    We are a family with 3 children: Andy (12), Ely (11) and Dídac (3).

    Every summer we need somebody to help us with the children when they finish the school in June, and we have good experiencies with this. This year we would like to do the same.

    This summer, Dídac will go to the nursery until the end of July, and Andy and Ely will go to the summer school in August.
    Then, we would like a person to stay with Andy and Ely in July, and a person to stay with Didac in August, until 20th
    The person who like to come in July to stay with Andy and Ely can plan to go to the beach or go to make sports, or turism to Barcelona together, because they are big children now and they like to go around and make sports, etc.
    The person who like to come in August to be care of Dídac has to plan to do activities for a 3 years old child: go to the beach or go to the park, etc.

    We work every day from 8 to 15. In the afternoon we are in home and the workawayer have free time. Some days I work in home too.
    Normally we prepare the meal for the family the day before, but sometimes the workawayer can propose to prepare the food if she likes to cook.
    This is not the same plan every day, because some days I could work in home and tbe workawayer could go out or get the day off, or some days the workawayer can propose to go together with the children to visit something interesting or do an activity. In that case we will pay all the tickets and the meals obviously.

    We are interested in persons who speaks english or french to learn one of the two.

    We hope you are interested and wait your message!
