We are looking for creative and joyful helpers (person/couple/ friends) who would encourage our boys to continue their lifelong learning adventure.

Our dream helper would be someone who is native English speaking but bi-lingual with Spanish.

We offer accommodation plus meals in a spacious separate room with access to Wi-Fi, with bus access to the city center and a lot of fresh air. Wroclaw is the Culture Capital of Europe in 2016 and we have a lot of really interesting things to do, see and experience.

If you love children and have an adventurous spirit, we would love to meet you!

More about us - - -

We are a family of 4 (+) Monika, Pawel, Kuba (12), Kacper (8) and the plus is a yellow lab named Luna. :) Our focus is on what matters most to us - our family. We live just outside of Wroclaw in a village, but still on a public transportation line (about 15/20 minutes to the city center from here).

The basic expectations are to inspire our children, explore life together, help them develop their skills and to expose them to new ways of thinking and learning. If you approach all of that with joy, you will be a success in our eyes! As for Spanish, it is a high priority but if you do not speak Spanish, please feel free to check with us about availability.

Homeschooling, Life Education, Unschooling and Independent Learning are all ways to develop your academic understanding and life skills. There are some Polish education obligations which must be met, even for home schoolers, but we handle those in the morning and spend the rest of the day on personal pursuits and alternative learning. That's where you are needed. Feel free to get creative, teach us your skills, use your gifts and talents to bring the adventure of learning into our home!

Spanish learning is something we would like shared in a more organic method. Please try to avoid using flash cards and table work. Try immersing Kuba (and us) by only speaking Spanish, come up with games or playtime, sing songs or explore the culture and cuisine of Spanish speaking countries. Anything that is natural but also engaging would be super.

Beyond the basics, we hope that you would help to keep the home tidy - occasional sweeping, vacuuming, emptying the dishwasher, taking Luna for a walk or just noticing what needs to be done and pitching in would be super. If you would like to cook something or bake something - we won't object :) :) :).

Wroclaw is VERY well connected to everywhere in Europe by Bus (PolskiBus has tickets for as low as 2 PLN), Train (PKP international) and Air (with Ryan Air you can fly for as low as 10 PLN) so your weekends can be spent travelling!

**As for homeschooling, it may not be a concept that is familiar to you...before you apply, feel free to search about it or the other types of alternative education on the internet. In fact, that's homeschooling 101 - if you don't know, do the research and find out! ;)

P.S. If you do smoke, we prefer it to not be around the children and please, only outside.
