we are an Italian family of 4 people. Myself, Davide and two little girls of 5 Daria May, and 3 years old Mirea. I am a "Mammager" at the moment and a former researcher in Ecology and Environmental Science and Davide works for an Italian Oil Company where he takes care of Environmental Impact and Safety.
We are 37 and 40 years old, we are a dynamic and sporty family. I lived in Germany for 4 years before moving back to Italy in 2013. We used to travel a lot around Europe and the kids didn't stop us from flying around and visiting places.
We now live in Nicosia, Cyprus, since July 2017. We moved due to Davide's job that keeps him occupied everyday from 8 to 19:00. The girls and I are discovering the various activities that the city offers. Daria May and Mirea spend most of their time at the kindergarten, everyday from 8 to 15:30 and I spend it between the gym and the university.
We both love to speak English and want for our girls to grow in a bilingual environment. But if you are interested in learning Italian we can do some tandem experience!
I am staying at home at the moment studing for a big exam that will take place at the end of this year.
If you are interested in this beautiful divided country take the chance and come to us!
Babysitting / child care
Help in the house
I could teach some good italian recipe and we can have some italian/english conversation in the evenings! Plus, thee is Cyprus, a beautiful island full of nice people and historic places to visit!
We need somebody to help us with the children (getting them ready for school in the morning, picking them up in the afternoon and spend the afternoon with them) while I am studying and to talk to them in English in order to improve their language skills (and ours too!!). We are looking for an English speaker girl or guy, highly motiveted, positive thinker, who loves to make new activities and games with the children. Sincerely in love with them, full of initiative and patient. Looking forward to interesting and interested new people!
We are flexible to any request and we can work together out a weekly schedule for the family. Our guests are treated as part of the family!
It would be wonderful to find somebody starting in September with us until Christmas to help with the Children! In the meanwhile any short staying is also welcome!
We live in a big three floors house. you will have your own room and bathroom and share all the rest of the house with us.
Apart for the beautiful beaches, Nicosia is a lively city, with 5 Universities and many things going on during the year.
