We are a Canadian family of four living in Guelph, Ontario. We are a busy family taking advantage of everything the area has to offer (cycling, hiking, running etc.). My wife, Souhaila, is an competitive equestrienne and spends several hours a day at the barn. Our children are Olin (9) and Malik (1).
Babysitting and creative play
Help around the house
We live in a great university town which is about an hour from Toronto. We live close to downtown and all the amenities it has to offer. Lots of year round events, shows exhibitions. Our family speaks both French and English so happy to communicate in either!
We're looking for someone that can integrate into our lives to help keep our house in order, errands run and the boys cared for. We are actively outdoors a lot of the time and it would be great to have an extra pair of hands when ours are full. Our day starts early with the kids up before 7am and there is lots of action around getting meals prepared and everyone ready for the day. The ability to drive is definitely helpful. We love to spend the time with our kids and we like to do our activities as well so often we will need you to accompany us and keep the kids occupied/safe when we cannot.
Keeping our house organized and clean is always a struggle so we would look to you to really help out on that front. Our children are "screen-free" so we would want you to not use your phone/tablet around the kids.
We have a 4 bedroom house within walking distance of the downtown and the university. We have a spare room that would be your own. We're happy cooking and happy if you like to cook as well. Help around meals and cleanup after meals is considered to be just a normal part of living int he household. No smokers please.
Located in the "golden triangle" of Southern Ontario. Lots of attractions both man-made and natural to explore!
