Help with kids and house in the heart of Barcelona. We love having friendly people from worldwide to help with kids; house: cleaning , organizing and cooking Come and join our family!😊. We are a family with one baby of 1 year and a boy Of 3,5 years old. We are from Brazil but live in Barcelona for 15 years already. We don't have family here and we are very busy since we are selfemployeed and run a center of Breema: the art of being present, Gyrotonic,physical therapy and Pilates. We are mostly vegetarian (sometimes eat fish or chicken but mostly vegetarian, have been vegetarian for many year before) and like healthy food and healthy living. We live by plaza de España, in the bottom of montjuic mountain (one of the greener part of Barcelona with great walks and views of the city ) and at the same time in the heart of the city, close to all.
Letter to the Workawayer
We are looking for a person who loves children, who is creative, cheerful and quiet, but who has a lot of energy because with 2 kids we really need a lot of help in the house too: cooking, cleaning, etc... Our children are full of energy and life! They love to move, dance and sing! We need someone who has flexibility and can help with the care of the 2 boys and can help in the house too. We have already made exchanges and lived in other families' homes and we liked it so we thought that workaway could be a good option for our family! We like a natural upbringing, without teaching mobile phones to the child (this is the first thing we say to the person who takes care of them that we do not want to show the mobiles or screens) We also feel the same way about television (so no TV). Dani loves music, it's very funny :-). Gabi is calmer but like every baby needs care, love and attention. If you are interested in living with us for at least some months , the best would be more or less a year write us and tell us your hobbies, lifestyle, food/dietary needs, schedules, routine, etc ... Thank you very much for contacting us !!! Hugs

Help in the house
Barcelona is a great cultural city with people from all over the world and many learning possibilities. You could learn portuguese and spanish while leaving with us (and catalan here in Barcelona) . Also helping with our family you would participate in many alternative events, yoga conferences, etc
We need someone with flexible schedules (not the same every day) since our work changes every week. The same happens with the weekly work hours that will vary . It is aproximately 25 weekly hours, depending on the weeks. It can be that in a week it is done less hours and the next a little more, but then some week we can compensate with a little less too ...
No smokers, no alcohol or drugs ...
The responsibilities of the helper would be:
Help clean, cook, organize house
Play with the kids
Carry and pick up children from activities, park, etc.
Keep the children's room clean and in order
Do laundry of children's clothes
Help prepare everything for bedtime
Duration of the stay: Minimal 1 month
the Workawayer will receive accommodation and meals
How will the schedule be? the schedule is variable, but to have an idea for example now what we are usually needing is:
Monday: 16:30-20:10 and from 21:10 -22:30
Tuesday: 9:15-12:15 18:30-20:30
Wednesday: 10:00-13:00 18:30-20:30
Friday 15: 30- 20:30
Saturday and Sunday are usually free but there are some Saturdays and weekends that we work and we would need help (not many, more or less 1 per month)
Now that there is NO school, usually you need to stay with the 2 kids, so it is better to have experience with kids, otherwise we have seen people who don't have experience fell is too much
We will provide accommodation, food .
language school, health insurance (if you do not have a European health insurance card), etc. Would be paid by you
You will have your own single bedroom in our apartment ( we live in a 3 bedrooms apartment in Barcelona ) the apartment has about 100 m2 . The building has swimming pool. We give you accomodation and food but we need help ( sometimes we cook , sometimes you cook) . We mostly eat vegetarian, mostly healthy food .
Barcelona is very easy to move by bike, walking and public transportation . Many offers for your free times: from outdoor , beach, to cultural activities.
We are a happy, fun, open and non-traditional family.
We love walking, tracking, bodily activities, outdoor activities, swimming in the sea, etc.
We love to travel and to know different places and different people.
We are Breema instructors: The Art of Being Present and from a very young age we have been interested in meditation, alternative therapies, self-knowledge and understanding.
We are not traditional, we live in a more alternative way and with flexible schedules.
Food: The diet of our family is mostly vegetarian, we eat fish 1 or 2 x per week and chicken from time to time but we never eat red meats, or other types of meat. so we are looking for someone who is ok with food like that.
We do not watch TV and we do not let children see cell phones or tablets or anything of this type.
We do not leave the wifi all the time on, only a few hours per day at the time it is needed, but limited hours. Yes we use the computer (connected with cable by adsl) and we also talk by skype and whatsapp with our families. The aupair can use the computer and of course she can use her cell phone to talk with her friends and family but not at the time of being with the children and yes in their free time.
We are from Brazil but we have lived in Spain for 14 years. We have already lived in different cities and countries. We speak Portuguese, Spanish, English and a little bit of German.
Our family lives all in Brazil and because of this we have less help than the people who have close family to help with the children, so we thought that having an aupair at home would have a more constant support (like the help of someone from the family).
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
5 hours a day, 5 days a week
