Hello everybody!!. We are Elisabeth and David and we have two great girls, Arlet and Ivet, aged 9 and 7. We don't accept shot stay (MINIMUM stay 2/3 MONTHS) 😉
Dad, engineer (currently teleworking) and Mum, teacher, works in a High School near home. We consider ourselves to be a dynamic and busy family in which you will never get bored. We would like you to take this seriously and treat it as any other job but to also treat this as a life experience where you can meet new people, possibly learn a new language and discover a new way of life.
Babysitting and creative play
Help around the house
You will experience the Spanish & Catalan cultures by joining our family (traditions, habits, culture, food,...) and you will discover a new area. Our village is located in the "Montseny Natural Park" and it is surrounded by forest and beautiful landscapes.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We need a volunteer who ENJOYS PLAYING WITH CHILDREN speaking in English, able to use her/his initiative, is kind and energetic.
We´d love to have someone who is fun, loving and caring who will play, draw, read, sing, dance (badly) and keep the girls entertained!.
We'll need you to pick them up from/take them to school 4 times per week but we don't just want someone to work for us, we want someone to be part of our family, a big sister or brother for the girls!.
We are looking for a girl whose mother tongue is English as we wish for our two children to have a good command of the language in the future.
Arlet (9 y.o.) can understand and communicate in English. Ivet (7 y.o.) can understand a lot and she can also manage to communicate in English.
We would like you to help them improve their English by playing games, puzzles, going to the park, riding on bike, etc… My husband and I can speak English, so there would be no need for you to learn Spanish unless you wanted to.
Weekends will be free time for you (from Saturday to Sunday), plus one more weekday.
While you are here we would also like you to help out with a little bit of housework, nothing serious, just things like setting and cleaning the table, making the bed and tidy children’ s bedroom and playroom, put and take out children’ s laundry , sweeping and other normal house jobs.
We don't have rules on what time you get home at night or if you stay out and come back the next day. However, we would like you to tell us when you go out. We would like you to have fun but want to keep you safe :)
We would love it if you ate with us and spent time with us as we want you to become and feel a part of the family, but, of course this isn't compulsory!
