We are a family of 4 f us, living Milan city center.
We have two kids: Filippo and Caterina.
Filippo is 9 y.o. and he finished the fourthh year at primary school. He is mad of trains and he loves football, playing chess, playing with Lego. He is a creative person. He does understand little english and he's bit stubborn with this language but then when we do speak it, he get curious. You have to be very patient, and get his attention in a funny way. If he understand that you really care of him, you have got him!
Caterina, who is 11 years old and speaks some English. She is finished the fifth class of the primary school. She likes playing outdoor, listening to music, playing piano, swimming, playing chess and dressing up with fun dresses. She is curious about new people and new culture. Of course she wants to play with you all time. She likes to comb the hair. It would be great if you knew to play piano.
When you are with the kids I ask you to speak and play as much as possible and encourage them to speak. They love to read books. They like playing chess, hide and seek, or bake buiscuts.... So energetic and creative person would be great. I Would ask you to stay with kids afternoon and to have dinner with us.
But you also have your time to go out and visit Milan and cities neraby.
More then a baby-sitter we're looking for someone who becomes a part of our family. It would be great to have an elder sister than just a workwayer. You will get all my support, I am quite a tipical italian mum. I will be available for any problem or worries. I am happy to teach you to cook some italian dishes.
You also have your time to go out and visit Milan and Italy.
We are very open minded people. I lived for 6 years in UK and I do like to meet international persons. It's
something that broaden our mentality and our experience. At the moment, I am not working,but taking care of family :). My husband works in financial industries, and he also loves sports especially football.
A must required: you need to have experience with kids!
I would like to host a girl who has studied or are studying to be a teacher at the primary school or something similar, because I think she surely knows how to improve Filippo/Caterina to speak English having fun.
I'd like you to be responsible, smiling, flexible, very talkative and tidy person.
Babysitting / child care
You will be part of a typical italian family, eating spaghetti, pizza and football supporter. Practise the language. Get a chance to explore the area and see the local sites.
