Then lunch, siesta and some after school activities such as yoga, swimming, painting, going to the park with bicycle, etc. The candidate must be a young and active person maximum 35 years old, very much oriented in interacting with children. The person joining our family must be fluent in english and very little knowledge of Spanish that way we will be helping each other with language. He/she will be speaking to our son just in english.
