  • Description


    Please check our calendar before messaging me to ensure we have availability 😀 We are a family of 4 who home educate and work at the same time. We like to keep busy and on the go indoors but especially outdoors. We live in a lovely country and have close transport links to Glasgow, Highlands, Stirling and Edinburgh. We can help you improve your English.

    My girls are full of energy, love, curiosity and have big personalities. They love to sing, dance and put on shows.

    I work out of the house and my husband works in and out of the home.

  • Help


    Hello, we are looking for someone who is a non smoker and can help with looking after the children (2girls) during the day, helping them with their school work/learning, (English, French and Spanish speaker a bonus but not a deal breaker), going shopping/cooking meals, organic gardening, help with sustainability, painting, decorating, plastering, (those with experience in these areas will be considered first) , help with cleaning. You will have 3 days off a week as you will work longer hours a day, but this can be occasional changed with discussion and notice.

    We are looking for a non smoker, this is very important to us. If you have a driving license and can/have driven in the UK or on the left, that would be great to help with errands and girls activities. I am working 1 full day and two 1/2 days week so your hours will be longer but you will have that time back in more days off.

    Help the girls with their school work, help extend on their knowledge and teach them your language and about your culture. Help with tidying, cleaning, gardening, sustainability (grow your own food) and all the other skills listed above.

    Be a big sister, work hard and have lots of fun!

    We are eating more vegetarian foods but 2 out of 4 of us sometimes eat meat. Weekends meal planning/eating is more relaxed and can be a help yourself vibe. I would like to learn more about Vegan lifestyle, yoga and mindfulness.

    We will take turns to prep breakfast, lunch and dinner and you can help yourself to fruit and snacks.
