* HELP NEEDED FROM SEPTEMBER *
Ciao! We are an ordinary family with extraordinary needs...
Who we are: mum, dad, 3 children (7 years old baby boy, 4 years old baby girl and 2 yo baby boy), 2 cats...and you.
Where we live: we live in an awesome place nearby Verona, the lovers town where Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet was set. Negrar, the place where we live, is a few kms nearby Verona and we stay in a house sorrounded by wineyards since this is the place where the famous red wine Amarone is produced. From here you can reach many places in a few hours by train: Venice, Florence, Milano.
What we are looking for: a volounteer helping with children care, speaking english with them (and with us!), playing, reading, looking after them for a few hours a day. Flexibility is our password!
What we offer: the warm hospitality of a family, an accomodation on your own with your own bathroom, the good company of three kids, italian food and "cooking class", good wine of course ;-)
And of course your spare time to do what you like.
Babysitting and creative play
Help around the house
We are the typical Italian family, we love having meals together chatting about our daylife. You can enjoy us, visit Verona and Garda Lake and other beatiful cities nearby (Milan, Venice, Florence) and of course improve your italian with classes for free
We need help to get children (7, 5 and 3 years old) ready to go to school.
*YOU ARE FREE FROM 8 AM TO 4 PM!!!*
Sometimes we might need you to go and pick them up at 4 in the afternoon, and then spend some time looking after them...and speaking english. My husband and I work a lot from home so you might also be asked to look after kids while mum and/or dad are working from home. Some help in housekeeping is appreciated!
We need your help for 4 hours a day, more or less, from monday to friday. The weekend is free for doing what you like.
You will stay at home with us, we have an extra floor dedicated to our guests with a private bathroom too. And of course you will be our guest also for the meals.
Our first experience with workaway is over. We have really loved to host a wonderful girl and really enjoied her being very helpful with us...she was supposed to stay just a few months, when she arrived (November '18) but she left one year and a half later! Due to the worldwide lockdown we haven't hosted anyone else, but now we would really love to meet another person who likes to spend time with children, patient but also cheerful and dynamic.
