    We are looking for a 20’s girl (or more) to take care our children Anita 5 yo and Ernesto 2yo, in Florence, speaks with them in English, Spanish or German languages.
    We will wish a dynamic person, friendly, flexible and above all sociable.
    Only "duty" to take care of children and their things with passion and satisfaction (no mobile phone while watching children, or passive attitude). Help around the house, cooking and sometimes, if you are interesting, helping whit the cottage vegetable garden the olive harvest in november.
    We offer a single room in one characteristic apartment of Oltrarno to share with another people around the world, very close to our house in Via del Leone.

    Both we work on shifts so it 's not possible to do a fixed weekly schedule, but it could certainly help us every day in some of these tasks:

    doing the school run,
    entertain them in the afternoon
    accompany them to any extra activities
    stay with them some Saturday
    keep them occasionally in the evening
