Hi. We own a hotel. I'm originally from the U.S. but living in India now for 9 years. We have a 2 1/2 year old daughter who we speak English and Hindi to and also starting to incorporate Spanish. We live at the hotel so we're almost always "on-site". The hotel is in a good location, close to other hotels, restaurants, mall, etc. We have a pool, restaurant, bar, etc. all in site.
Babysitting and creative play
Varanasi is a culturally rich city and many people come here to learn dance, music, Hindi, etc. for long term. Our hotel is comfortable and quiet and will give a nice relaxing place to rest while you are staying in the city. We will be able to help you navigate life in Northern India. Also for people interested in hotel help, there are other ways to be involved in the hotel as well if interested.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are looking for someone to play/take care of our daughter, mainly activities like art, music, swimming, etc., so we can keep doing work at the hotel. You would be able to use the hotel facilities and have your own room while here. Spanish would be a plus, but would also be open to starting another language with her if you are looking to be with us longer. Primarily we are looking to strengthening her additional language skills.
We would be able to set specific times so you can have the rest of the day free. Previous experience with this age is a plus, but not necessary. If you have other skills like dance, music, etc. we would be interested in you teaching her.
Private updated room. Hotel breakfast buffet included, with an stipend to use at the restaurant. Cafeteria is available for all hotel staff as well.
There is much to explore in and around Varanasi but best is if you have an ongoing project you want to do here. There is also Sarnath nearby which is a Buddhist center with many different types of learning centers.
