ciao! We are a family of four: mum Alessandra, dad Francesco and 2 children. Emma who is 13 and Valerio (6). We live in Rome and are looking for an english native speaker to help with children and to share a cultural experience.
We both work and our children go to school near our home. Emma goes twice a week to her volleyball training and studies violin. Valerio goes to rugby twice a week, he is very active and likes to go to the park and play, but he also enjoys to play in the house.
Babysitting and creative play
We found it great in our previous experience to share and learn from different cultures and languages. The girls living with us were like big sisters to our children!
We started our experience with au pairs 3 years ago and it was much better than what we expected!! we enjoy having the opportunity to breath some international atmosphere for a while! Emma's english improved a lot and Valerio understands pretty much everything although he does not speak much in english yet.
We expect some help with the children, but you will be free every morning and the weekends. You would pick Valerio up from school at 4.30 pm. You can have some time with the children then, but we won't come back home too late, not after 6.30pm usually. So you would be free after that. With my husband we wish to be able to go to the cinema ot theatre sometimes, it could be one evening fortnight.
We live in Rome in an apartment full of light, in a residential area in Rome provided with all facilities, park, shopping center, bus connections to the city centre. You would have a bedroom for yourself and stay with us.
The flat is over 2 floors, lounge kitchen and a bathroom at the bottom floor, 3 bedrooms and
another toilet at the top + roof terrace for plenty of bbqs!!!
Ideally we are looking for a nice au pair to come and stay with us around the middle of September for about 1 month!
