Present situation: Our border is closed at the moment.
You could come only if you are already in the Czech Republic...
We are an unschooling family seeking help with refurbishment of our flat and mainly with child care.
There are 7 of us, Martin (46), Zdenka (40), four boys (12, 9, 7 and 3) and a baby girl living in a nice neighbourhood in Prague. Martin is a sociologist and Zdenka works as a translator and interpreter of English and French. We have chosen a lifestyle of unschooling, which means that our children do not go to school, follow their passions and learn incessantly through living.
We inherited an old apartment where we live in at the moment, but it still needs some refurbishing. We would like to welcome workawayers who could help with various refurbishing works in the house and mainly with the kids - share their passions and interests with them, play with them, talk to them. If you are into gaming, anime, superheroes or fighting, you will be their hero:).
A few years ago, we travelled as workawayers to France and Italy as a family and as it was a great experience, we decided to host other workawayers in times we do not travel ourselves. We think that meeting new and interesting people is so beneficial to our children, everyone has so much to offer. We want the opportunity for our children (as well as for us, the parents) to meet various adults with various passions, interests, and backgrounds.
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
You can learn about unschooling, Czech culture, what it is like to have a big family, as well as visit the beautiful city of Prague.
We are looking for joyful, passionate and positive people who would enrich our lives.
More down-to-earth, we need help with the refurbishment works, as well as someone to spend time with the children, introducing them to their hobbies, passions, culture, simply making their lives rich and joyful. General help at home would also be appreciated.
At the moment, the bathroom is under reconstruction. We have two habitable rooms, the rest is functional, but partly old and ugly, though sanitary (toilet). Water, electricity, heating with no problem.
We can welcome one workawayer at a time, as the apartment is really small and there are lots of us.
Czech, English, French, very basic German and Spanish
Quite modest, a mattress in a separate room, bedding provided.
Food is included, we do not eat any special diet, we eat meat only occasionally, we are able to provide food for vegetarians, as well as vegans. We try to provide healthy food to our children, but let them try other things as well if they ask for them.
Wifi in the apartment.
We live not far from the Prague Castle and the city centre is about 15 minutes ride on public transport . It is up to your interests - beautiful historical monuments, large expat community, pubs and Czech beer, sports facilities, there is so much to do in Prague.
