    " NEXT AVAILABILITY FROM APRIL TO All 2020"... Hello people!!. I am Simona and my husband is Gaetano we are both young and fun (i think) and have two beautiful boys, Michael and Nicholas aged 9and 7. We don't accept shot stay😉.... I work in a supermarket as a shop assistant and in a bar too, my husband is in the Italian Air Force. We have one cat (Diego) and a BIG black rescue puppy , called Sebastian!!!!

    We've had many positive workawayer experiences, they have all become like family and they regularly come to visit us.

    We consider ourselves to be a loving, active and crazy family and our two boys will definitely keep you on your feet, i promise you will never be bored! If you consider us we would like you to take this seriously and treat it as any other job but to also treat this as a life experience where you can meet new people, possibly learn a new language and discover a new way of life.

    We want someone who is fun, loving and caring who will sing and dance (badly) with me ;) and will keep the boys entertained! We'll need you to pick them up from school etc... We don't just want someone to work for us, we want someone to be part of our family, a big sister or brother for the boys! We are looking for a girl or boy who is mother tongue is English as we wish for our two children to become completely bi-lingual. Both the boys speak incredibly good English but now we are working on maintaining and perfecting their ability. We would like you to teach them English by playing games, puzzles, going to the park etc… Me and my husband can speak English very well, so there would be no need for you to learn Italian unless you wanted to.

    You will always have two days off a week.(Saturday-sunday), While you are here we would like you to help out with a little bit of housework, nothing serious, just things like hovering, emptying the dishwasher, sweeping and other normal house jobs. :D

    We don't have rules on what time you get home at night or if you stay out and come back the next day, however, we would like you to tell us when you go out. We would like you to have fun but want to keep you safe :)

    We would love it if you ate with us, and spent time with us as we want you to become and feel a part of the family, but, of course this isn't compulsory!

    There is an italian class in Treviso in the mornings where you can go twice a week,(winter time) we will be happy to pay for you to attend. The previous au pairs struggled because they found it hard to communicate with the teacher as he didnt speak english, however, everyones different it's worth a try if youre interested.
