We are a family of five: Dad, Mum, 7 year old girl, 5 year old boy and a girl under 1 (Shaun, Hannah, Matilda, Angus and Beatrix). We live in New Plymouth on a 13 acre lifestyle block with 9 cows, a horse, cat and chickens. We would like someone to become a part of the family while staying with us.
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
New Plymouth is a beautiful part of the world, our region was recently voted by lonely planet as one of the best in the world to visit. We are surrounded by coastline, we have a beach 5 minutes drive from our place, great surf beaches only 10 minutes away and a mountain and national park only 30 minutes drive. We have an ever expanding vegetable garden that we grow organic vegetables in and are developing a small organic orchard for our family.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We (both parents) work and require some extra assistance with the kids and around our house/ property.
When staying with us, you would have your own room with a double bed and a large bathroom beside it.
