Lisa K. from the Netherlands (53707)

Born: 1996 | Start date: June/July/August| Length of stay: 12 months | Preferred area: Big city, town, suburb | Driving license: Yes | Age group: 0-14

Experience:
I work at an organization called Small steps since November 2016. The age group is 0-13. I work at different locations as a substitute with different groups. With the children from 0-4, we play a lot outside or we do an activity, like crafts, play a game or just play with the child along. With the children from 4-13, they come from school to us. We plan an activity that they can do, or they play outside, or play a game, cuddling, singing and reading books.

Motivation:
My reason for becoming an au pair is, I want to see a little bit of the world. I like to work with children and I thought why I couldn’t combine them together. When I was in school some classmates have done this. It was always in my mind. Now I am at a point that I can do this.

Hobbies:
My biggest hobby is singing. I sing in a choir called reaching hand. Every Friday for 13 years. Last Christmas we did a concert with an orchestra. It was a lot of fun and exciting to do. Also I like to do knitting and crocheting. Watch a movie or series. Every Sunday my mother and I are going for a walk. At least we try to do. And I read a lot of books.
