Hi All. We are a happy family of 5 (two parents and three children) looking for someone to join our gang to help with minding the children. We live in a large town called Carrigaline just outside Cork city. We live in walking distance to all amenities in the town. We are looking for someone who is interested in staying for a minimum of 6 months starting in September. I am expecting baby number 4 and so i will be off and am just generally looking for a spare pair of hands to help with my older children. No more than 25 hours per week with occasional babysitting.
If this interests you, please get in touch and we can talk some more!!!
Babysitting and creative play
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
They will gain experience of working with children as well as learning English in a loving family home.
Need help in the morning before getting two older children out to school and then in the afternoons when they return from school. Sometimes help will be required dropping them to school. Help with giving them meals, play with them, help them to tidy up after playtime and any other light duties associated with minding them.
We live in a large house. You would have your own private quarters which includes a bathroom, WIFI, TV etc.....The house is walking distance to the town and there is a bus stop nearby.
There are lots of other workawayers in the local areas aswell as Aupairs etc. There are a whole list of activities available to you and regular organised meet ups:
Here you will find a list of transport, meetings, evening classes, activities, walks to do, nearest places to go to for trips, festivals in cork, road trips places, whazon cork program and also info if you need to send back a parcel.Enjoy Ireland, enjoy life !
