  • Description

    Description

    We have a big family of seven with the kids ranging from 9 years to under a year. I am off work on maternity leave but I coach figure skating and would need help with the kids some days for 2.5 hours after school or 1.5 hours before school, depending on th day. Some days we don’t need help as my husband works shiftwork and would be home.

    We live in beautiful Grande Cache, Alberta, Canada right on top of a mountain. The hiking and exploring are endless and we are only 2/2.5 hours from Jasper National Park.

    Help

    We would require help up to 2.5 hours a day but not necessarily every day. The traveller would help the two older kids practice their spelling and supervise their home reading as well as possibly start or supervise dinner that has been planned or started. Hopefully the traveller has a drivers lisence and can drop off/pick up at the arena during that time as the kids participate in figure skating and/or hockey.
