    Description

    We are a nice family with two kids (10 & 6 years old) and one dog. We live in a detached house with garden and pool in the outskirts of Madrid.

    We are looking for a person to help us mainly with the children during the months of their stay in Madrid, starting from september. Your main contribution would be related with the children whenever we are not available, even if at home. This to say: play, help, homework, etc. Also babysitting if we go out for dinner for example (maximum once per week). Any other skill from you would be welcome to help us on home tasks (cooking, pet care, help in the house/garden,..) but would be performed on a very limited basis and if you feel to do so.

    The schedule would be mainly focused in the afternoon during weekdays. However, extraordinarily we may ask you to take them to school at first hour in the morning (driving permit required) if one of us is travelling and the other one has to leave early for work. The mornings and the weekends you would have them off for your free time or other occupations. During school free days but nota oficial holidays, the schedule would be probably the other way round: morning help and free afternoons.

    We would like English to be your mother tongue or very fluent, to speak to the children, read them books, play,... so they become proficient in it. Chinese or French as a second language are also welcome.
    We have one dog living with us, so loving pets and being familiar with them is a must ;-).

    Concerning accommodation, you would have a room of your own on the upper floor of the house, with a bathroom shared with the children. In any case, the house is very big (four floors, two salons, two kitchens, bar, gym, large garden...) so there is plenty of space to be around. And it is just next to the countryside for walking, running and cycling (bike provided).
    During the day we work in Madrid city (except occasional home-office) and kids have breakfast at school, so the family meal we would all share during weekdays is the dinner.

    We are located nearby the village of Boadilla del Monte, where there are plenty of services, shops and academies (including Escuela Oficial de Idiomas for learning spanish). It is connected with city center by bus and train, and there is a transport card with which you could take any public transport within Madrid region.

    We ask for commitment, organization, responsibility and some flexibility (reciprocity applies;-). On our side, we are committed to providing you a pleasant and welcoming stay, integrating you in our family and environment.

    If you are thinking about spending a season in Spain, get in touch with us, and tell us more, or ask any questions you may have.
