    We are looking for a longterm volunteer, 3 month minimum.
    Our children are 1,4 and 9 - and they are very active and outgoing guys. We need help with getting them ready for school, tidying up their room after playing, getting them ready to dinner and then ready to go to bed. That is to say: preparing all to put on the piyamas, brushing teeth, reading a goodnight story, preparing some milk and sometimes some easy dinner for them. They finish school at 16.15 pm then help with making some snack and going with them outside would be great. As we are five there is some laundry to do and the dishwasher is to be cleaned daily. We want to share this tasks in a way one can take care of the baby and the other can take care of something else of the list. We are easy and our experience shows the best is to simply make some individual arrangements with you and wherever you see yourself helping best. Dad is travelling a lot during the week and mom is working some hours a week giving german class and sensomotricity at a daycare. For this time we need someone to take care of the kids.
