We are a Spanish couple that lived abroad for 10 years and decided to move back to Spain to become a family and enjoy quality of life, because Denia is paradise.
When our son was born, we embarked on the journey to raise him in English despite of being non-native speakers; but the desire to pass him more than one language compensates the effort.
This Summer we are looking for a respectful, warm-hearted, native-English speaker that loves children and is willing to play and look after him so he can learn new games and get used to different accents.

This can be an opportunity to learn or improve Spanish while enjoying a fabulous Summer by the beach.
Listed by Bloomberg as one of the best vacation spots in the world, Denia is a designated UNESCO creative city located along the Mediterranean coastline, where the sun shines almost all year and you can enjoy outdoorsy adventures and incredible food.
Dénia is considered as one of the towns with the most holidays in all Spain. Every season of the year there are holiday festivities associated with neighbourhoods, streets or traditions.
During July we celebrate La Festa Major, a holiday of national tourist interest where we highlight "Els Bous a la Mar" (Running the Bulls into the Sea) and "Las Carrozas" (Parade Floats). And the town hall offers free sports and mindfulness classes by the beach (yoga, pilates, zumba and so on), truly amazing!
The help needed is 5 hours a day and the main focus is playtime and teach English to our toddler in an open, multicultural, and welcoming atmosphere (3-4 hours). The other 1-2 hours are for helping at home or cooking a meal. We love food, people and culture so it would be great to have a taste of it!
