    Description

    At our old barn in the wide countryside of Brandenburg we try to create our new home. In august we want to work hard , so we need somebody to play and care for the kids, especially for Moritz, who has Down-Syndrom. he is 7 years old and very active for a "Downy", likes swimming very much, exploring the forest, jumping on the huge trampolin, spending the day at the lake side.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    If we are not in Brandenburg we live in the Centre of Berlin near Mitte/Prenzlauerberg/Mauerpark. If you want I can lent you a bike.
    Now, in summer we stay in Brandenburg/countryside at our old barn where you can enjoy the wide countryside, just hear birds singing and cocks crowing from far away. You can spend the evenings at the campfire, staring into the glow while nearly falling asleep.

    In Berlin: if you want you can spend your free time at Berlin. Our flat is near Mitte/Prenzlauerberg/Mauerpark.

    By the way - people with Down-Syndrom are very special . For them it seems to be natural to be opened up to strangers and foreigner spontaneously. Spoken words or reputation does'nt count, "Downies" have their own opinion what is true at their moment.

    my 7-year-old son with Down-Syndrom needs somebody to spend the time with, explore the landscape/ forest or spend the day with him going swimming (at a lake). Moritz does not speak, but despite of that he is very good in communication. He is very active and sportive for a boy with Down-syndrom. In Brandenburg we have a big trampolin which he uses and loves a lot. He also likes to play any kind of games that includes balls...
    Beside child care I would be glad if you like cooking.

    At the moment i can only offer to sleep in a tent , but there is a comfortable madratz in it. There is only cold water in the bathroom and our old barn is a building site (soon be finished). There is a huge garden where you can find a silent place, lying in a hammock.
    In the morning time I love to drink my coffe on my own, enjoying silence around me. So I wouldn't mind if you prefere to sleep a bit longer... or have the same manners ....
    I can offer to spend your free days in Berlin and sleep at our flat in Mitte. Because it may be difficult to enjoy your free time in the calm of Brandenburg, we could find a solution , for example working 3 days and having 3 days off.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Please notice that you will spend a lot of time in Brandenburg, countryside. It's very calm out there and it's very likable. Totally different to Berlin.The nearest train station is about 6 km close. So it's approximately two hour ride (by train) if you want to go back to Berlin for a party, for ex. and return the next day for work.

    My son is not totally clean yet (he still wears sometimes diapers) and you should not be too sensitive about that. I can do that.....

    We don't have pets but on the yard (Brandenburg) there are cats which are fed by the kids
