  • Description


    I'm Maria, i'm 39 Years old, i live in Milan and i work from home.
    My husband and I have 6 Years old Twins (boys) and a baby boy 3 years old next September.

    Please contact us if interested.

    We both speak english (my husband Also spanish). It would be great to have somebody that can understand/speak some italian, as our twins can't speak english yet, but main help is with the baby boy.

    No smokers please, as we don't smoke and we have also Kids.

    We cannot offer residence at our place for citizenship purpose.

  • Help


    As we don't have relatives close and we have Lots of space, we would like to host a workaway for May and June.

    We would need help mainly with our kids:
    5 hrs/day mon/fri

    Totally free in the weekend or outside the 5 hours above mentioned.
    Only ensure precautions anti covid are taken (Always wearing Mask where Needed, practise social distancing and hygienize outdoor) and High priority to hygiene as soon as back home (changing clothes, leaving shoes at the entrance, Washing carefully hands etc..)
    We give High priority to your safety and to ours.
    Please ensure to have health ensurance, in case needed.

    Mandatory to have experience with small Kids and nice to have (but not mandatory) basic italian knowledge (enough to understand 5 years old kids, however as far as the person is nice, kids wont care about the language spoken).
    I would honestly prefer a girl to help, unless demonstrated experience with small babies.

    As we are already quite busy, we prefer to host only people without allergies or special diets/needs, that don't ask for ad hoc meals. We hosted vegetarians without any troubles though.

    We would prefer people to stay at least a month, however we can accomodate for a shorter period.
