  • Description


    Hi, we are a family of four, very interested in cultural exchange. We have two kids of nine and almost five years old and we would like to teach them that we are part of a big family. We also have a middle size dog. We live in a small town (Triuggio) 40 minutes by train from the centre of Milan (train station is 1.8 km from our place) in a green and hilly area called "Brianza". We are also close to one of the biggest parks in Europe (Monza park) and close to lake Como.
    We are looking for someone who likes nature and kids and is interested in sharing some time with us helping kids developing english language and go for a walk sometimes with the dog.

  • Help


    We are looking for someone that could take care of our kids in the morning or in the afternoon for summer months for at least 3 days a week (Monday to Friday).
    At other times of the year, we need some help in the afternoon (after 3:30 pm) to pick up our girl at kindergarten (by foot about 1.5 km) and in general to play with the kids.
    We require that you speak english fluently so you can teach the kids the language while playing with them.

    What else ...

    Train is the most useful public transportation at walkable distance. Moreover, if you like riding the bike this is the perfect place to practice (you can use one of our bikes). We live in a nice area close to historic cities (Monza and Milan) and wonderful lakes (lake Como and other smaller lakes) and mountains where you could go skiing in winter months.
    There are also nice restaurants close by to taste fine italian food.
