  • Description


    hello there !
    we're looking for an english speaking person to help me (the mum) to look after our children (2008, 2009,2014 and 2018)

    from 4 till 6 Or 10 months if you want !

    Boys are homeschooled so all day long at home !
    Daily family life in countryside, south west of France, not close from a city !

    ideally with a car will be great for you to have some freedom ! no french class available, but I'm fluent in english and would love the children to learn ! and we could give you private french lessons if needed.

    all week-end free (either to travel a bit or to stay with us) , own small bedroom but family bathroom to share with us ;) no smoking inside!
    we also have 2 cats, a rabbit and a fish tank !

    basically i'll need help to entertain children while I'm homeschooling, to give me a hand for that (like keep one busy while i'm having a private lesson with the older ...) , play with them all afternoon, walk, babysit them when i have doctors appointment, help around with laudry, cooking, very light cleaning and give a hand for shopping !

    we live in a nice rural area of south Charente, plenty to see around, Angoulême, Bordeaux, sea less than 2 hours away .... wine, food, lots to discover !
    small bedroom but big house !

    bouncy and lively boys are waiting for you !!!! tired muumy too !!!!

    we live in a rural and beatiful part of France, having time in family will mean spending proper "french life" with us for a month or more :) discovering new culture, other ways of life, how to entertain children too :)
    not much to do without a car though ;)

  • Help


    I need a hand with 3 lively boys and a baby girl, keep them entertain and busy, teach them some english, help around with really light cleaning, some cooking, some babysitting during doctors appointments. All week-end will be free (either spend time with us)
    having your own car will be a good idea too for you to have more freedom ! we are lost in countryside ! no bus or train !
