    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a non-judgemental family with open minds that enjoy learning from others. Both my husband and I are both Londoners and know our city very well. We have interests in music, theatre, reading, art and spirituality. I trained as an Actor and for many years this was my career. My husband was a singer for many years but then chose to change his career path to helping others who suffer with substance misuse and addiction. We un-school our children, they learn from home, others and their environment around them. Our approach to education is alternative, however, we are quite ordinary in every other way. Our children's ages are 9, 11 and 14 years old. All the children have strong personalities and a have a good sense of self. We are looking for a worker who is able to inspire and interact with the children in a respectful way, someone who is kind. compassionate but also knows how to hold boundaries.

    We would need help for, 25 hours a week.We are looking for a female only who has good English and is experienced in looking after children. We would need them generally to have fun with the children, playing board games, reading, baking, arts and crafts, going to the park and watching a movie. The hours would be spread through out the week (Mon-Fri) averaging between 5 hours a day. This would be either baby sitting, light house work and cooking. Total hours 25 per week (flexible) You would have most Saturday’s and Sunday's and a couple of evenings in the week free time to do what you wish. You would be responsible for paying for your own travel arrangements, We would love for someone to stay long term 6 months -1 year but will consider a minimum of 1 months. Please only apply only if you can stay for at least 1 month. We would like you to start in September. References required
