    *️️*️️ Looking urgently! Last minute requests welcome! *️️*️️

    Hello!!

    We are a family of 4. I'm Jessika, my husband is Sebastian and our children are Julia (5) and Tatan (2). We live near the sea in Vinaros (Comunidad Valenciana, Costa Azahar) in a wonderful place where we spend time and know the Spanish culture.

    I work as a secretary in a solar energy company and I help my husband with the management in his
    mechanical workshop.

    We are looking for an English spoken female to help us with our 2 children, and improve our English (minimum 2 months or more if we feel comfortable together).

    In Spain people tend to be very friendly and talkative, us too. We are looking for somebody interesed to be a member of our family. I believe the key to a successful exchange is communication and always to keep an open dialogue.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Spain is a wonderful place to spend the summer. Here in Comunitat Valenciana the official languages ​​are
    Spanish and Valencià. In my family, we speak both. We will always speak to you in English or Spanish. It's 45 minutes away to Castellón, 1 hour and a half to Valencia, and 3 hours to Barcelona.

    Living near the sea you can do a lot of outside sports or go to the beach every day. We live in a flat in the centre and you can easily walk everywhere.

    My parents live in the countryside in a big house with a beautiful garden and a big swiming pool, where we spend many days with them enjoying their facilities.

    When we feel like spending time in nature, we go to the house of my husband's parents, who also live in the countryside, but in a much more rural environment. There, the children enjoy playing with the animals, dogs, cats, chickens and ducks.
    They have a small garden with vegetables for family consumption. You will taste really delicious organic food.

    For us it is very important to find a loving person because it is an essential quality to have. The main task is to have a good relationship with our children.

    We need support for child care. We want you to play with them, sing songs, and read tales, all in english of course.

    Relaxed personailty, energetic, happy, creative, and it would be better if you've had previous experience as a nanny.

    We also would like if you would help with light housework (laundry, dishwasher).

    You will speak in English with my children and I. You are free to correct my speaking errors in English, and I will help you with your Spanish.
