    Hello!!! From the 1st of October till 18-20th of December would be the best option. If you can just the month of October is great as well.
    We need a person that loves to be with kids in nature. The task would be to accompany the kids of the school for 2 days in their free game. Kids are from 3 to 10 years old. You would be with another person that would be with the kids as well.
    We often go to the beach with the kids, they love it and for bad weather days, we built a yurta that is sorrounded by trees in nature.
    As you would be host by a family of the school, the other 3 days during the week you would be helping the family, either with the kids, english speakers, or with the house tasks, always easy and in a happy atmosphere!
