We are a family of 4 from Bowen Island, BC, which is a 20 minute ferry ride from Vancouver. We have a lovely peaceful home on a small acreage in the forest with our 2.5 year old girl and 6 year old boy who is in part-time kindergarten. We are looking for a bright, conscientious, and self-aware person to help us mind the children and with some basic cooking/cleaning so we can get our work done and keep ourselves organized. Bowen Island is a beautiful and artsy community and you can easily get to Vancouver on public transit for day trips to explore the whole city! Whistler is also 1.5 hours away.
We look forward to hearing from you. Thank you!

This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are pretty chill, artsy West Coasters. Between my husband and I we're professional musician/photographer/DJ/software engineer/entrepreneur, so we have lots of knowledge to share. We can also offer you lots of info about cultural/outdoor things to check out. We're a multi-cultural family - Caucasian and Chinese, so we're very open-minded and can help you learn English and/or fill you in on Canadian history.
We are spiritual people and have a daily meditation practice (though we don’t subscribe to a particular religion). We would love to connect with someone who is also spiritually minded.
We are looking for a balance of childcare and cooking/cleaning help. Probably around 15 hours/week of childcare, and 10 hrs/week of cooking/cleaning. :)
Single bedroom, private bathroom, small private kitchen - all in our shared house.
