We're an Italian family living in Northern Italy, we live in near Lecco in Lombardy, near the lake of Como, surrounded by the lake and the mountains.
We'd like to get help for my litte daughter Stella, that begun her second year of primary school this September.
Stella is a curious girl, she likes to play, drawing and singing. She is very social and pleasant, but she is known to be stubborn. She goes swimming to the local swimming pool and she has begun a synchronised swimming course last year.
She waits impatiently for a girl/boy who is going to be with her!
We also have another daugher, Marisol who's a quiet and reserved girl. She is indipendent: she has a scooter and she goes on the bus when she needs it. She likes to listening to music and going to the cinema.
Stefano is a famous Italian chef and works hard. He likes to play tennis and to go by bicycle.
My name is Arely, I'm a primary school teacher. I like cinema and to practise yoga.
Last but not least our family has a siberian kitten named Sherry.

Projects involving children
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Our daughters attend school and we need help with the youngest for the after school activities and to speak in English. It's very important to have a driving license. We would like someone that can give a contribute with cooking and home chores.
From workaway we would like to have help with the weekly planning, someone that plays with Stella and takes her to the swimming lessions.
We need someone that takes home Stella after school (she goes to a private school in the near city), and sometimes take her to school.

We'd also like somebody that is willing to stay for a long-medium period.
You'll live in our home, we are organizing a bedroom for you. Our home has three floors and in the third room there are three bedrooms and a bathroom, in the second floor there in the kitchen, the living room a bathroom and your bedroom.
