Babysitting / child care
Help in the house
- first of all, staying with our family will be a very rich and positive experience.
We love to focus more on quality relationship and we think that stays longer than 1-2 months are important to know a culture and enrichen the human experience. We are so human that as soon as you meet us, you can tell immediately! :). Feedback from our previous helpers tell this!
- We love cooking and we are pretty good at it; we could teach you how to cook healthy dishes
- We really care, we need everyone can get the outmost from this amazing experience!
Looking for females, (sorry but we are not willing to host males).
If you wish to join our family, we would like you to take this volunteering SERIOUSLY and in the meantime as the way to live a wonderful experience and explore the world.
We need someone funny, smiling, very lively, talkative and emphatic.
We need someone who has experience with kids.
Your commitment consists in around 25 hours a week. 2 days off a week guaranteed and normally the schedule depends on the host dad's roster. Anyway, our ideal Workawayer travels when she is off so that the family can have private moments.
The MAIN tasks:
- TEACHING ENGLISH when staying with kids or taking them to/picking them at school. (School is just in front of the house) and looking after the 1 year old Iris when mummy has to help the other kids to do homework.
You'll never be asked to look after the 3 kids alone at the same time. Generally the care is a one-to-one or one-to-two.
- HELP IN THE House: clean yr room and shared bathroom or whatever is needed depending on the schedule. Emptying trash bins, sweep, do dust, fold clothes, etc.
We are quite organized so that the schedule is always clear and you know when you have your free time and sometimes can happen you can help less than 5 hours and the remaining hours will be done on another day.
We need the main help above all after 2-3 pm.
So, the help required is mainly while mum is at home. The volunteer will never stay alone with the 3 children. Just one or 2 at a time.
English, Spanish, French
We live in a modern apartment (2 floors).
On the 1st floor you'll find the kitchen, living room, your PRIVATE room (with a comfy foldable couch) and the SHARED bathroom.
The apartment is close to the train station where you get the train and reach VENICE within 25 minutes or TREVISO (10 minutes).
Our apartment is located in a small town where pizza's, bars, post office, railway station can be reached within walking distance.
There are many green areas where you can do jogging, running or bike (you can have a bike at your best convencience).
- Food is included but not meal's preparation.
So, you'll be required to set table and clean kitchen after lunch and dinner and/or looking after kids while the host mum is preparing meals (this part won't be considered in the hours of help).
Our main ingredients are home made, like olive oil and tomato sauce.
So, we have a very healthy nutrition (with some treat sometimes) :-)
We are not looking for someone who can work for us but be part of the family, talking to us if there is any issue, doubt or whatever.
We can't wait to hear from you all!!
We live in a very calm town and we are very close to main attractions. All services are at a walking distances, the railway station as well to reach Treviso or Venice or other nice places.
We would be very happy to give lots of ideas and tricks to travel, we are lovers of travels and we normally travel quite a lot!
