  • Description


    Hello future Workawayer! We are a family of 5 from Treviglio (Bergamo).
    I'm Mummy Betty, a psycologist, my husband Massimo is a baker and our 3 beautiful children are Noelia (12yrs), Giacomo (10yrs) and Martino (8yrs).

    As a family, we are passionate about engaging in new experiences and getting to know new people. We want to give our children the opportunity to experience the world and open their minds to diversity through contacts and relationships with people from other nations.

    We have already hosted a lot of workawayers (big sisters) who helped manage the house (with occasionally cooking and keeping the house in order) and children (picking them up from their sports, organising fun activities etc). In addition to needing help with the kids, we are looking for someone who could help us continue to improve our English by socialising and having fun.

    we are homeschooler.
    We are self employed, therefore our days are always different and it’s not easy to combine school and family life.

    We offer a long position.
