  • Description

    Description

    We are a French family of six who has settled in Malta. We have four children, 2 girls, 12 and 5 years old and two boys, 11 and 9 years old.

    We are looking for a workawayer to take care of our four children.

    The children leave home around 7.15 / 7.30 am and go to school by bus. They come back home by bus also at 2.30 pm (primary school) and 3.30 pm (secondary school). The workawayer will have to look after them and in the afternoons (from 2.30 pm). When I will have to go to the office, once or twice a week, he or she will have to get them prepared for school in the mornings.

    We will welcome preferably a workawayer who does NOT speak French but can speak English and any other languages. We appreciate workawyers that stay for long times (2-3 months).

    German-speakers are warmly welcomed as our two oldest children are learning German.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The workawayer can visit Malta, such a small but beautiful island! We live about 20 minutes by bus to Valletta. There is a lot to do there for history lovers (prehistorian, roman, greek, Knights of St John periods...), nature lovers, and sports lovers. Malta is also famous for climbing, snorkelling, diving... The fall and winter seasons are amazing in Malta, as the landscapes become green again and the weather is perfect for hiking.

    He will also live in a French family, eat French, speak French if he or she wants.

    Help

    During the day, the workawayer is supposed to look after the children while I (the mother) is potentially working either from home or from the office. He will have to supervise snack, bring the children to the playground, help with the homework or simply stay around while the children are playing by themselves.

    Every Thursday or Friday night, he or she will have to babysit the children during the night when their parents are out.

    The workawayer will have to speak good English.

    The workawayer will be free on weekends and during mornings and evenings and will have a lot to do in Malta.

    Accommodation

    We live in a big house in the center of Malta, with a garden. The workawayer will have his own bedroom with his own bathroom in the basement with direct access to the garden.

    He or she will share meals with us if he or she wishes during the week. During the weekend, we like to take our meals as a family.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our family tries to live a simple but joyful life. We are used to sharing our house with young foreigners.
    We have already hosted a lot of workawayers in Malta from the USA, UK, Spain, Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

    We expect our guests to feel at ease with us, to explain if something is going wrong, to be curious, faithful and to like answering never-ending questions, sharing games and cuddles with our children!

    We all love reading, playing board games, swimming and hiking.

    We try to limit access to screens for our children and we expect the workawayer to show a good example during his or her time with the children.
