  • Description


    We are looking for help with minding our 3 children, Chloe 12, Cullen 10 and Libby 7.
    We have some childcare in place so I’m looking for someone who can add to this arrangement in the summer while the children are on holidays. We have availability in July and August.
    I don't need help at the weekend so anyone joining us will have time free to explore and I'm happy to discuss the arrangements if extra free time is required for activities.
    My children are outgoing and independent and will be happy to help any volunteer to settle in and get to know our home.

    The area around our home is full of beautiful destinations for those who wish to see Ireland. We live on the bus and train route so there are opportunities to travel.
    We live in the centre of a relatively large town just 20 minutes travel from Cork city.
    There is a large Aupair community in the town.

  • Help


    We would like someone who is happy minding children and will enjoy playing games with them, as well as making lunch and clearing up after.
    We don't need someone to clean our house but we would need our volunteer to encourage and help the children to pick up after themselves, eg tidy toys, pick up clothes, etc. However, the most important thing to our family is to find a visitor who loves the company of children, rather than a visitor who will do house work!
    We work monday - friday so weekends are free for study or to travel and see Ireland.
