    We can help to improve English language skills, as both my daughter and I speak English. We also like travelling and seeing new places and would love to take you with us to explore Yorkshire.

    Hi, my name is Natalia. I'm a single mum of 2 gorgeous children. I need help with child care, so looking for a big sister to look after kids in the morning and after school (from 3pm). My oldest daughter goes to school from 8.30am till 3pm. My youngest son goes to nursery from 8am till 5.30pm. We also have a small friendly dog (white westie).

    Ideally I need someone for a long period, like 3-6 months. But if you could come for 1-2 months that will work for me as well. Let's discuss.

    My usual routine is:
    - in the morning - help to get kids ready for school/nursery, take them to school/nursery (from 7.30am till 9am)
    - in the afternoon - pick up my daughter from school (from 3pm) and look after her till I'm back from work (6.30pm)
    - pick up my son from nursery (5.30pm) and look after him till I'm back from work (6.30pm).

    During the pandemic, I work from home and still need help with children (taking kids to school or nursery, looking after oldest daughter in the afternoon, cooking for her, keeping common area tidy, I.e. put toys back after playing). We have a clearing derive to do hovering, etc, so cleaning won’t be required. Just to clean your own room.

    If you are interested, please message me. I would also like to have a video call (WhatsApp).
