  • Help


    Harvest time is a very busy time for both my husband and I, we need someone who can help with the children on the morning, before school, (school start at 8:30) and on the afternoon (3:30pm or 5:30pm depending on the after school activities). Help with light housework (such as cooking, daily routine...) and the kids. French is their mother language but they need to improve english and will welcome someone to play and do activities with them. They are very easy and love to do a lot of things. You must have your driving licence, a car and feel comfortable to drive with children (small drive to go to Hockey or other...)
