We are a Swiss / English couple, living in Mui Ne, Vietnam for the last 7 years, and running a travel business here. We have two children, both girls, aged 4 and a half and 2 and a half.
Babysitting / child care
You'll experience living in rural Vietnam in a beautiful coastal area of this amazing country. Mui Ne is a great place to live, with lots going on in the windy season here (October to March) - and a great place to learn to kitesurf or windsurf. Our local community is one of both resident foreigners, Vietnamese locals and short and long term travellers.
We are looking for people to come and live in Vietnam, for as long as you want (but always for 3 months as a minimum), to run a little play group for kids aged roughly between 3 and 6. In the group we always have our two girls (aged 5 and a half and 3 and a half), and our friend’s boy and girl ( 3 and a half and 3) - and in high season there are likely to be a few more - up to a maximum of 10 kids.
As well as free accommodation in the house, we will pay an allowance of $450 USD for a single person, or $750 for a couple - this role would be ideally suited to a couple, or two friends travelling together (but if you're on your own, and perfect for the job, we'll find you an asstant locally).
We want people who will love to play with the kids, helping them learn through play, have creative ideas for play, speaking only English to them, perhaps doing some gardening projects with them.
We are looking for people who love kids, and perhaps has some experience of nursery/kindergarten age childcare. Ideally you are a native English speaker - if not, you must speak excellent English.
This role would be ideally suited to a couple, or two friends travelling together, but we'll consider single people as well.
We have a lovely (newly built) one bedroom house, that would be for the playgroup during the day, 5 days a week, between 9am and 5pm. The rest of the time, this would be your home - and just for you. The house is situated close to the seaside resort of Mui Ne in the south of Vietnam, a couple of minutes drive from the beach. It has one bedroom, a lovely bathroom, a massive open-plan living space with kitchen, a large outdoor area plus a garden.
We’ll help you get settled in Mui Ne, and help you arranging visas. Ideally you won’t mind riding a scooter, that’s the best way to get around in these parts. A bicycle would also be possible.
Mui Ne is a great place to live, with lots going on in the windy season here (October to March) - and a great place to learn to kitesurf or windsurf.
