Hi! I'm Sasha, a full time dancer and owner of a Latin dance academy & single mother of 2 boys, Cairo (4 yrs) & Sian (2 yrs). Whilst life is full on, active & bustling we are a happy, relaxed, open minded trio. Cairo is an engineer in the making obsessed with cars & planes, whilst Sian is already a budding musician who takes his guitar to bed with him.
We are of Italian, Brazilian, Australian back ground & speak a lot of Portuguese at home as well as English. We adore multiculturalism, arts and creativity.
My main work is at nights teaching dance classes but there is a lot of training, admin & marketing that gets done during the day so I am usually in a bubble of work/house cleaning/cooking always with music on. I travel with my dance partner every second weekend, and my mum who lives up the road steps in to help with the kids as well as their dad every Sunday.
Babysitting / child care
The Sunshine Coast has an array of natural delights. Our beaches are world class, clean & pristine. There are many mountains for walking and hiking tracks. Markets pop up all around each weekend, and the local live music/arts scene is steadily growing.
Our house, being situated on the river, is a natural playground and we have many canoes/kayaks that can be used. As well, there are musical instruments scattered through the home.
You will also have access to free Latin dance classes through my dance academy.
We would like to do a rental exchange for baby sitting whilst I teach dance classes. Activities include, giving the kids dinner if they haven't already had it and put them to bed.
Hours would be. 3 x per week at night time between 5:30 and 10pm, 2 x Friday nights per month & possibly a little hand on some weekends. Children are at kindy 4 times per week during the day so no day time help is needed during the week.
Looking for someone with a mature attitude, open minded, experienced with kids, positive energy. Ideally to stay until the end of this year (2017), but if all goes well happy to extend past this point.
We have a big timber house that it situated beside the Maroochy river on a cane field. It is tranquil & quiet, yet only 10mins drive from Maroochydore centre or a 20min beautiful bike ride across the river.
