Emmelys tells about her Au Pair Adventure
Au Pair 2017
The Au-pair stay with Chile Inside was fantastic. From the rapidity and dependability of the mediation to my stay there in Chile, everything went very smoothly. My host family inSantiago was from Argentina. I moved with the family to another home and we also went on holidays together. During the move, things got stress for my host mother, so it was very helpful that I looked after her children.
My two Au-pair children were six months and 2 and a half years old, they were with me every day and won my heart faster than I ever thought. My daily-routine: in the mornings I brought both to the kindergarten and until 1 pm I had some leisure time for me. Later I had to pick up the older child from the kindergarten. On most days, we went for a walk with the dog, to the playground or went swimming in the pool.
Together we did also some afternoon-naps and the most beautiful thing was to fall asleep with the child in my arms. At 5 pm the host mother came home from work. In case she needed to work longer, I had to take the 1rst child and the dog to go and pick up the 2nd child. from kindergarten. The evening routine looked like this: cook some dinner, bath the children, feed the children and chat with the host mother about her day (because we got along brilliantly).
I used to lull the 6-month-old child into sleep and that relaxed me. I had my hands full of work, but I loved it. I learned to love the family and we are still in contact.
I recommend you the programs from Chile Inside! The agency was available for me 24-hours and the other Au-pairs as well. You can learn a lot in one of these programs and it will be an unforgettable time in your life. Thank you, Chile Inside!
