You will be caring for young children, engaging in play activities with educational content to help them learn English from an early age. You don’t need to speak any French and these opportunities will give you a chance to experience French culture and family life first hand while improving your ability in French.

This is part-time work, usually in after school hours from 4:30pm and can be up to 25 hours per week. This means you have plenty of time for studying or other work opportunities and these positions would likely combine quite well with private English tutoring.
