About the workproject

We need 1 volunteer

We are a family of 5.

I am 31, I work for home (I run an E-commerce shop selling cloth diapers and eco products for women and children) my husband is 40 and a nurse at the local ER. Our children (b+g) were born February 2013. We have a baby girl born february 2017.

The twins go to daycare 8:30/16 mon-fri so help will be needed in the early morning or in the afternoon.
In the morning help will be helping us get them up and ready for school, give them breakfast, clean after breakfast, some basic chores such as undo dishwasher and do the laundry /put the clothes to dry on the lines, sweep the floor, tidy children's bedroom. If needed, 1\2 hours in the morning \early afternoon to spend with our baby (no changing diapers or feeding is requested, just going out for a walk or playing with her when dad is not around to help mom). Our past workawayers can tell you that this is not a hard task!

In the afternoon (after 4.30pm) spend time with children, crafting activities, baking (if you like!), playing outside\inside, read books, get creative and involve children in something you also like! We would like our children to practice and learn English while playing so you should speak English fluently. They already understand and speak some English.

Other activities you can do here ONLY if you like:
-help Mom to run the website: taking and editing pics, graphic work, helping to pack orders, helping to put and keep the items sold in order
- take the dog out
- work in the garden (in spring\summer\autumn we grow vegetables, we have roses and other plants to be cut ...)


With a newborn baby life and routine could be quite unpredictable, this is why some flexibility to help both with the house or the children or the dog when needed is very important to us

OUR AREA: TURIN, MILAN AND COUNTRYSIDE
We live in a big village in the countryside, with train and bus station, free Italian school (2 min walking from home, every Wednesday morning 10-12) , gym, swimming pool, dance and yoga classes...The beautiful city of Turin is easy to reach by train or bus.

Opportunity to visit Milan with free accomodation at my parents' house (Milan city centre).

-We also rent a house in the Gran Paradiso National park where we like to go, especially during spring and summer but sometimes also during winter. You are welcome to join us if you don't mind sleeping on a couch bed.

If you like skiing or snowboarding, you can pratice those sports not so far away from where we live. We can put you in contact with a local ski club that organises trips every weekend during the skiing season.

Seaside (Liguria) is less than 2 hours away and perfect to spend a weekend!

From Turin you can easily reach Milan, Rome, Florence, Paris, Venice by train but also some smaller but beatifu towns nearby (Aosta with its mountains, Ivrea know for its carnival, Vercelli etc..)

I can give you contacts of other workawayers and au pairs living in the area, so it would be easier to meet new friends!
