We are a young family looking for weekly Childcare for our 1 year old son starting in September 2015. Ideally the candidate would have childcare experience or experience working with children and interested in staying a minimum of 3 to 6 months. We are family-oriented people, love to have social gatherings and would encourage and welcome our guest to join us for social events and weekend getaways (i.e to our lakefront summer cottage) to enjoy the beautiful West Coast.
We live in a restored heritage house in New Westminster, BC which is a 20 minute Skytrain (subway) ride from downtown Vancouver. The area has a high walk score, close to shops, restaurants, parks, community centre and transit. We are close the New Westminster Quay and urban park with a farmers market and volleyball beach along the Fraser River.
Our guest would have their own room with TV, digital cable and internet.

Help around the house

The candidate must be comfortable and have experience with young babies and enjoy helping their development such as walking, talking and learning new skills. We are an English speaking household, but would welcome any second languages.
