We are a young and open-minded family living in the beautiful Waimakariri District, about 10 minutes by car from Oxford township and 40 minutes by car from Christchurch.
We are a bilingual family (Mum is German, Dad a Kiwi), and we love the cultural exchange with other nations.
We have got a beautiful lifestyle farm with horses, cattle, dogs, and cats therefore animal lovers would be perfect.
We offer a modern, cosy caravan with toilet and shower facilities, a TV with a large DVD collection, WiFi, yummy food and power. There are several beautiful hiking tracks in the area (Mount Oxford, Mount Thomas, Wharfedale Track etc.) for you to explore in your freetime.
Babysitting and creative play
Help around the house
We live in the beautiful countryside of North Canterbury, with beautiful hikes and rivers in the area.
We love the cultural exchange and interacting with people from other cultures. If you would like to learn more about NZ farming, this is the perfect place to be.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Our family is looking for a single person or couple who could help with childcare and maintenance work (gardening, painting etc.). Couple needs to be travelling together and have their own vehicle to get around in their free time. We need someone to drop the children off at preschool at 8.30 in the morning and pick them up at 4 pm during the week. During the week you will be looking after them before drop off and after pick-up (up to four hours). If both parents work on the weekend, childcare will be required for up to four hours. We will provide a car for preschool drop offs and pick ups of course. Childcare times may vary depending on work commitments, sometimes you won’t be required on one day, but maybe an hour longer the next day:
Our children are currently 2.5 and 4 years old, therefore someone who has experience with small children would be fantastic. Must be patient and nurturing, independent, energetic and fun-loving.
Modern, cosy caravan suitable for a couple. TV, DVDs, wifi, power and food included. You are welcome to help yourselves to food during the day and participate in the main meal at night time.
In your freetime you can explore the area with its numerous hikes and rivers to relax. Also the beach and cities like Rangiora are not far away. You need to have your own transport to get to these places though, as there is no bus service in the area.
