Region: AlsaceWe are a family of 6 (2 adults and 4 children between 11 and 1 year). We live north of Strasbourg in Alsace. Children go to school and learn foreign languages. We find it very interesting to have in our house foreigners who can help us discover other countries, other cultures and other languages. Nathan, Noé, Gabin and Oscar are very happy to meet someone who comes an other country. He or she who comes to live with us, will essentially take care of children after school, and the baby a few hours in the week. The rest of the time, hours of housework or cooking are welcome! Mathieu has worked in the computer industry and Geraldine is a part-time teacher. We will be delighted to welcome a dynamic person close to the children.
