Hello, I'm Kyoko. We are looking for a big sister native or fluent English speaker who can help us with childcare in exchange for accomodation.
No meals are provided, but you'll have your private kitchen in your room.
We are in Inazawa City within 10-min train ride from Nagoya, located in the center of Japan.
(Inazawa is 45-min express train ride from CHUBU Centrair International Airport, Nagoya)
We are a family of three --- I'm 43 years old, and my husband is 44 years old. He is a teacher. My son is now in the first grade.
Babysitting / child care
If you like, you can practice speaking Japanese with us adults, interact with our parents, who live next to our house, and experience and learn Japanese culture .
We have a bike you can use to go around the city --- five minutes' bicycle ride to the station, two minutes' to the convenience store, three minutes' to the shopping mall and the supermarket.
We hope our ordinary daily life gives something special to you.
We'd like for you to talk with our 6-year-old son in English for a few hours a day and help him to improve his English.
Our son, Shumpei, attended an international pre-schcool in Japan for 4 years, so he speaks English. But now he goes to Japanese elementary school and has few chances to speak English, so he needs your help.
We'd like you to talk and play with him in English doing something fun: doing workbooks, playing games, reading books, playing sports, telling him stories about trivia and general knowledge or your travel experience, etc.
He is a funny, lively boy but I think he is easy to calm down, and he might be a bit shy at first.
He likes Pokémon, LEGO, Nintendo DS, board & card games, science, soccer and learning something new.
Please note that we don't serve meals. Your room has a private kitchen. You'll need to buy or prepare your own meals. When we eat out, join us if you like.
You'll have a furnished room with its own private entrance in our house. It's like a small studio apartment room with your own kitchen (incl. utensils, a microwave oven, a toaster oven, an electric kettle, a fridge, etc) and your own wash room (incl. a shower, a toilet, a sink, a washing machine, a hairdryer, etc).
You'll feel secure as we can assist you if you have a trouble.
Enjoy your stay in Japan !
