We are a family of 5 - Archie (4), Harry (2.5) and Fleur (10mths). We live on our farm in Tarras, Central Otago, close to the lakes and the mountains which is great for outdoor activities.
We are very busy running the farm (400 hectares) plus a couple of off farm businesses.
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
We live on a farm with lots of animals so there is plenty to learn about NZ agriculture if it is of interest. We also encourage travel so are happy to give long weekends etc to allow for exploration further afield.
Your primary role is to help look after our children while we work during the week. There would be some sole charge care so previous experience with young children is required. The suitable person would have a sense of fun and enthusiasm, genuinely like children and want to interact with them and be outgoing.
You also have to have initiative and think for yourself.
You have your own room away from the house. It is not self contained.

Maximum 5 hours a day, 5 days a week (max 25 hours/week)
