    Description

    Hello, we are a happy small family of 3 living in the suburb of Paris. Me and my husband are a little bit more than 30 y-o and our son, Gauvain, was born in April 2019.

    We are living in a new house (it has been built last year), in a quiet district of Sarcelles. It is 10 minutes walking from the train station, which is connected to Paris (Gare du Nord) in less than 20 minutes.

    I’m a teacher in Primary School, I work in a school that is 5 minutes walking from home, and my husband is Product Owner, he works in Paris.

    Our little boy is now looked after by a childcare assistant but we asked for a place in the kindergarten in front of the school I worked for next year (we’re waiting for the committee). But the kindergarten opens at 8:30am and I have to be at work at 8:00 am.

    So we are looking for someone :
    - to take Gauvain to the kindergarten on Mondays, Tuesday, Thursdays and Fridays;
    - to return him home sometimes, when I have meetings;
    - to spend time, speaking English, with him the afternoons (from 5pm) and the Wednesdays morning so I can prepare my class;
    - to look after him occasionally if we have an outing planned;
    - to help a little bit with the house management (cleaning and cooking, a couple of times in the week).

    In return, you will be provided a private accommodation, meals and shared bathroom. You will have a lot of free time you can enjoy visiting Paris or the surrounding areas, there is a castle with a lovely forest 40 minutes by walking or 15 minutes by biking. If you like sport, we have basic sport equipment at home and there is a small stadium just in the bottom of our street, and our city is equipped with an Olympic swimming-pool.
    Moreover, we have internet access with WIFI. If you need, we can also lend you a computer.

    During the evenings, when baby is asleep, we enjoy playing board games or watching series so we would be pleased to share that with you if you’re interested in it.

    We need someone for a long term (September to June or more would be ideally but you can also stay for 2 or 3 months), during the school and kindergarten holidays, you would be free to stay at home or travel if you want to discover other parts of France or wherever. There are two weeks holidays between October and November, two weeks for Christmas, two weeks in February and two more weeks in April.

    Kinds regards,
    Sophie, Guilhem and Gauvain
