    We are an Italian family of 6.

    My husband is an entrepreneur part of an historical Venetian family making art glass from 23 generations.
    We live in the island of Lido just a few minutes from the beautiful Venice.
    We live in a big Villa surrounded by a beautiful garden three minutes walk from the beach.
    We are looking for someone smiling, trustworthy, energetic, patient and playful to help with the two youngest kids after school.
    We are a welcoming family, very open to other cultures and both, me and my husband love to travel also with our kids and we even lived for almost 10 years in USA.

  • Help


    We require basic cleaning to be done in the youngest boys room: making their beds, organizing their toys and their clothes and their school books.

    You will be free all day up to 4pm when the youngest boy comes home and you can help him with some simple English homework or conversation or a board game to help his conversation skills, at 6pm the second boy will arrive from school and he will need some assistance with his homework.
    Also we require help during the evening routine reorganizing their rooms, their school-bags, clothes ready for the following day and having dinner with them.
    One or two evenings per week if we are out stay home for dinner with them and make sure the kids go to sleep by 9 pm.

    We will ask for help with homework just Saturday morning.
    You will be free from Saturday at 1 pm until Monday at 4 pm If you share dinner with us and as an adult in a busy family we would appreciate help in the house in small things like setting up the table or loading/unloading the dishwasher just as any member of the family.
    The main focus is for us to improve our boys' English and engage them with board games ecc... in order to keep them entertained and not always on video games or television.

    If you have any skill or special talent that you are happy to teach to our kids we will be happy of that.
