  • Description


    My wife and I are looking for someone (preferentially a girl/woman) to take care of our little son Thomas, a 9 years old boy who usually meets new people from all around the world!
    We are living in a house in the Porter Creek neighbourhood close to Whitehorse city centre.
    We are looking for a person available in April and May 2022 as an obligation but the experience can begin earlier or be a more long-term adventure!

    We provide:

    - a room

    - food for every meal, everyday

    - 1 or 2 day free per week (depending on our days off)

    - a lot of free time everyday

    - a car for trips around Whitehorse (or gas if you have your own car)

    No heavy drinker and no drug consumer will be accepted.

    What we are asking is very simple: drive Thomas to school every morning at 8am and pick him up the same day between 3pm and 5pm. We want someone to cook sometimes for the family but not for every meal and for sure, we want her to spend some good time with Thomas. We want the person in harmony with the family so we expect her to share our everyday life.
    You will have to know how to cook in a basic way, have her driving license and enjoy to play with a young boy full of energy, open-minded to discover the world and really wise.
