Ages of children

It is very important to pay special attention to the ages of the children before taking any au pair job. Children under two years of age need constant attention and it might be little overwhelming to take care of a young child for a young au pair. Make sure you have experience in the age group you are signing up for. Child development is very important and the caretaker should know the needs of the age group. Read some books or articles. Find out the characteristics of the age and assess yourself to see if you are able to care for a child of a particular age group.
