We are looking for someone who takes care of Ainara at our home and in her first steps in the active learning project that we are part of.
    About the project: We believe children can grow up in a free, active and loving environment that allow them to express their selves in a genuine and respectful way. Togheter with another families we created an educational environment alternative to traditional school for children from 3 up to 11 yeas old where they (and us, adults) we grow as 360* individuals and as a community.
