  • Description


    We are all certainly living a different moment all over the world. On Boipeba island tourism is now open and freely flowing while the schools and kindergartens remain closed. Luckily we have a group of amazing freethinking people of different nationalities (Chile, Sweden, Argentina, Brasil, France, Israel) with children in the age group 3-11 that together with an amazing teacher with focus on lucid/creative/educative play time, meet for 4 hs every weekday.

    From mid November she needs to go and visit her elderly parents and she will come back in the end of December so we are now looking for an experienced and dedicated person to cover her absence since none of us wants to halt the project.

    Monday to Friday between 14 and 18 hs the project is run from a base where normally a story starts the day, followed by a directed activity and free play. The house (which also holds the room and kitchen where the person/couple will stay) is small but serves as a base and also meeting point for the active parents. In accordance with weather etc we also do weekly trips, always with accompanying parents.

    It is important to notice that there is almost no money involved. The rent of the space and compensation of our teacher is all symbolic and after everybody's varying capacities. We apply flexible economy to give equal opportunity to people with varying conditions. It is also based on cooperation where the parents take turns in accompanying on trips, making projects like a cake one day, a desired activity etc Everybody's wishes, ideas and participation are always welcome.

    You can be alone or have a partner and we would appreciate if you arrive before Denise travels, since you then will be able to get a smoother transition into the project - if that is not possible we parents will do that. We would also like to say that if you are able to make a longer project you are welcome to stay over summer (high season here where most people work a lot, especially now after the close downs) and that would be until March 2021. Minimum we need you to stay until Denise comes back - ideally one month and a half since it is also a question of the children's affinity.

    More then welcome aspects that we would like to accentuate are Music and Arts and as for the languages you must be able to communicate in Portuguese or Spanish and understand it well since the kids must feel that they are understood. It does not have to be you main language, and songs, plays or literal language practice of English or another language is however welcome.

    Sporadically we also have the presence of especially one lovely young teenager that comes to help out with the smaller kids and benefits equally from being with the smaller kids and interacting with the adults of the project.

    It is of extreme importance that you have experience of working with children.

    We are looking forward to you entering in contact as soon as possible
