I drive her to school leaving home at 8h20 so we are there a little earlier then 9h00 ( Leila reacts badly at arriving late to makes her all a bit insecure )

At the moment , your room in our garden flat would be not only the biggest but the loveliest room, overlooking the garden.
The nearest train station is North Dulwich and gets you into London bridge in 20 min.
Herne Hill is 10 min walk from us and takes you into central London very quickly too.
There is a gym , swimming pool and other facilities 2 min walk from us
modifyLeila loves riding her bike, roller skating, going to playgrounds, going to ballet, going swimming, she goes to violin lesson also and we try and go to the park as often as is possible
she has two watching days ( where she can watch 30 min of a child movie like Peter rabbit, brambly hedge, Totoro etc ..) we avoid all screens the rest of the time.I am a freelance musician, I teach, perform, record for films, my weeks schedule change often, I do have to go traveling often and the one regular thing is that I go to belgium to teach once a week ( for at least 24 hours ) so I would need someone to get Leila ready, give her breakfast, take her to school , pick her up and be with her for at least one night every week.
This may increase if I have concerts abroad. sometimes I may need to go for a whole week at a time.

The summer holidays consists of me traveling a lot from one festival to another ( Finland, belgium, Italy, France, Germany, holland ) and I would like Leila to also come but she needs a big sister to look after her during I rehearse and perform concerts.
I would appreciate some light house work but we have a cleaner that comes once every two weeks for a 5 hours to do big deep cleaning.

I would appreciate some help with Leila school work and other activities
