  • Description


    ***MUST be ok with following social distancing rules when outside the house***

    We're looking for a mature minded, organized and fun loving girl that would like to start in September to help me with childcare and cooking and with the occasional babysitting at night here and there. (We prefer long term stays). Would love for them to learn MUSIC as well, so if you have any experience that's a major plus ;)

    My husband runs a couple companies (one of them is a fun well known restaurant here in the city called Tacofino) and is quite busy with his work schedule, so that's why I need a little extra help around the house.

    Childcare experience and a positive attitude is a MUST :)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They will learn what it's like to live right in the heart of the city with a busy family! We love to camp and explore so getting dirty and singing campfire songs will also be a cultural experience!

    We would love to have this person become a member of the family (three sons, 7 year old, 8 year old, and a soon to be 1 year old, and a daughter who is 5 years old) and become apart of our happy home!
    We live in gorgeous Vancouver, close to the ocean (3 blocks away) and close to the mountains (30 min drive). It's a fabulous city to be in the winter if you love skiing or snowboarding and in the summer if you love water sports or just hanging around at the beach.

    Our house is very close to transit which takes you downtown in 5min and to the airport in 20 min.

    We have shopping, restaurants and coffee shops within 2 blocks of house!
