  • Description



    We are a French/Irish family of 4 living in Ballincollig county Cork. We are Tatiana 37 years old and Paudie 35, and we have 2 boys (Shayne 9 and Jesse 6).
    Shayne and Jesse go to primary school
    I am a stay at home mum, but I am a doula as well, so I accompany family during pregnancy and birth and postnatal period.
    Paudie works all day, Monday to Friday.

    We live in a nice estate with lots of green areas, 5 minutes from the village. The bus that goes to town is just outside the estate, and works 24/7.

    We are a lively family. The boys love to run around and are quite active, but love quiet times too. They love reading, drawing and play.
    We love being out when the weather permits, but even if it's raining we try to find indoor activities.
    We also love going to the cinema, enjoying a nice movie at home, listening to music and going camping.

    We are looking for someone who is gentle with children, friendly and patient. We look for someone flexible that could work around our hours and help us at home.
    We would love someone that is part of the family :-)

    We are a very friendly family, and we love meeting new people.

    We also speak two languages fluently so if you want to learn English and French we are the right person for you !!
