    We would need someone to help us with the kids, from now on up to the end of June 2021. After that, the kids will be in France for the summer so we would need someone to mind our 2 shi tzu and cuddle our 2 goats, (who are self sufficient) and tidy up the house while the kids are away.
    We have been doing that for the last few years and it worked really well we think. We met lovely people from all over the world and it was a big bonus to our family.
    At the moment, we need help after school , 4 days /week for our 3 kids. (Our 14 years old is completely independent with her homework).
    That means supervising homework for the 2 boys (a good level of English is a plus😂) playing with them (soccer, board games, drawing...) preparing their dinner if we are not at home.
    We would also require help in tidying, especially managing kids clothes, kids bedroom and playroom with their help, and cleaning the table after dinner when we are not at home.
    Music /drama are a + if you are into that!!❤️. We love creativity and enthusiasm 😊
