Dear Workawayer! We are a family with 4 kids (Paulette, 7 years old, Vitali, 5 years old, Charlize and Rosie, 2,5 years old and their parents Christine, 40 and Vahé 43) living in the beautiful mountain area between the lake of Geneva and Mont Blanc. Our house is an old farm house, not far from the village, which is a ski resort in winter and in summer good for any other mountain activities (climbing, hiking, bicycling, swimming in the lake...).
Our family is open minded and international, the father comes from the south of France, and the mum is German. French is the main language spoken in our family, even though Christine speaks German to the children. Before coming to this region we spent 6 years in China.
The two elder kids are going to school in the village nearby (10 min. car drive). Christine is starting a part time study program this year and Vahé practices acupuncture and phytotherapy.
We need help in baby-sitting the twin-girls (flexible/ part-time) and sometimes also the elder ones (pick-up at school, help to get ready in the morning...).
You should love children, ideally have already experiences with and child care of young children, like the countryside and the mountains and be a positive and calm person who loves to share with us and wants to discover our beautiful region.
