for the family. Growing up in the Philippines, I value my family very much and they are always number one in my priorities. If I will be given a chance, I will assure that I will treat you the same way I treated & love my family at home. As an individual, I am an outgoing person and proven to have long patience. I value respect, honesty and professionalism. I am a hard working person, highly driven and flexible. I take initiative as to what needs to be done.
