    It's very important for us to adapt the type of help to the workawayer skills and interest (we love you to thrive here !) We both work so we would appreciate help taking care of our children during holidays. We live in a large house with a large garden, so there's also always plenty of possible tasks indoors or outdoors.

    Le plus important pour nous est d'adapter le type d'aide aux intérêts et compétences des personnes acceuillies. Nous travaillons tous les deux donc nous aurions besoin d'aide pour garder les enfants pendant certaines vacances. P Nous vivons dans une grande maison avec un grand jardin, donc il y a aussi pleins de petits travaux possibles en intérieur ou en extérieur.
