  • Description


    3 month live in childcare help. Experience and references please.

    We have 2 children aged 9mnths and 5 yrs. You would be mostly asked to take care of the youngest as the older attends kinder 3 days per week. You must be very comfortable with all aspects of childcare. Feeding, sleeping etc. Interview is a must. Working with children check and references also essential.

    We ask for a maximum of 20-25 hrs over the week and in exchange you would have our renovated, retro caravan for your exclusive use. We happily share meals and snacks and enjoy a casual beer or wine.

    You would also have full use of our range of surf boards and surf gear. We live 10 mins walk away from an excellent beginner-intermediate surf break.

    Pls note. We have a large puppy who is super excitable and who can be a bit intimidating if you are not used to animals. We also have an active 4yr old who will likely want to play with you

    We are very easy going and relaxed and looking for a mature, easy going, outgoing person to join us :)

    We live within walking distance to Ocean Grove Surf beach and both my husband and I love surfing. If you were interested you could ride your bike to the beach in your spare time and enjoy the natural beauty and also catch a few waves. My husband is a native French man and I am an Australian teacher. We would be happy to share our love of learning, studying and gardening.
