Merle (Au Pair/Educator)

Merle was a live in Au Pair with a local family who we supported in her role caring for the children at home.  

I am happy to hand this reference over to Connections In The Home, who have supported me in my in role as an Educator.

I was contracted to the family, however Connections supported me in my position caring for their daughter (4 years old now).  The Programme Coordinator met regularly to discuss Orla's development in different areas including motor development, school readiness and emotional well being.  We were able to develop new learning plans and respect her current interests, allowing her to have fun while learning.

Connections In The Home provided me with free professional development opportunities supporting us in ensuring professional care, and safety for the children.  For example I attend First Aid training, workshops about Child Protection, literacy and school preparation for children.  These opportunities helped me to improve my planning for the children's learning and to understand their behaviour.

There are also weekly events and outings organised by Connections In The Home, where we meet up with other Educators and children.  Everyone, children and adults, enjoyed meeting with others, socialising and sharing ideas.  For example Crazy Craft and Magic Mat Time.  Connections also like to support the local event Toddlerock in the C3 Church in Highland Park which was great too.

All I can say, as I leave to live in Europe, is that I got great help from the Connections In The Home team in developing and extending the children's learning and developmental progress.'

Thank you, Merle.
