  • Description

    Description

    We are a noisy, fun, busy, affectionate, loving family, non conventional with good morals and follow gentle parenting but with discipline and boundaries.
    Mum is a Londoner and works in television Dad is from Scotland and a ex professional golf player. Our eldest Son Leo is 10 and very sporty and loves playing football and being active in the garden. Alexandra is 8 and very girly and enjoys art, imaginative play and learning to read and write and can be very funny. Scarlett is 7 and loves to draw, making jigsaws and riding her scooter in the park. We have a 33 year old girl and both parents currently work from home so you would be spending a lot of time with the Parents too along with Nana who lives close by. The older children attend school around the corner from 8.45 - 3.30 and Sadie the toddler attends nursery which is local.

    We live in North London Winchmore Hill which is a safe, beautiful, friendly green leafy village and our house is 2mins from the train station which takes you into central London in 20 minutes. Our house is 6 bedrooms with lots of space and you will have your own room.. There are lots of beautiful & parks and activities in the area and we are lucky that we l
    We follow healthy living which is important to us so we also like to cook healthy meals which include meat and love being outside with nature.

    There are challenges with children as they are developing and learning so patience is important and ideally some experience with children is helpful and we always ask for a reference.

    Ideally we would like someone who can multi task, juggle and move quickly as its a fast environment here. If you have had waitressing experience then this is a bonus. We really would like someone that will stay minimum 4 months as the regular change over is difficult for everyone.

    Learn about our English/Scottish culture and practice language skills as always someone around to speak with in a safe, friendly, warm caring home. We have lots of recommendations on what to do and see whilst you are staying in London so you can make the most of your experience. We enjoy learning about your culture too and have had someone living with us for the last 4 years from different countries around the world and enjoy the company and learning something new. It's great experience for someone to learn about the world through childrens eyes and understand the importance of their development.
