  • Description


    Hi everybody!
    I am Sara and I am looking for beautiful people interested to help in a just born project in the Swiss Mountain!

    I am a Montessori directress and I work with children.
    The last year I started a Forest Kinder garden project and in September it will continue in Ticino, the Italian part of Switzerland. I am looking for helpers that would like to share their own skills, knowledge, language etc with a group of smiling children!

    Until now, we have 6 children (the maximum number of children will be 8) , aged 3 to 5, and on turn, we will have a different mum/dad cooking for us everyday.

    There is Locarno, Ascona which are nice towns, 7 mins by car and 20 mins by bicycle town; or you could go discover the amazing valley of Verzasca, Onsernone, and so you really have bunch of places imbue of extraordinary beauty. And then..falling water, natural pool, the river, powerful path on the mountain or just watching a theatre piece, clownerie etc in one of the most famous academic theatre in Ticino, the Dimitri theatre, a school of physical theatre.

    If you love spending time with children and you are ready for a beautiful experience in the nature, in an amazing place on the Swiss Mountain, just come and help me to let this project grow*️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️

    With a smile,
