We're a friendly family who love having international visitors. We did a lot of travel before we had children and now we have two boys aged 3 and 5.
We're having another baby (a girl this time!), due on April 23rd and it would be absolutely amazing to have someone come and stay for around 3 weeks (could be more or less) around that time to help us with house cleaning and tidying, entertaining the boys and who can be here when the baby decides to arrive so that we can leave the boys at home and go off to the hospital!!
We need someone that has experience working with kids, and even better, experience working with kids with behavioural needs. Our 5 year old has ADHD so you will need patience, a kind heart and not be afraid to step in when needed.
We have 2 bikes here that you are free to use to explore the area.
We would like to offer free accommodation and food in return for 4-5 hours work a day (due to the nature of what we are asking for, this is negotiable - ie. if you work more hours one day, we would arrange things so you worked less the next etc. We are fair players!).
We have a lovely property on the cliff top in Matua. It's peaceful here and there is space to enjoy outside. The neighborhood is very friendly, there're buses to the city and to Mt Maunganui and plenty to do locally. The Bay of Plenty is a fantastic place to explore with so much to see and do.
As long as you're friendly, keen to join a lovely family and happy to learn how to do the easy jobs we would love to hear from you!
