We are a French couple Maud and Sébastien with 2 girls. Lily is 3,5 years old and Loïse is 11 months old. We live in Chambery, in the South East of France in the Alps. We are French but Maud speaks English to the girls and to Seb whenever the girls are around. We both work -except Wednesdays for Maud. Loïse goes to a nanny and Lily has started nursery school, but as it is her first year she only goes in the mornings and Seb or our family stays with her in the afternoon.
We have travelled a lot before having the girls (Australia, India, Central America and South East Asia) and we’ve done lots of workaway/ volunteering everywhere we went, always loved it and only had great experiences. Now that we have settled in a house and built a family our goal is to keep up with our level of English and even if we travel less we’re still interested in cultural exchange.
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
We will share our daily way of life and we'll be happy to show you around. We are very busy because taking care two young girls is time consuming but we are also very active and always looking for fun things to do.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are looking for 1 person, a native English speaker interested with kids to play with our kids and help around the house with whatever needs to be done / daily chores. Help will mainly include: playing with the kids and cooking and can include cleaning, gardening, painting when needed. We offer food and accommodation in exchange of a maximum of 5 hours of work 5 days a week . If you want to learn French, it is not the right place as we will want to speak English only. We prefer short stays for the moment (one to two weeks).
