We were also very nervous about this first time experience as we heard some negative stories from friends and family.
After Theresa's arrival we spent a whole week to show her our needs and get her into our routine. This went nice and smoothly, but I think it was mainly down to Theresa, who was keen to do well and made sure she clarified all the instructions that weren't very clear.
After that week we were comfortable enough with her to let her take the kiddies out by car for full day activities and the kids loved her straight away and we strongly believe she had an amazing time with us too :-)
We found a good friend and basically a new family member and we are really sad to see her go, but she put our trust back into this business :-) Thank you AuPairWorld to make this happen!
