    Description

    We are a friendly, simple and happy family of 4 and 2 dogs that are part of our life. We live in a detached house in the periphery (but closed to the center by bus)of Olbia, a beautiful town by the sea in the North of Sardinia, with a big garden. Olbia is a well connected city thanks to the airport which is situated inside the city. We are looking for a big sister for our kids, someone able to go with the flow of us. My husband works quite a lot during the week, I am 38 and I work with him in the morning, for the rest I do take care of the kids and the house, and I really like it, I love DIY especially Shabby chic painting,I love gardening and vegetable gardening, but most of all we all like going to the beach in summertime. In spring and autumn we like having a walk in the area with our dogs and hopefully the place where we live it allows us to do outdoor activities for almost the entire year. In winter time kids are quite busy, in the morning they go to school and in the afternoon they have extra activities like Volleyball and Basketball but are free in the week end so we would like someone to let them improve their english in their spare time.

    We would like to find a proactive girl
    And we ask her to :
    -Be part of the family
    -Play a lot with the kids and push them to speak english
    -Correct them if they make any mistake speaking English
    The main help we need is to help our kids to improve their english, through games and fun, because kids pick up so quick while having fun. Our 2 kids understand quite a lot in english thanks to hosting aupairs/Workaway for the last 3 summers.
    In your free time you can reach the city center by by bus (ther is a bus stop very closed to our home) or can even go to the beach (always by bus).
