Hello! We are a family of 4 people, my husband Antonio and me, and two kids: a girl of 10, Matilde, and a boy of 8, Edoardo.
Edoardo has special needs i.e. a learning disability. He walks, runs and plays, he is able to use the toilet but needs to be taken to the bathroom and helped with self-care activities such as getting washed and dressed. He wears a nappy just at night-time. He is able to talk and he is a very sociable little boy but he requires more supervision than a child of his age. Helping with Edoardo's childcare and playing with him would be one of the main task we'd require.
Matilde is a very sweet and patient girl, even more mature of her age, and she enjoys reading, playing boardgames and a lot of other things: she's studying English at school and soon is starting studying Spanish. Ability to help practice an additional language such as English or Spanish would be very appreciated.

Antonio and I both work full time. I work usually in the morning (often starting early) and I am generally home by 1600. My husband works long days and is generally home at 1900. The children are generally in school 08-13. Antonio gets the children ready in the morning and take the children to school before going to work and I have a regular babysitter who picks them up from school most days and helps until I am back home in the early afternoon. Your role would be making lunch for the children (so it is ready by the time they are back from school) and helping with looking after the kids around 4 hours a day every afternoon (generally alongside me or their regular babysitter). If the COVID situation improves we may also be asking for some occasional babysitting in the evening.
We do not require any major cleaning but just to clean after yourself and help keeping the kids' toys and rooms tidy. Being an extra pairs of hands, entertaining the kids, organise some creative playing, taking them out to play outdoors ( and swimming in the communal swimming pool within our building when the weather gets warm) will be your main activities.

Antonio and I are natural born travellers and we hope to go back soon to that beautiful habit! I speak a very good English and I'd like my daughter to practice hers. She is going to start studying Spanish at school and it would be nice if she could have the opportunity to spend some time with a spanish speaker. Moreover my husband speaks a good Spanish and I speak a little Spanish too. I used to study a little French and German, but they're a bit rusted now. We'd be happy to help a foreign person to learn Italian and practicing
