    Description

    Hi!!! We are Mari Carmen (Mum), Daniel (Dad) and our daughter is called Carmen, she is 6 years old,
    We would like to find a familiar person who want to live in a familiar environment.

    We live in a large city called Algeciras (Cádiz province) in Andalucía. Andalucia enjoyes a warm and nice weather most of the year.
    Algeciras is just an hour and a quarter from Malaga by car, where there is an international airport and High Speed Train Station. We usually go to Malaga at weekends, as Mari Carmen is from there.
    Moreover, Algeciras is just an hour from Jerez de la Frontera, where there is another airport, in case you prefer to fly to Jerez de la Frontera.
    Our city has beaches and a temperate climate. Algeciras is near to Tarifa, which is famous due to its wonderfull beaches, it´s the perfect combination to practice water sports (surf, kite, diving...). We live near a natural park, where it´s lovely to go trekking.
    In our city sometimes there are aupairs, and there is a nice club, where foreign people go to exchange their language, so you will soon meet new people and friends.

    Our home is a 3 bedrooms house, close to the city center, you can go by foot… Morever next to our house, there is a big shopping centre, an indoor swimming pool and some gyms. Our house has two floors, two bathrooms and a small yard. It´s very bright and warm. You will have your own room, free wifi, shared bathroom and the rest of the house, kitchen, living room and little yard.

    We are searching a workawayer because we are really interested in the fact that our daughter learn a new language, Chinese, French or German , it depends on the country where the workawayer is from.
    We would like you to join us as soon as posible.

    Our family, Mari Carmen (39) works as a maths teacher in a secundary school. She usually works until 14 or 15h and goes to collect Carmen to the school. Our idea is that you look after Carmen in the afternoon and play with her, speaking to her in your language. Almost all afternoon the mum will be at home.
    Daniel (41) is an engineer and he works in a company in Algeciras. He usually works till 18h.
    We usually have tea together in the afternoon and have dinner in the evening.
    We could help you with your Spanish, for example, correcting your writings, your pronuntiation, vocabulary…

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The reason probably you chose to travel and work abroad is because you’re looking for an enriching experience: living abroad and being immersed in another culture while playing and caring of children. We are convinced that we are the right family for an aupair to feel welcomed and make the most of this adventure. You can be sure that we will do our best to make you feel comfortable and part of our family, taking care of you as well. We’ll also help you to learn and improve your Spanish.

    Since our Carmen was 11 months (6 years old now), we’re very used to live with an aupair in our home. We really love the experience and we believe that living with aupairs from different cultures and backgrounds is an enriching experience. Our previous aupairs became part of our family and so they still are. We will be more than happy to give you direct references from them so you can get a better scenario about us.

    Help

    -Most of your tasks will be related to spending quality time with our daughter: playing at home, singing, reading, or maybe if you can play some intruments, Carmen would be pleased, as she loves music.

    - We will need you to care of our daughter mainly in the afternoon. 15 working hours a week.

    -Collaboration only in light housework. You won’t have to do any cleaning except for your own room and contribute to keep the house tidy and neat (set the table, load and unload the dishwasher or some help after dinner to clean up the kitchen), which is light housework.

    - You will have spare time while Carmen is at school (mornings until 4 pm, when Carmen arrives home).

    - On weekends sometimes we go outdoors to have lunch or meet some friends. You are welcomed to join us whenever you want.
