We are a family of four with a mom and a dad and two boys; ages 5&7. We live on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. We love outdoor adventures and travelling all over the Island in our free time. Vancouver Island is known as the “Hawaii” of Canada with its temperate weather. Our extended family business provides unlimited access to kayaks and paddle boards all year. We also enjoy boating, camping, hiking, working out, yoga and sports.
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
You will experience and learn about Canadian culture. We are an education driven family. We love to explore new cities, and towns both on and off the island on weekends. Both mom and dad have large extended families which makes for the most entertaining family dinners and get togethers. We feel so very lucky to live on Vancouver Island and look forward to sharing our life and the Canadian culture with someone. We have hosted home stay students prior to having our boys and we would like them to also have the opportunity to experience and learn first hand about other cultures.
We need approximately 20 hrs of help per week. We need someone who has a drivers license and is able to pick up the boys from school Monday - Friday. We can have a vehicle accessible to you. We need help in providing after school care for up to 2-3 hrs. We also need some help around the house with light house keeping. We are flexible so it may be even less than 20 hrs some weeks. I also have family to help with pick-up if you would only like to help 4 days per week.
