Hello, we are searching for a volonteer for the winter period, starting around half November, we have young kids and we prefer longer stays, 60-90 days. We are a family of four people, Pierpaolo (father), Vuokko (mother) Sebastian and Karin.
I speak fluent English, Pierpaolo can speak and is always learning, Sebastian speaks and understand english too. Karin was born in an intercultural envioroment. We speak Italian, Slovenian and English, we are all learning German too but now we just know some words!
Our closest relatives live in the area, Sebastian's grandparents, uncles and cousin, and the one that moved out when are back in town always come to visit us.
Sebastian is 4 years old, he was born on August 14th 2014. Karin is one, was born in September 2017. We like learning from other cultures, we love outdoor life, sea, mountains and walks in the country side. We also enjoy ice-cream, coffe and chocolate. We often to go out for pizza, and ice-cream or some traditional meals. We love animas even if we do not have any at home at the moment. Sebastian's grandmother has a huge dog, that all her grandkids love!

Hello, we joined work away in september 2018, and we are hosting our second guest, we are a host family from more than 2 years, we hosted young students from all the world in exchange programs, we joined work away because we love to live in an international house, and we would love our kids to be open minded. We need some somebody that would like to join our family, and feel like a relative for us (till now always happened with success) and that helps us with the kids. In our family we both work. I, Vuokko, am a pharmacist, I work part time Pierpaolo is a dentist, he leaves the house at 8:30 am and comes back around 20:00 from monday to friday.
School starts around 15th September for Sebastian (4,5 years old)and first week in October for Karin (1,5 year sold).
We need somebody that helps us in the morning , to get ready for breakfast and to keep an eye on the kids while we are getting ready.We ask our guest to pick up Sebastian or Karin in school at 15:30, it is 15 minutes walking from home. We ask some 2 hours of childcare, in the afternoon usually 4 afternoons. In a house with kids there are always toys everywhere and our guest task is to keep them in order. In the week days we ask to take care of the dish washer.Could it be that rarely we would ask for evening childcare.We would like our guest to speak his native language to the kids, tell them and us about their country. Helping us to keep the house in order and be like a relative to us. We need somebody that loves to stay outside, and enjoys walking, both schools are in a walking distance, 20 minutes. We are interested in creating a durable relation with our guest so that when the kids will be older we could met some where in the planet :-).
We have a house keeper that does major work once a week, so the house work is very light, mainly consist in reordering toys,setting /reordering the table and filling /empting the dishwasher.
