Cheney Collins

Carla’s Au Pairs North West Office

Cheney has always had an interest and love for other cultures, countries and their historical backgrounds. When she was 14 years old she got the chance to travel to Europe & visited countries such as Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland. This was a life changing trip for her & the travel bug bit hard! This inspired her to Au Pair in the Netherlands after school as she wanted to feel what it will be like living with a family from another culture.

The Netherlands stole her heart and she became very close with her host family. She got the chance to learn Dutch & to travel & see more of Europe. Her love for languages grew even stronger and upon returning from Europe, she started studying Language & Literature. She is extremely excited to share her passion for other cultures with others & to help young people not only to reach for their dreams, but to achieve it too! Her motto: If your dreams don’t scare you, they are not big enough!

Maryke Collins

Manager Carla’s Au Pairs North West Office

As a mother of an ex-Au Pair, Maryke developed an interest in cultural exchange. She is the mother of three children and two of her daughters participated in cultural exchange programmes. As an ex-teacher end entrepreneur, she is excited to help young ladies to participate in cultural exchange programmes because she knows what positive things a year abroad can bring to a young lady’s world.

A few years ago, Maryke had the opportunity to travel to Thailand and it made her realize how important knowledge of other cultures is. It is very important to have knowledge of other cultures so that it can broaden our minds.
Her passion lies in teaching and therefore she is very excited to help with the training of future Au Pairs. Being the mother of an ex-aupair she will gladly be a shoulder to cry on for mothers that are finding it difficult to let their daughters go.

She believes that it is never too late to start new adventures. That is why she decided to join the CAP team and help make dreams come true.

Claudine is a mother of an only son and stepmom to 2 daughters. She had the opportunity to visit Thailand twice and Myanmar as well. Her love of cultures and people’s uniqueness is unmatched. She is a self-driven person who is driven by a passion for life, people and adventure. She taught English in Thailand in 2015 – 2016 and re-visited in 2019, from there moved over to a very undeveloped Myanmar where the potential is hugely misjudged. Claudine is very upfront and honest & has some advice to share with you: Feeling scared and alone whilst traveling to other countries …… She has been there, and will always try to assist others traveling to not feel scared and alone. Feeling confused and vulnerable …… She has been there, not knowing where to go and what to do, however she knows you are a go getter and can always makes it work. Feeling anxious and extremely excited ….. She has been there, mixed emotions and feelings always make an appearance when traveling on your own. In a nutshell, Claudine’s experience is to a huge advantage for anyone who wants to travel & start their Au Pair journey. Her motto by which she lives her life “Two things in life lost that can never be caught up is “Lost time and missed opportunities”

Bianca Barnard – Au Pair in USA

Where do I even begin? I was anxious, stressed, scared and really hesitant about starting this journey because I had no idea where to start. I came across CAP and thinking back now, I can’t believe that I even felt stressed because my process and journey was so smooth! Carla’s Au Pairs has the nicest, most supportive and hands-on staff that I have come across and they helped me every single step of the way. I had so many questions and was hesitant about everything but they helped me so well and I never felt alone or anxious during my journey. I was that person that overthought every single thing I sent to them and they never let me feel like I was annoying them, or being extra. They made me feel comfortable the whole entire time.

So many girls reached out to me after my match post was posted on social media welcoming me into their sisterhood and I feel right at home. I am so grateful for this agency and the doors they have opened for me. I will choose them again and again and I recommend working with them as much as I possibly can. I am so excited for the adventure lying ahead and I feel so relaxed and just positive because I know how well I am being taken care of.

So, if I could give anyone advice,

Take The Leap!
You’ll regret it if you don’t.

Mine Pretorius – Au Pair in USA

I would definitely recommend Carla’s Au Pairs to any girl seeking adventure and a family to join you on the journey. A special thanks to Cheney, she’s always there with support and advice to help you achieve your dreams! With Carla’s Au Pairs you are never alone!

Alicia Bruwer – Au Pair in the Netherlands and Belgium

I would recommend CAP to anyone who would like to Au pair. They support you from the start and are always there for advice. Cheney helped me from the very first day and without her my journey would not have been possible. Thank you so much.
