Babysitting Agency Bristol

Babysitter | 7 years experience with housekeeping and kids

Au pair 06/2003 - Kathrin Schecker (20 years) was seven months as an au pair girl in the city of Bristol. Bristol is located on the west coast of England. We have asked them about their experience as an au pair.

Kathrin, how did you come up with the idea to go as an au pair girl abroad?
I always wanted to do something with family and children, and since I speak very good English, was offered at that. Actually I wanted to go to America, so in the U.S., but then I was too far, and I decided to go to England.

You went right after school?
Yes, after my high school. I was less than a month to finish school and I'm already flown to England. But after six months, I was from August 2001 to April 2002 in Bristol, I then get very homesick for my family. And I so do not want to burden my host family, I am rather gone back to Germany.

As you have read up?
I checked on the internet, looked for phone numbers of agencies. After a week I had an appointment with an agency in Hanover. Here, I then get a lot of important information. The agency pointed out to me that I can go abroad to school, what is there for families, as it is with the pocket money, or what tasks I have to perform in the home. I was able to make calls with the family in England then also. A concise forty-five minutes we talked. The family was very fond of me and chose me. Yes, and then it went off immediately.

In what type of family you come?
My host family was very great. My host mother Dingle comes from a Jamaican family, she is a doctor and single mother. Amma at the time was six years old, and went to the first class.

As you have been added to the family?
Super. Amma looked at me as their big sister. It was also used, because her family had several au pairs. With Dingle I have understood me well, we were on the same wavelength, and have very good talk. With the language, there were no problems, I was able to communicate well, I was also assigned two English courses at the community college to my university English. Amma was my English sometimes quite funny and has always improved me. It was totally relaxed. But Dingle helped me when you can only speak English, you simply learn faster.

What tasks did you have in the family?
So Amma had to be at 8:00 clock in school, I did. 8.30 clock In the morning I got up around 6:00 am so clock and have the breakfast prepared for both. Then I cleaned together with Amma's teeth, helped her dressing, breakfast, mostly she still played a bit while I packed my things. Then I brought them to school, and then I went to my school. At 11:00 clock I was at home again, and I washed, vacuumed or done something for the school. At three, I then Amma picked up from school. Most we went to the park, or they played with a neighbor boy. In warm weather, we went swimming. Dingle was around six and then has cooked. After dinner we heard a bit of watching TV or radio. On the weekends I did not make as much. But I still am busy with Amma because it was fun. If Dingle weekend evening times would go away, they paid me for babysitting.

What have you found to be very strange?
The food. My host family has been eating completely vegetarian: a lot of rice, soya and tofu. I had to change quite beautiful, there was no meat to eat. But I could not bring meat home with you or place it in the refrigerator.
But also in the restaurants the food tastes different, then I'm more likely to initially gone MacDonalds. But the vegetarian food has liked me then. Meanwhile, I'm also a vegetarian, I just noticed it makes me feel good. The switch to a different diet was really a great experience for me.

I NEED A BABYSITTER! to watch 16 & 3 month olds

I am looking for a mature & experienced babysitter to watch my 2 small children. I have 2 boys which are 16 months old & 3 months old. Watching 2 small children does require a lot of patience! You MUST have work related references!!!
I live in the University area & would require babysitting to be done at my home. I do not need a babysitter everyday, only about once a week. I would only be gone 2-6 hours each time. You will be paid on an hourly basis. Hourly wadge anywhere from $5.50 - $7 an hour (determined by experience) Basically, I need someone to watch my children if me & my husband ever decide to go out

Pls. Help. I nd. Advice. I used to babysit my

Son for the last 7 months from 12 hors a day since I work grave and swing. Now my gf since we seperated two weeks ago just decided to give one day a week to babysit my son. We are not married, I have not proved paternity yet but no one is disputing my fatherhood right now. She wants to pay all the babysitting but I used to do it voluntarily now I am deprived and charged for her prefernce and choices. I moved out five blocks away two weeks ago to visit my son daily and babysit him. Now since my visitation privileges have been revoked I need a 12 hour diversion. I sought out a place in Santa Monica 70 miles away from OC to follow my passion

Babysitting Rates $$$

I'm a 19 year old college student who has been babysitting since 13 years old - before then, I was a mother's helper. I wanted to know what parents think I should charge an hour for babysitting jobs (or/and what they pay their babysitter). I live on the North Shore of Long Island.
My experience:
babysitting since 13 (6 years+)
Several families - but mainly 2 - one family with twins since the age of 2, another family with 4 kids since the ages of 9 months, 4, 7 and 8.
(I have even watched all 6 children together at times since they were neighbors.)
Worked in a daycare center for 6 months, working with children from ages 2 months to 5 years old

The real value of a teacher

Cons sit on their fat asses and bitch all day long that teachers do not do their jobs, yet the real job of teachers is to babysit their inbred brats all day and try to do the parents' job of motivating them then teaching them, so they are glorified babysitter...but lets look at the reality
If you get it right down to it, teachers usually teach 7 hours a day - physical teaching, not prep, but in the classroom babysitting your mouth breathers
They work 5 days a week
They work say 8 months of the year - 32 weeks babysitting your mouth breather idiot
Average class size is 30 for this discussion
pay for babysitting is $8 an hour
now add it up, if the teacher would quit and do the same they do at their own daycare
they would make $268,800
so...
