Au Pair Jobs
I am currently working as a paralegal in a law firm in the city while studying my law degree in university. I love learning new things and travelling. I'm the eldest of 7 children with 1 set of twins one of them having a disability called Kabuki Syndrome growing up I was very hands on helping with my siblings with a 12 year age gap between myself and my youngest sibling. I am capable of caring for multiple children at 1 time as well as children with disabilities. I have been caring for children outside of my family since the age of 13. I was a nanny in Bondi for 4 years for 2 beautiful little boys who I still care for regularly. I’ve babysat for over 20 families and have volunteered with St John Ambulance since I was 12 finishing up at the age of 18 providing me with first aid training and experience. I’ve always loved helping others, I’m very caring and nurturing. I am also a huge lover of animals growing up with lots of pets in the family home. Always happy to do small house work required while caring for children, I love helping in anyway I can to make others lives as easy as I can.
16 families and businesses in your area recommended Chantal...
"Chantal arrived early and was graceful about us arriving home later than promised. We have three kids (9,6,3) unused to babysitters, one with special needs (CPAP/Speech disability) which Chantal handled brilliantly! All three loved her and she handled a difficult situation with disobedience just as I would have done in her position. The kids asked when she was coming again as soon as they woke this morning. Next week! "
From Jane - Balmain
"Chantal was pilot and punctual and helpful. She engaged with the kids and they were super excited to see her. She did not appear as confident to just muck in with the kids when she arrived while I was still around, but that could have been finding her feet. She also did a beautiful job folding some washing. I would recommend her."
From Sarah - Five Dock
"Chantal was amazing, and our 7 year old daughter said "I really liked her a lot!" We will definitely use Chantal again. Her communication was excellent, she was friendly and right on time, plus our daughter had a wonderful time."
