  • Description


    My name is Paula, I'm 41 years old and I'm art therapist - in my job I make use of paintings, drama and playgroup therapy. I work with children suffering from ADHD, autism, Asperger's syndrome. I have two wonderful sons, aged 10 and 13, three cats and dog.

    Every year during summer holiday I take some of my children (in this year five of them - one boy with high-functioning autism and the four other full of energy with no special needs). We have two wooden cottages with running water (also hot), kitchen and bathroom with shower for our disposal. The site is located in beautyful forest, near the river Pilica, 10km from the town of Warka and 60km from Warsaw Chopin Airport.

    I'm looking for a couple - may be with one child (we have double bed), who like to work with children.
    We will be painting, building huts etc. One of you will be needed to teaching my children cooking new dishes and helping me with a little bit of cleaning. Ideally if the second person can play guitar or could teach teenagers basis of carpentry (house for birds) or basis of electricity (making simple circuits) or like to play RPG cards.

    Working: 5 hours a day from Monday to Friday. I offer you alimentation, your own bedroom, towels and bed linen.

    Unfortunately, as my English is far from perfect, our communication will need patience and creativity :-)
