We are a Franco-belgian family of 5 (Emile 7, Madeleine 5 and new baby Héloïse). I am a freelance writer for children, and my husband is the country director of a small Belgian NGO. We have been living in Cambodia for 10 years now and we all speak fluent Khmer. We live in a traditional wooden house in the very centre of Phnom Penh (Bang Keng Kong 1).
Babysitting / child care
We speak French, English and Khmer. We know Cambodia and the region very very well and will be able to help and advise you to make the most of your time here and help you if you plan to visit other countries in the region.
We will do our best to introduce you to cambodian culture, politics and everyday life in a family.
We are looking for a friendly, English or French speaking person who likes children who can help out get our 2 older kids ready fo school in the morning (6:30-8am) and help with the bedtime routine in the evening (6-8pm) Mon-Fri. We usually have dinner at 6pm and then play a board or card game with the older kids, then read a story and... lights out by 8pm!
My husband often travels abroad and since I now have a newborn, I am looking for someone to give me a hand during these two critical times of the day when he is away.
Right now it looks like he will be away the first half of October, and the entire month of January. Do enquire about other times, as his trips can be organised at the last minute.
French, English, Khmer
We will put you up in a studio appartement adjacent to our house (we will share the terrace). It’s nice and quiet and you won’t hear the family from there. The studio has a King Size bed, aircon, a bathroom and a separate room with a small kitchenette.
You're welcome to have breakfast and dinner with us anytime.
Phnom Penh has a lot to offer. There are lots of sights to visit, bars and restaurants of all budgets and cuisine. You can chill out by a pool or relax in a luxury spa for very little money. It is easy and safe to get out and about, with uber-style apps for motos, tuktuks and taxis. Travellers who come here often come back as expatriates!
