    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    In the last 7 years we have had 8 au pair: 3 males and 5 females.
    We are a welcoming family, we have many friends and we like sharing experiences with them. The boys and girls who helped us with the children in these years come to visit us every year, so sometimes the house is full!
    Florence is a lively city which offers many opportunities both cultural and fun, we can help you to find interesting things to do.

  • Help


    We are looking for a person who really love staying and playing with the children and if possible speaks his mother tongue with us. Otto and Arno are two very nice boys they're very energetic but sweet at the same time.
    We need help from the beginning of September since the end of june 2018.
    The children will start school the 18th of September, so we need you to take care of them in the mornings until they start going regularly. From the beginning of the school we need help to pick up the younger from school 2 days at 4,30 and 3 days at 2,30. We also need you to take care of the boys when they are home from school sick or if the school is closed. We ask you to stay with the children 10/15 hours for five days, normally during the afternoon and eventually 1 evening. You'll have weekends free.

  • Accommodation


    We offer you a big room with a big bed, a cupboard, a small bookcase and a little writing-desk. The bathroom is shared. In our home we have internet connection. We can give you a bike to move in the city. Our house is very close to the river Arno near a beautiful green area where you can practice sport or if you like, you can have long and beautiful walks. We have 3 supermarkets close to home, where you can find anything you want.

    What else ...

    The most important thing for us is to find a person who really love staying and playing with the children, another request is flexibility: some days we will not need help, so you'll be completely free, other days we need more help.
