  • Description


    Dear Workawayer,
    We are a family of 6 children. The eldest is 10 years old and our baby is a 6 months old. We are looking for someone who could help out with the children, out of school hours ( for the time being the hours are: 4:30 to 7:00 pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursdays and Friday and some hours on Wednesday) and around the house . Being a male dominated family (5 boys and a girl) we would be happy to host a female workawayer to balance!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a very lively and joyful family. We love to have friends around and to host people, to be outside and hike.
    Last year we hosted an English workawayer who spoke English to the children, took care of our youngest son in the morning and loved to cook for lunch. It was great having her at home. She had a part time job in Lyon the rest of the day.
    The children love to cook and discover new dishes and we would love to discover the specialities of your country.
    This year, an Austrian student stayed with us for 3 months. She was on an exchange in the Beaux Arts School of Lyon, followed her classes during the day and would help with the children on her way back.

    We just moved Grenoble which is a very young and dynamic city.

    I'm on parental leave at the moment. We need help on a day to day basis for the school runs, to take the eldest to their afterschool activities and with the children in the late afternoon (dinner, bath). We also need help around the house on Wednesdays as they are have an afternoon off school.

    The rest of the day you would have plenty of time to visit, study, work or hike ( we are just at the bottom of the Chartreuse) if you like.

    Idealy we are looking for someone whose mother toungue is English and who could speak English to our children.
    If you are easy going and dynamic and that you love children, that you are happy to stay with us at least three months, you might be the right person!
