Natashia was born and raised in Frankfort (Free state) and travelled a lot as a child. She currently resides in Vaalpark Sasolburg. Since a young age she had a passion to work with children and always wanted to become an Au Pair abroad.
In 2008 she decided to take a leap of faith and make her dream adventure to become an Au Pair abroad a reality. She got the opportunity to Au Pair for 2 years in England for a South African / Irish family. That was the start for a once in a lifetime experience for her. In 2010 she Au Paired in the Netherlands and thereafter in Belgium. While she was in the Netherlands, she got the chance to learn Dutch & travel a lot to places like Paris and Berlin. In Belgium she travelled with her host family to the South of France and the South of Spain for the summer holidays.
It’s Natashia’s passion to help young women make their dreams come true by Au Pairing abroad. She will always be grateful for Carla & the CAP Team for this amazing adventure that helped her to become more independent and meet new people from different countries. Natashia would love to inspire young women to experience their own wonderful adventure of being an Au Pair abroad and she is more than happy to assist them in making their dreams become a reality.

Recruiter Western Cape & beyond
Angelene was raised in Hermanus, Western Cape. Her sister is 11 years younger than her so naturally she was very good with children. She has always been driven by the idea of exploration and travel – with Europe being one of her top destinations to visit. Combining her love and passion for playing a positive role inthe lives of children, working abroad, and travelling she knew Au Pairing would be the best way to make this all come together. She got placed as an Au Pair in the Netherlands in 2011 with a wonderful host family.
During that life-changing year she travelled to 10 different countries and was fascinated by all the different cultures. She met so many amazing people that made her feel at home in Europe. She is still very close with her host family and they connect on a monthly basis. Angelene strongly believes that every young person who enjoys working with children, meeting new people, and learning about different cultures should take this opportunity to make their dreams a reality.
If you want to Au Pair abroad, feel free to contact Angelene for friendly assistance.

My name is Rune. I am currently an Au Pair in the Netherlands. I started my journey in September 2017. I have about 2 months left before I return to my home country. My time abroad was one of the most challenging opportunities that I had. Looking after two wonderful boys were a privilege.
If I had any questions or was unsure about anything, Marelise from Carla’s Au Pairs, was always ready and eager to help me. Never have I had to remind her to respond back to me, If she couldn’t help me immediately she would do her best to find out and get back to me as soon as possible. Not only did she answered my questions, she always motivated me. She is always friendly.
