  • Description

    Description

    We are Alfredo (dad), Eva (mom), Malena (the princess), Rodrigo (the boy), and Elsa (the baby). We are looking for an English speaking au pair from April/19 to Sep/19 as we need somebody to look after them in the evenings while we are at work, and at the same time to teach them English. We already have had au pairs the last 6 summers and currently there is another one till Christmas. It has been a fantastic experience for everybody.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in Santander; a small city in the north of Spain with a beautiful bay and smooth weather, nice beaches, and close mountains.

    When the children are not around we can speak to you in Spanish if you wish.

    Mainly looking after the children safely while we are working and they are not at school. That will be normally on the evenings from monday to friday. In addition we want you teach them English by playing, singing, or just chatting. For this reason we are looking for somebody with very good English, and we don’t mind (even we prefer) if you do not speak any Spanish.

    We expect some collaboration on domestic tasks just as any other family member, tough there is also a cleaning lady that comes on weekdays at home and makes most of the work.

    Our home is a duplex flat located in the city center with an amazing view of the whole bay. From our house you can go to the beach by walking (15 min), or take the boat (5 min to the port) and cross the bay to the beaches in front. Your room is the only one downstairs, it is around 13 m2.

    What else ...

    We have 3 kids: Malena (12 years old), Rodrigo (10), and Elsa (4). They love playing, running, swimming, being outside, and listening tales. Additionally Malena loves dancing and singing. Rodrigo is an expert with any kind of videogames and it looks like Elsa is going to be a good dancer; she is definitely the joy of the family.

    We love going to the beach and to the mountain for trekking and skiing, and we will be very pleased if you join us on our weekend activities.
