Hello. My name is Настя or Annie. My husband and I have a 2 year old daughter and 2 dogs (possibly baby puppies to come!!). Our wonderful work awayer is about to leave us to keep travelling, and we are ready to have a new female in April 2020.
One of the things I did together with our helper, is host in home day care for children 2-4 years old once a week. I would love to continue to do that with you!
We are wanting to spend more time with our daughter and doing the things we love, and less time doing house work. I moved to Australia when I was 10 years old and want to practise my Russian again, so if you are fluent in Russian I would especially love to hear from you.
We value good communication, healthy eating, time together, natural style of parenting, low toxin living, a tidy house, socialising and being respectful to each other.
My interests are being out in nature, exploring spirituality, looking outside the box of society norms and constantly becoming a better version of myself. I want to become more creative (especially through art) , I want to study the field of wellness, meditate more, do more exercise, focus on my passions...just to name a few of my goals.
Babysitting / child care
Help in the house
You will get to practise your English skills, learn about caring for a 2 year old, learn about Australian culture. Occasionally we can take you places that the train can't, to see some beautiful places.
We are offering a fully furnished room in a 3 bedroom house.
Staying with us includes use of entire house, free wifi, electricity, water, gas, use of backyard gym, in exchange for 10 hours per week of help with cleaning the house and child minding. The help includes house work such as washing dishes, vacumm floor, put clothes on line and bring in, put things away in their place, wipe dust, clean bathroom, take our dogs for a walk, pull a few weeds out, cook. For a couple hours a week we may ask that you simply play with our daughter or take her for a walk to the park.
We want someone who, like us, does not like drama, is easy to get along with, is respectful, honest and a bonus is if you are also health conscious like us.
Stay period is negotiable, but ideally between 1-4 months.
