You will be leaving in the center of the beautiful Crete island, by the sea, in Heraklion.
That means that you will be able to travel all around visiting all the most popular sites you like.
You will have more than 2 days off per week that can be used to travel when agreed together
The town also offers many things, like pubs, nice nightlife, beach, shops, cinemas etc ....
We have enjoyed ourselves different forms of cultural exchange in the past, including studying and leaving abroad, couchsurfing, blablacar and travelling a lot!
so we would like our kids to enjoy this mind-opening experience together with us.
We aim hosting a girl/woman (sorry guys!)
We would like to host you who are proactive in helping in the "daily routine+the unforeseen" and who truly love kids and are motivated to spend quality time with them.
The kids are bilingual Italian and Greek right now,
so we particularly appreciate hosting workawayers who can speak one of these two (basic level doesn't matter) in order to make the interactions easier and pleasant, however a French speaking person, preferably native, or English speaking, native are also welcome, in order to maybe offer the kids the learning of a third language.
The help we need consist of about 3 hours/day of proactive housekeeping, preferably in the morning .
We wish to host people for whom cleanliness and tidiness are important
The help we need with the kids will consist of a couple of hours of childcare some days (no need some other days) , including assisting when we go to the beach or for excursions , sometimes preparing breakfast in the morning and spending some time with in afternoons, reading books, playing, going out, listening to music, singing and whatever make them and you happy. They are at kindergarten in the mornings.
Two or more days off per week are guaranteed;
days and hours of help should be adapted to our working shifts, that are mainly regular but could require a little bit of flexibility.
We will not ask you to be available at nights or on weekends, with some possible exceptions which will be arranged with you according to your availability, of course!
You will have quite a lot of spare time which offers you the possibility to do what you like/need such as studying, doing sports, writing, reading, visiting, meeting friends and so on including enjoying CRETE!
