  • Description



    We are family of parents and 2 children. Our son Oliver (9 years in August) is 2nd grade in primary school and our daughter Olivia (5 years in June) is in the kindergarten. Mom Nina (42) works in the kindergarten and dad Mika (45) is a farmer. Dad is very busy from early spring to the late autumn. The farm is about 17km away. So we are hoping to find a person who can help us with childcare and everyday tasks.

    We live in the countryside between sea and forest in Kimito Island. Nature is very close in Kimito Island. There are lot of fields, forests and beautiful landscapes. Kimito Island is a small place and there are no nightclubs or shopping centre. The nearest town's are Salo (42km away) and Turku (65km away). Helsinki is 160km away.

    Kimito Island is bilingual place (Swedish and Finnish). The main language is Swedish. We are Finnish speaking family. Our kids doesn't speak English very well yet but we are hoping they will learn. They are using some English words which they have learned from television or internet and from volunteer's and when we have been traveling.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can learn more about Finnish culture, food and language. You can see Finnish countryside and pure nature from very close.

    You can live everyday life with us and getting to know Finnish family routines.

    We are happy to show you the places from our home Island and elsewhere. And you can explore the places by yourself too.

    We like to barbeque, spend time at the beach, pick up berries from the woods and do gardening so you join to do these things with us if you like.

  • Help


    We need some help with childcare and daily basis duties (some cooking, house keeping generally, some gardening and some other projects like organized our storage room and carage).

    It would be nice if you have experience with kids and cooking but it's not necessary. We would like to find trusted person who can work independently and can sees what need to be done without anyone telling you.

    We would like our children can learn more English.

    Our son will come from the school in the afternoon so it would be nice someone could spend time with him.
