We are looking for someone to come and be part of our family and enjoy the Canadian Culture, while at the same time, help us out by watching our son while we are at work (max 5hrs/day). The schedule is pretty easy going, as my husband is a shift worker ( 4 on 4 off) and our volunteer would have weekends off (i work mon-fri). Maybe the occasional Saturday night, so hubby and I could go on a date. We would love to have someone with us, that could help get the little one ready in the mornings and if it is a pre school day, drop them off and pick up after. Have fun with the munchkin, go for walks, do some laundry and if possible prepare dinner occasionally.
The Volunteer would be part of our family, and we would include them in all we do.
The volunteer would have their own bedroom and bathroom and entrance, vehicle would be provided.
the Volunteer would have their own bedroom with own bathroom, with seperate entrance.
We would offer our volunteer a vehicle, as it makes things just easier. It would be partially used to also run errands and drop off and pick up our son. As I said before our Volunteer would be mostly off on weekends, mayeb the odd saturday or friday night in a month for a date night, they would be asked to be at home to babysit.
We own a horse, who is a dutch warmblood, trained in jumping, dressage and eventing, so if the volunteer is a horse person, riding can be included on my gelding, or something could be arranged at the barn where i board.
Volunteers are free to do whatever they like on their time off. We usually try to do some family things when my husband my time fall on a weekend together.
we really would like a german volunteer, as i have german roots and would love for my son to learn german, obvisouly we would speak english with the volunteer.
