    Hello, we are a young family of four living in beautiful big house in Canberra.. Sarah is a Canadian and Eamon is a New Zealander. We have two young boys, Jack (four) and Ryan two). We live in a 4 bedroom home in Campbell, not far from the lake. Our house provides a perfect base to view and explore everything the city has to offer. We are looking for someone to help out with picking boys up from daycare, some laundry and meal prep. We can offer a downstairs basement suite with seperate shower, bedroom and lounge and private entry/exit.

    We are looking for a person to help with our boys in the morning and evenings. Jack And Ryan are both in public daycare just down the road.. Eamon is travelling between Canberra and Melbourne and we are looking to take on a fun, responsible young traveller who can help Sarah getting the boys off in the morning and helping collect the boys in the evening from daycare and the bus stop. It would be super useful if you could help with groceries, cooking every now and again and help bring in groceries. You will have your own room, own bathroom and personal lounge. Skills: child minding, cooking, laundry.
