    Description

    Hello,
    We are a family,living in İstanbul/Turkey. We have one son. He is only 2 years old. We are looking for a talkative person to him who knows English or French and plays with him. Because we would like that he get the language skills.

    We have a nanny who is caring about him. And also we have a housekeeper one week every 2 weeks to clean the house. So we would like you to spend time with him for playing and doing language practice to help him become native person. So actually it is not a real babysitting or childcare position, it is a teaching position.

    We are living in Sarıyer and it takes 10 minutes to go to Bosphorous by bus. There are scheduled bus, minibus every 15 min in front of our apartment to get the metro by which it is easy and fast to travel Istanbul.

    There are 3 rooms consisting of 1 parents’ room, 1 childs’ room, and 1 library and play room in our house. If you stay with us, you can use this third one, we are not using it much more than our son plays. We have a limitless Wi-Fi internet connection in our house. We usually cook Turkish meals at home.

    We have a piano at home and if you know playing it can be very nice to study it with him.

    Me and my husband are both bank workers for 12 years. We like travelling, cooking, eating, reading a lots of books, watching movies, series from Netflix and meet our family and best friends, going to forest which is near by us to run,walk and picnick at weekends,

    We only expect the basic things from you, like cleaning and tidying up. Cleaning is really important for us.

    Because of our nanny works with us at weekdays, we prefer you to spend time with us at the weekend, you can go out weekdays instead of the weekend.

    You can experience Turkish families life with us, you can understand Turkish culture and practice Tuskish language by talking to us. We really like travelling during our free time in Istanbul, also we like to go to culturel trip on every month by visiting historic monuments and museums which Pars never seen before. We are so lucky for that, because Pars is very pleasant and harmonious child to visit together and there are a lots of opportunities to see in Istanbul.
    Some weekends, we prefer to go outside from İstanbul. If you want to join us, we will be so happy.

    Istanbul is one of the most important cities in the world. Especially the Bosphorus is not found in any other country. There are so many places to visit and they are all really amazing. You should see this city and have a good time with us.
