  • Help


    My husband (actor) is currently working on a project away from home. I need someone to play, create, relax with my three home - educated daughters (aged 5, 9 & 11) for two days a week during school time hours only. No meal preparation required as I would pack them a lunch/make the evening meals. The rest of the time you would be free to join us for day to day activities /meals or just explore the neighbourhood, travel around a bit.
    The girls are all very creative and love to be outdoors and care for their many pets so if you like Art, music, animals and of course children, you might enjoy this work away opportunity. You are not required to 'teach' them anything in particular. They would just be happy to get to know you, your culture and language.
