    Help us out with our children (2,5 years and 1 year old) in our beach front apartment in the north of Chile. We're especially looking for someone energetic to play with our toddler for 3-4 hours a day with weekends off. Ideally, you'd speak German or Spanish as those are her primary languages.

    We're looking for someone to help out babysitting. As we work from home, at least one of us is always around but we need an extra set of hands sometimes and especially a fun playmate to provide entertainment.

    A regular day for you would consist in playing with our two year old daughter for 3 hours in the afternoon or play a bit with our one year old in the mornings. You can read books, sing songs, play Legos, draw etc. in the living room while I clean the kitchen or answer some emails. I take care of all diapers, potty visits, preparing food etc. Especially the one year old is still very attached to me and regularly nurses, so I won't leave you alone. We're not looking for someone to independently take care of our children but more for some additional entertainment.

    You'd only help half day and have all nights and weekends off but we'd happily invite you to tag along when we hang out with family, go on trips or to our beach house on the weekend.
