Presently we are looking for someone nice cheerful and nature-loving who would like to accompany us to Baden / Close to Vienna / Austria.
There I will be working at the theatre and I need someone at home to spend time with a lively and absolutely wonderful 6-year-old. At home we live without TV (but we do watch the occasional DVD or something on the Internet once in a while). We love our little dog and two Iceland-horses. They will come to Autria, too :)
If you enjoy being outside and love the challenge of keeping a 6-year-old busy during the day, then do consider coming. You could do anything: go to the forest, bake things, draw, watch movies, play bord games, craft things, read, or I could take you into town when I'm off to rehearsals and then you could go to parks, to play-grounds, to the Swimming-pool, or whatever else we can think off.
Definite days off will be Sunday and Monday. You would be free to go to Vienna / Baden or any other place nearby.
And after July 15th you would be back in our home in Ludwigsburg / close to Stuttgart.
Working hours in Austria are between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. BUT as I only know my working hours a day in advance (that's theatre...) I would take over the child whenever I start later, or finish earlier (that will happen often, when the other roles are rehearsed) so you would be free to read, walk, cycle, swim, hike, sleep....whatever suits you best!
And this is our Stuttgart-Profile;
We are very close to Stuttgart where one can go do whatever you can imagine: theatre, opera, musicals, museums, Porsche, Mercedes, castles, poets (lots of poets lived round here!), there is nice landscape a little away. A bus-stop is just down the road and from Ludwigsburg and Stuttgart you can get very far, there is an airport in Stuttgart.
We speak very good English, German (native), some French and little Italian. If you want your German corrected we're happy to help you. You may use a bike, the bus is 2 min away and you would be working 4 - 5 hours a day (not for the 5 weeks in Vienna!!! - that's longer) and have the week-end off to go and see things.
We accept only non-smokers and expect a Person to have some sort of ecological sensibility and eat normal, healthy food. If you are allergic but uncomplicated that's perfectly ok. We did not have great luck with vegans. A Skype-Chat would be perfect to meet online.
Babysitting / child care
Help in the house
We are happy to integrate you into our family and take you along to Austria. You could learn about German ways of life and practise your Germand and / or English.
At the moment we are seeking someone who would like to help us with child care for us, for the summer.
German, English, some French, little Italian
You have your own room / bathroom (shower) in a house next door.
Local sights in the vicinity would be Stuttgart: castle, and Schloss Solitude, nice Zoo (Wilhelma), National Gallery: Staatsgalerie, very nice opera house, Stuttgarter Staatstheater, Planetarium, etc.
Ludwigsburg: nice castle Blühendes Barock, lots of German poets lived here: Schiller, Mörike, Hölderlin (close by), Hermann Hesse, visit Tübingen, Heilbronn, or even the black forest (1 hour by train). To Nuremberg it's about 160 km and to Munich 210 km (2 hours train-ride).
