We are a loving and active family living in Ottawa, the capital of Canada, looking for help with early morning childcare (two 7 year old boys) and other general help around the house. We live about 30 km away from the city center, less than a 10 min walk to several bus routes. We are close to shopping and restaurants, library, and hiking/biking trails and we're not far from museums, the National Art Gallery, National Art Center, the Canadian Tire Centre, beaches, provincial parks, and lots of local festivals. We're usually on the go and would love to have you join us or explore on your own.

Ottawa is full of culture - it is our nation's capital and a great city to visit and or live in. As I mentioned, we live about 30 km away from the city center, less than a 10 min walk to several bus routes. We are close to shopping and restaurants, library, and hiking/biking trails and we're not far from museums, the National Art Gallery, National Art Center, the Canadian Tire Centre, beaches, provincial parks, ski hills and lots of local festivals. There is always lots to do and we will be happy to show you around.
We are a two hour drive away from Montreal and 4 hours from Toronto where there is also lots to see and do.
We are looking for someone to provide childcare in the mornings 6:15-8:45 am, Monday to Friday, 5 days with an occasional evening if the timing works out. The main needs are to help make lunches, get the kids on the bus, help with dinner meal prep (1-2 meals/week), help with the kids’ laundry/linens and general child/home care.
We live in a single family home in the outskirts of Ottawa. Your room is a furnished bedroom in a finished basement, with a 3-piece bathroom and semi-private entrance. We have heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer. We have high-speed wireless internet and access to laundry (washer/dryer). We look forward to sharing the kitchen, dining room, living room, backyard, deck and pool.
Food is included. You're welcome to join us for meals or not, what ever you prefer.
We tend to rise early as a family, work regular hours during the week and go away on various adventures on the weekends. My sons are into sports like hockey, basketball, swimming, skiing and soccer and we tend to spend a lot of our free time doing those types of activities as well. We are quite social and often have friends over or go to their houses. We are looking to have someone become part of the family and participate in those activities that speak to you.

2.5 hours in the morning (6:15-8:45) with an occasional evening thrown in if the timing works out
