  • Description


    I'm a Canadian expat living in Normandy, I am the Head of Historical Services at a Canadian Museum located on the beaches of D-Day.

    I have 2 boys that are 8 and 9 and great fun to be around, they are both very creative, polite, funny and love interacting with people!

    I'm looking for a manny or a nanny that speaks english this winter until june, for help getting my boys to school, and home, homework, some cooking. Obviously, you'd get your weekends off as well as the opportunity to travel when my kids are on school vacation, which is quite often in France!

    You'd get to learn lots of French, live in a sea side town, (if you kite, surf, sail, my house is 10 minutes from the beach!) and a short hop over to Paris, or exploring the rest of Normandy, Brittany, which are incredibly gorgeous read of France!

    You'd also learn about D-Day and meet and hang out with all the Canadian seasonal staff that is hired where I work.
