We are and International Family with two boys aged 9 and 11 living in the North of Italy.
Dad is French while mom is Italian but bilingual (American/Italian).
We would like to have some help with our kids, mainly in the afternoon, after school so we are looking for a nice, proactive, playful, joyful girl able to be sweet but give firm boundaries...... all this speaking ONLY ENGLISH.
The goal is to expose the kids to English during playtime and to start teaching them a bit of reading and writing.
We would appreciate a proper teacher or similar but it is not a must.
Some light house cleaning will be included (as you would do at your home)
We will consider YOU part of our family and you will have your own room and a lot of free time to visit beautiful Italy and to take language courses or do anything else.
We would appreciate if you could consider staying for a period of 2-3 months ...... or even more, if you wish :)
I hope you will like to stay with us.
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
We like to live a healthy lifestyle, try to avoid eating too much meat, even though we do eat meat, fish and dairy but we try to prefer whole grain stuff.
We would also prefer to have a MORNING PERSON -
No drugs, no smoke, no or moderate alcohol, no sleeping all day.
The helper will be in charge of the kids, will play and read with our 2 boys speaking ONLY English
We want someone who really HAS FUN with kids, someone who LIKES staying with them, to play at their level, creative, artistic, joyful but very well organised, self motivated, PROCATIVE and clean.
Playing is fun BUT we also need you do give clear rules and bouderies.
Playing the piano or the guitar will be a PLUS we appreciate as we would love our kids to start approaching MUSIC !!!
We have a lady who cleans the house so no need to do that but we will ask for everyday normal work at home (setting the table for dinner, laundery, load-unload dishwasher and so)+light errands when needed.
We ALL want to live in a clean and unmessy house ... so we ALL co operate to keep it clean and tidy :-)
Nothing more than what you would do at home for yourself.
PLEASE DO NOT CONSIDER a stay in our family if you are untidy, sloppy and YOU DO NOT LIKE TO CLEAN after yourself !!!
