Fun babysitter

Post by Jo* » Mon Jul 06, 2009 8:55 pm

I am a British University student brought up in the Algarve, home for the summer.
Not only am I responsible and have a lot of experience with kids of all ages but I am also fun and enjoy playing and chatting with the kids.
References available.

Please message me for any questions such as contact details.

Highly recommended - Jo looked after my boys (7 and 9) for 7 hours during the day on Saturday - she kept them fully active with swimming, tennis, bowls, cooking etc - and apparently they didn't squabble once - now why don't they do that for me :shock:

PS She is also very good at teaching them Portuguese

Please message me for details.

Hi Joanna,

I am coming over 1-16 Aug and could be interested in lessons for my girls 5 and 7.

Could you give me an idea of cost etc?

Many Thanks

GB

I just thought I'd bump this for Joana.

I can only echo what Graham said above. We had Joana for an hour every other day while we were holidaying teaching my girls portuguese.

I would have no hesitation in recomending her to anyone and will use her again next year if she is still available.

Thanks again Jo, Charlotte and Hannah sent their love!

Thank you very much Paul, I hope you've been playing my home made game!

All the best and look forward to seeing you next year - if I am still about!

Regards,

Joana

Hey,

My director Spencer is coming to Portugal next year from the 28th July 2011 - 7th August 2011 and was recommended to come onto this website for babysitting and email you.

Could you please help me with what the process is?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely

Lucy Shapiro

No problem Paul,

Just let me know when you're due to arrive a week or so before - you have my details.

Which reminds me, will also be doing basic portuguese classes (not as a qualified teacher - just for those wanting to try their hand at the language while they're here on holiday!)

Hi Joana,

Could you pm me your contact details please. Arriving on 4th for 3 weeks & staying at QdP and have a wedding anniversary to contend with during the stay...so had better take the better half out for a nice meal (any suggestions??). Kids aren't small 14 & 12 or bad, but I would just be nervous leaving them in an unfamiliar villa with a pool whilst we were out.

Many thanks

Steve
