  • Description


    I am a single mum looking for help with my 2 small children aged now 3yrs and 8yrs. Free room and board. Meals will be provided. We have unlimited internet access. You will be able to use my car when I don't use it.

    I will just need someone to get the kids to school in the mornings as I work early mornings and leave home around 6am four times a week. I just need you to get the kids ready for school and feed them breakfast and then walk them to school. I also go to the gym in the evenings and need an hour 4 times a week for this. I might also need help with sitting on Friday night's if I need to go out for dinner or an appointment. I hardly do this but this will save me babysitting money. There will also be light house work involved .. like hanging the laundry, taking the rubbish out, vacuuming and washing dishes.

    My 2 kids and I live in Maroubra, Australia. We live about a 10min walk away from Maroubra Beach and also live within driving distance to some of Sydney's most famous beaches. We live 2mins walk from public transport and a 20min bus ride to Sydney City.

    It would be beneficial if you love kids. Please bring your patience and kindness and you will love living with us. Help would include dressing children, feeding them and then walking them to school 4 days a week. I will also need them picked up from school 2 days of the week if I work late. I will also them looked after on the days they are sick so that i can still go to work. As easy as this sounds... it's a challenging yet rewarding job once you get to know the kids. A little house work like vacuuming and hanging laundry,taking out the rubbish and doing dishes after dropping the kids off will also help me so much. I would also love a night off from the kids every couple weeks so baby sitting on a Friday or Saturday night would be amazing.
