I work in the historical center where I rent an apartment to tourists. My husband is a photographer. We love travelling and sports. In the morning we wake up around 8.30. My daughter will end up her 5th year of primary school in June, then she will go to summer camp and from July 1st she will be back home, so we will be ready to host you from that date. We would like you to spend some time with her during the daytime (4/5 hours except the weekends). We need someone who loves kids and is able to teach/speak English while playing.
We all live in Sesto Fiorentino a small village right outside Florence. By train, in 10 minutes you can reach Florence's historical centre.
Babysitting and creative play
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
They could spend time with us, have breakfast, lunch and dinner together and understand italian culture getting to know a local family.
We are looking for a caring and reliable person (english mother tongue) who would like to help us with our child. Our 10 years old girl understands English but we would like her to listen to a different accent and start to speak the language.
Our ideal volunteer will stay for about 3 weeks and we might host her in a house close to ours, so she can be independent and come over to our house for babysitting, for the meals and whenever she wants.
A very nice house with a garden. Private room in an apartment close to ours
