Worked with children before, if yes what ages were they? Yes, 1,5 years old

Her story: Nene has been working for the same family for 9 years. When she started to work there the youngest child was 1,5 years old and the mother was at home as well. But Nene was alone with the toddler several times a week when the mother quickly went out to go somewhere. We called the family plus a second family where she worked for 2 years for a testimonial. We placed her but the family could no longer afford her, they gave her a nice reference as well. In the meantime we placed her again and now she is only looking for work on the above day(s).

References: Yes, three

What the references said: Nene cleans very well. She is absolutely honest, nothing has gone missing ever.  She has been with me for 9 years now and is very reliable

Nene's English is very good and she just always comes.  She is well mannered and often alone at home.  She is also naturally good with children.

Nene worked for us for over a year. We got her from One Stop Domestic. She was never absent from work other than for planned leave. She is honest and worked completely unsupervised. She was good with our pets and made always sure all windows and doors were locked before leaving in the afternoons. I can also say that she irons very well. We could unfortunately no longer afford her.

Our observation: Nene is outgoing, likes to talk and socialize.  She is friendly and hard working.  She also asked a lot of questions which shows that she communicates well.
