  • Description


    We would love to host someone long term 6 months or more if possible.

    We are looking for someone to child mind our 2 daughters, Isabelle aged 8 and Gabriella aged 3. We also have another baby on the way and will need help with general cleaning. We have recently moved house and now live in a little town called Mullagh. There are pubs, shops and a lake nearby and fabulous nature walks. We live on a small housing estate where the children play outside most of the day. Isabelle is well behaved and loves being outside, she loves creative play and arts and crafts and very chatty and adventurous. Gabriella is very quiet and takes her time getting to know someone, Gabriella is very well behaved.

    Both children go to school in the town not more then 5 minutes walk from the house. We would love someone to come stay with us that love children and are compassionate, loving, kind and love spending time with the children.

    We need some cooking and cleaning done while caring for the children. Isabelle loves food and will try anything. Gabriella is a little fussy when it comes to food and is not as adventurous as Isabelle, Gabriella is also extremely allergic to nuts so you would have to be careful and also learn how to use an EpiPen.
