    Description

    Please contact in Spanish
    We are a family made up of Kayson (5 years old), Yannick (3 years old), Kyara (1 year old) and Blythe (mother) and Pedro (father). We have just emigrated to France and we are looking for a house in the Vendée area. I hope to have it in March, so we need volunteers who want to live with us as a family and practice languages.

    Help

    I need help at home (cleaning, washing machines, cooking) and with the children (basic care, outdoor activities, a lot of games ...), taking care of them at specific times. I am looking for someone who above all has experience in caring for young children, since it is not the same that you like children that you have to live with them, their cries and screams can become stressful and you have to be prepared for it. We like to share everything and make the volunteer feel like another member of the family. If the boys go to kindergarten and school, more or less there are stipulated schedules, but if for some reason they cannot go, modifications arise. We have done very well with volunteers who want to learn Spanish or Portuguese, since they are the ones who really integrate into the family, with children you learn a lot !! But also with volunteers who enjoy family life and children.


    Necesito ayuda en casa (limpiar, lavadoras, cocinar) y con los niños (cuidados básicos, actividades en el exterior, mucho juego..), cuidarlos en momentos puntuales. Buscamos voluntarios que sobre todo tenga experiencia en cuidado de niños pequeños, ya que no es lo mismo que te gusten los niños a que tengas que convivir con ellos, sus llantos y gritos pueden llegar a estresar y hay que estar preparado para ello. A nosotros nos gusta compartirlo todo y hacer sentir a la persona voluntaria un miembro más de la familia. Si los chicos van a la guardería y escuela, más o menos hay unos horarios estipulados, pero si por alguna causa no pueden ir, surjen modificaciones. Nos ha ido muy bien con voluntarios que quieren aprender Español o Portugués, con los niños se aprende mucho!!

    What else ...

    At home we have a rule, mobile phones do not sit with us to eat at the table! And of course it doesn't bother with high volume, headphones are used.

    En casa tenemos una norma, los teléfonos móviles no se sientan con nosotros a comer a la mesa! Y por supuesto no se molesta con volumen alto, se utilizan auriculares.
